You knew what they did to her was wrong, but you did nothing. You are her Aunt for God’s sake! Don’t you have any duty towards your niece? “She is their child, I had no right to interfere. Since they forbid you to meet Shana, you know very well that even we were no more welcome in their home.
Estella did not understand that she deserved better or she was just so put off of having to act in love, that she stayed with a person that abused her. Thanks Havisham. Because Miss Havisham was not able to, she lived her deluded fantasies of wreaking havoc on the male sex through her adopted daughter, effectively ruining her life. Not only were her life and relationships ruined, but so was her perspective of herself. No one should ever believe that they are defective, incapable of love, or even that they should just accept abusive situations.
This shows that, Curley’s wife feels excluded and because she is different from all ranchers, in terms of sexuality, she has no power and self-respect. On the other hand, a ranch is no place for women to live in. She 's terribly lonely and feels useless as there is nothing for her to do. She wants somebody to talk to and someone to share her stories with and everybody on the ranch refuses to listen or come near her.Curley 's wife clearly states this in the following quote, “I never get to talk to nobody. I get
When talking to Krogstad she makes the Nurse take them away, and even after he has left she refuses to play with them because she is unable to focus on anything else but her own inconveniences. In the end, Nora inevitably chooses to leave her family. In this decision to as stated “educate” herself, she leaves her children motherless, and runs from a substantial household. Some may say that she was unhappy, but Nora never brought it to Torvald’s attention that she was unhappy and chooses to leave him behind without ever giving
“Mama Elena burned Gertrudis’ birth certificate and all of her pictures and said she didn’t want to hear her name mentioned ever again.” (Esquivel,57). Mama Elena’s emotions towards her own daughter have been erased out of her life. She wants nothing to do with Gertrudis and has forbidden everyone in her ranch to mention anything about
Several researchers have speculated that something about dating “can be toxic to a girl’s health” (Study: Teen Love Hurts p.2). The relationship between Romeo and Juliet was clearly unhealthy for Juliet, for it made her view Romeo as her main priority after knowing him for one night. She began defying her parents and sneaking around as soon as she met Romeo, which is not a part of a healthy relationship. Overall, negative relationships are harmful to both members of the relationship and often lead to making thoughtless decisions, and this proves that the relationship Romeo and Juliet had was entirely
One of his most notable theories was the Oedipus theory, where he believed that a child wanted to have a strong relationship with the parent of the opposite sex, so they started to gain a hatred towards their parent of the opposite sex. This theory was mostly used towards son’s and their attraction towards their mother. Over time, they would learn to hate their fathers, because they believed that the father would steal the mothers affection towards their son. Females were often left out of the question with this theory, so the Electra theory developed. The Electra theory is the psychosexual theory, where girls are in competition with their mothers for possession of their fathers.
Edna disagrees with society prohibiting women’s freedom, so she rebels and rejects the judgement of others. When Edna learns of Robert’s planned departure for Mexico she becomes irritable and refuses to socialize with others, although society expects her to do so. Adele fruitlessly attempts to draw Edna back to her place in society. “‘Are you not coming down? Come on, dear; it doesn’t look friendly.’ ‘No,’ said Edna” (Chopin 42).
Infidelity can break up a home and the ending results can be divorce. When there are children involved, it might be challenging for the children to know what’s going on. In the Article "Children in Divorce: Intervention in the Phase of Separation,” Andre Derdeyn states that: As a result of rivalry or past friction with the departing parent, the child may feel responsible for the disruption of the marriage and for driving that parent away, while at the same time being angry at that parent for leaving. Because of anger and his wishes to be rid of the noncustodial parent, the child may feel guilty and may fear retaliation from that parent. (21) The parents may want to discuss with their children what is going on and that there might be some changes in the living arrangements between the two parents and no matter what is both parents still love them
She seemed like the only person who cared and payed attention to Ender. Peter was a bully to Ender, and his parents resented him because of the past they were trying to evade. Another imperative quote from chapter 3 is in the beginning when the two anonymous voices were talking. “‘He [Ender] won’t want to leave her. [Valentine]’ ‘So, what are you going to do?’ ‘Persuade him that he wants to come with us more than he wants to stay with her.’ ‘How will you do that?’ ‘I’ll lie to him.’ ‘And if that doesn’t work?’ ‘Then I’ll tell the truth.’” (Card, page 16) We can conclude that one of the voices is Colonel Graff because he’s the one who came to try to persuade Ender to go with him.
