Hardships: are difficulties, struggles, problematic situations, facing obstacles, all the downs in life. Hardships can influence someone’s life by building up one’s character.

Sometimes I caught her looking at me strangely, as though she thought I might have gone a bit crazy. She’d say, ‘You’re at it again!’ but I would reply, ‘I have to… I’m really sorry!’” (Brierley 167). When he says, “I have to”, it explains that Saroo feels that it is absolutely necessary that he continues his search whenever he can, even if it takes away from his time with others. Additional work and effort are put in to complete his goal of finding his family. Although it was late at night, excitement races through Saroo when
Percy is always pressured by his friends because throughout his life as a demigod his friends always have pressured him to be a hero. Percy’s emotions are sometimes crumbled because his friends always depend on him and Percy is always depressed when he fails someone or can’t save a life.

It takes a lot of courage for her not to just go off on Cecil (and her father’s words echoing in her head) not to mention no one else was helping her against him so it was all her one this one. Scout further demonstrates her courage in the final chapters when her and Jem are attacked by Bob Ewell, when she hears Jem scream in pain, she runs back towards him not further away, this really shows her courage since most people would keep running. Even though she could’ve died by the hand of a deranged drunk man she still went back and got her brother up and out of there as fast as she possibly could, not even looking
In the book “Things Fall Apart“ Okonkwo is a very strong man and from time to time he starts showing his true self. He has a lot of responsibilities and other things he has to do around the living environment and interact with lots of people. Okonkwo changes from being that strong man, to a man who feels like his tribe is not with him when he wants to go to war with the missionaries. For someone like Okonkwo a lot of people looks up to him and while in the tribe Okonkwo beats his wives and children. Not good behavior for someone who is supposedly looked at as strong.
Throughout the journey, they experienced trying circumstances that tested their resolve. Ultimately, they were able to choose the “correct” course of action.. The one thing absolute about the process is the hero’s strength and determination. In Atonement, McEwan uses contrasting language to demonstrate the paradox between the certainty of structured choices and the difficulty of overcoming adversity.

When Minerva began organizing a resistance, she was aware of the dangers that came with it. However, she sacrificed her personal happiness for the greater good. When Minerva began to become seriously involved in the resistance, she asked Patria to take care of her child even though it greatly pained her to do so. Patria responded by saying “‘But Minerva, your own child--’ I began and then I saw it did hurt her to make this sacrifice she was convinced she needed to make”(155).
It can be inferred that he will never be able to forgive himself after what he did. This story shows an important life lesson. We can learn from his experience because it teaches us to love others for who they are, not what they can not do. When we care for others despite how they look, we can achieve a better life full of less pride and learn to think about others before we think about
