Death is not so light a concept as to glance off of those it does not take. Oftentimes, when death claims someone close to you, it seems easy to fall into a lethargic pit of despair, contenting oneself only to dwell on the morose incontrollable nature of the universe. I know I felt this way, especially with the guilt laid upon me with the death of my brother. I do not claim to know anyone else’s grief, or to know the best way for anyone to deal with the loss of such a beloved girl. I do know, however, that “when you lose something you love, faith takes over” (Tan 2166).
Grieving is a necessary component of adjustment to the loss. Communication is also a very necessary component to adjusting. Time is important, cultural differences are apparent; some cultures celebrate death, even though there is other types of loss, other cultures grieve death. Some individuals celebrate divorce with parties, others go into deep depression, the environment, and ethnicity and religion play a major role in adaptation. 4.
Alaska explains that the person was talking about the pain, the pain which is brought to people who have done something wrong and in return something or someone wronged them. I find the passage extremely insightful and very deep. To me it is a key scene in the book, seeing as the mystery of his last words is finally unsolved. During the scene, Alaska and Miles are laying down very close next to each other. It’s a very personal scene between the two of them and not much is
These emotions are the things that make the character come to life. We are able to see these feelings and emotions through the deep thoughts that the character reveals. One example of this is when the character say’s “every act is a symbol the weight of which crushes me” (Kane p.18). This statement is heavy; you can feel the burdens of her illness crushing down on her. In terms of our unnamed character, losing a lover caused some of her emotional strains.
Suffering remains very present throughout “Was It a Dream?” and All My Sons as well, if it wasn’t for the suffering and coping mechanisms that the deaths of the narrator’s wife, Alaska Young, and Joe Keller brought upon the characters surrounding these abusers, their progression to closure – or realization – would be inevitably pushed away. The essence these stories capture is the utter heaviness choices have in the future. Experiencing the journey of suffering and consequences is a process that provokes confusion but with confusion, there always comes revelation. Each author portrays a unique form of suffering, proving that the only way out of the turmoil painful consequences bring is to acknowledge the pain suffering
Theme is defined as the underlying meaning in a work of literature. Authors develop theme to connect literature to our daily lives. “The Scarlet Ibis” by James Hurst, “A and P” by John Updike, and “Cold Equations” by Tom Goodwin, all have different themes, but place an important emphasis on the heartache and pain caused by learning the truths in life. In these short stories, each character has a realization about life and it changes their future perspective on the world. The theme in “The Scarlet Ibis” is the duality of pride, and the idea that although some pride is good, when you let it control you, it can be devastating.
Grief is a common and firsthand experience that deviates and is influenced by the loss. It consist of many stages and can be dealt with by treatments and with the proper help.

The first part “Wilting” is about the hardships of relationships and also the breakups that come with it. This segment shows the author wanting more in a relationship and realizing they needed someone better to be able to love them, but it also brings out the side of the author realizing that they didn 't want anyone else, that they wanted them but new they could never have them back. The “ Wilting” segment also describes the sadness and the depressing part of when the one they loved left them for whatever reasons, it shows that they dwell on the person leaving to either showing it being there fault and that they should take full credit for there being something wrong with them rather put the blame on the both of them. And then they other part is another the other halfs fault but it never falls in between both of the people in the relationship. The second segment is the “ Falling”.
One can’t be happy or attempt to be happy if that person is suffering depression; therefore, expressing agony is a starting point in achieving happiness. As Weiner also says, “A love of language may not guarantee happiness, but it allows you to express your despair eloquently, and that is worth something. As any poet (or blogger) knows, misery expressed is misery reduced” (Weiner 158). During his travel, Weiner discovers that in any language, there are more words describing sadness than words describing happiness. People tend to express their grief more strongly than their happiness.
Displaying an underlying emotional motivation that allows Priam to break free of the conventional bonds. Contrastingly, the character of Somax is another character to compare as his motivations are rooted his identity and experiences of mortality; he has surviving grief about his son’s death due to his acceptance ‘that nothing will change if I punish her [Beauty].’ Malouf utilises Somax to introduce life as a cycle, that all things will come to an end through the foreboding embedded narratives that end with a moral. Malouf highlights the importance of the ‘misery of this moment will last forever,’ he utilises alliteration to emphasise subtle sadness of life
Grief is the typical inner feeling a person face in response to a loss, while mourning is the condition of encountering that loss. In spite of the fact that individuals frequently endure emotional pain in light of loss of anything that is beloved to them (for instance, a loved one, a job, a spouse or other relationship, one 's feeling of safety, a house), grief generally refers to the passing of a friend or family member through death. Causes While it is not clear precisely what causes complicated or prolonged grief, the reason for ordinary grief can most usually be credited until the death of a friend or family member. As per the University of Rochester, depression or grief can likewise be brought on by the following: 1. Loss of a romantic
It sounds so cliché to say that you do not understand the grieving process until you have to deal with it, but it is true. There are an abundance of stigmas surrounding grief, just like there is with death. Didion acknowledges these stigmas and how she did not cope in a typical manner (Didion, 2005). This is a real-life example of how the distorted
Anger is an emotion when experiences can lead to regrettable actions and lost of control. Anger can affect a person physical as well as their mental health. When someone is angry and they lash out their anger on someone or something; their anger has not disappeared because they have unleashed it. The source of the problem need to be resolve in order for a person to not stay angry. According to Thurman (2014), anger is harmful to others and the person who is angry.
This dependence is shown in Butler’s Beside Oneself when she frequently uses the word “we” to describe how we as humans are constantly vulnerable and dependent to one another. As Butler said “Consider the demands that are imposed upon us by living in a world of beings who are, by definition, physically dependent on one another, physically vulnerable to one another” (117). Our dependence to one another can be related to my groupmates memoir. In their memoir state how after their Nonnie had passed away, their dependence affected their relationship. They stated “I learned how to talk for myself, how to comfort myself, love myself”.
