For instance, the kids that lock Margot in the closet were lacking of maturity when they did that to Margot and Charlie’s co-workers in Flowers for Algernon were just not thinking clearly when they signed for the petition. Therefore, jealousy can be handled in a variety of ways and the way that jealousy was controlled in both of these stories were some
Words made the stories so interesting that it bothered many of the listeners. “Whether you know it or not, keep it to yourself. I don’t like it when someone kills a story right in the middle” (Schami 219). The stories had people so deeply encaptured that whether or not they had heard it, they were ready to hear it again told by a different person and from a different perspective. “There are other stories about listeners who were so curious or in such a state of suspense, they couldn’t sleep.” (Schami 103).

Why is this? Aren’t we supposed to be good people? The matter is that many don't intervene due to the consequences it can lead to their families, their cultural background leading to what they were taught and the risk they are putting upon themselves. Many people chose to be bystanders in risky situations due to the fact that it leads to their family suffering the consequences.

Fights were common because people in The Great Gatsby weren't necessarily in a relationship where they liked the person that they were with, they were in the relationship for the money. “Most of the remaining women were now having fights with men said to their husbands”(Fitzgerald 51). This passage is an example of how much people argue and fought within their relationship.

301) once I realized I was occasionally using this form of argument I immediately stopped. This type of argument I don 't think could ever be productive.

Tactics such as criticism, intimidation, isolating them from their family and friends to gain control over them(Lwa,2018). The last country, I chose is Saudi Arabia.

One day Jose Michard Teixeira responded to a writing prompt about patience. Teixeira doesn’t have patience for things like having feeling for people that doesn’t have his best interest in heart. He doesn’t feel like being used anymore. If I was him I would agree with him. I think that almost everybody had a time that a friend was disloyal to him or her once or that you don’t want to be nice anymore because you always have a negative response when you try to reach out.
Here minor outbursts of anger and rage are exhibited by the abuser. The woman often excuse these outbursts due to a bad day, an accident, or the mentality that “he did not mean to” attitude.
