Creating characters from Riley’s emotions provides an exciting way to communicate to the audience the importance of every emotion equally. For example, Joy finally realizes near the end of the movie that Sadness is essential to Riley’s mind when she notices how Sadness helps Riley reconnect with her family and bring them close together again. Secondly, viewers are educated on how the mind cannot process information when the train of thought is interrupted. This is demonstrated in an amusing way by utilizing a physical train to represent Riley’s thought process. When the train of thought breaks down, this leaves Riley lost and confused, leading her to make the unethical decision of running away from home.
This leaves only Fear, Disgust, and Agner to control daily life without happiness. Towards the end of the film, Joy realizes that Sadness, and every other emotion, is important in maintaining Riley’s emotional stability. In the film Inside Out, Joy’s trouble realizing the importance of Sadness, later revealing the theme that every emotion has a purpose, and that there all meant to work consecutively to create emotional balance. ...
As they viewed her experiences on the big screen (through her eyes), they took turns deciding who should be in control and what the best action should be in the situations. This depiction was extremely accurate, (but portrayed in an imaginative way) considering that emotions have been found to be intertwined with thoughts and motivate behaviors (Magai, 2001). Likewise, as Riley experienced events in her life, the memories (glowing, colorful balls) rolled into headquarters and were tinted according to the primary emotion experienced in that specific moment. This was astute since reminiscence may evoke emotions when individuals focus on these specific memories. For example, when someone remembers a happy memory, this may surface a similar happy feeling while reminiscing.

I know many of her secrets and little quirks, and I see what perhaps many others do not get the chance to. Sumer’s best-loved scent is lavender. She sprays the fragrance on her pillows every night before she goes to bed. Blue is her favorite color. Not just any shade of blue though.
She has lost touch with reality and no longer wants to live. “I am depressed. Depression is anger. It’s what you did, who was there, and who you’re blaming” (Kane p.10). Her depression had affected her mindset in many different ways.
With “A Sorrowful Woman,” Gail Godwin crafts a tragic tale of what appears to be an overburdened mother and a loving husband desperately trying to hold their family together as they cope with the wife’s deteriorating mental and emotional state. The text strongly supports the idea that a mental illness drives her irrational behavior. However, mental illness is not the only factor behind her actions--it is not even the primary cause. She has suppressed her own sexuality and denied her attraction to woman, creating an environment that allows her mental illness and addiction to grow until they consume her.
At the time, she believes it the only real way to end her suffering. So, it is by her own hand that she dies, but her sorrow and shame, madness and despair, overwhelmed her, clouding her
In this situation, Hulga had no choice but face life alone - her way of coping with this trauma was not to ignore it, but rather to start viewing reality in an overly-realistic way. She was so aware of her physical flaws, that she actually came to hyperbolize them in her mind, leading her to change her name from Joy to Hulga, as to emphasize her lack of grace and beauty and ironize her own situation. She could so clearly see the details of reality that she became a nihilist, fact which came as a shock to her
but they think of bulimia as something they can control. As stated in the documentary, as soon as the bulimic gets sucked into the bulimia, they lose the control and are “at its mercy”. My mother confirmed this and mentioned that she would be upset with anyone who tried to take her habit of binging and purging—her control— away from

This could’ve been occurring way before the traumatic event even happened, but afterwards it could’ve impacted her even more because she has no one to talk to about the event and console her, which makes Daneka distance herself even further away from others and her loved ones. This can overall contribute in developing a lack of consistent stimulation, comfort and routine for Daneka which results in her forming an insecure-disorganized attachment. This could’ve caused this onset of PTSD from happening, resulting in the mixture of approach and avoidance, apprehension, helplessness and a disorientation, which helps to explain Daneka falling behind in her cognitive and social development. Also, it is suspected that Daneka has difficulty with emotion regulation in overall understanding, labeling and regulating her internal states. Poor emotion regulation is overall at
Restricted in movement and stripped of her opinion by her husband, the narrator forms an obsession with the obscure background pattern that “skulks behind that silly and conspicuous front design” (80) on the wallpaper. As the dim shapes become more distinct, she ultimately deciphers the true figure to be a woman. This is a metaphor for the realization of her mental and physical entrapment as she proceeds into a state of insanity. The intensive need for helping the woman escape reflects the need for her own liberation. As the woman quickly flees upon her release, the narrator refuses to follow as she is so unaccustomed to the “green instead of yellow” (89).
