Emily has tried the simple common tasks of solutions. She has tried to talk to her fiancée and friends when she gets jealous, but this only can happen over-text and she said many find that it’s too late at that point to help at all. She has tried to talk to the people who cause these emotions or those who make it worse. She said that when she does it makes her feel poorly because it’s her issue and “shouldn’t have to deal with it.” Emily has considered the on-campus counseling that is provided but she states she keeps making excuses for her not to do it. These excuses are her having no time, no money, or feeling her issues aren’t serious enough to go to a professional.
Jig, the women in the relationship, is seemingly interested in keeping the child. She is interested in settling down at this point in life. She is tired of having a shaky relationship with the man. The relationship only revolves around surface value things like drinking and
Despite of being right in my accusations of her sister’s ingenuine behavior, every time I demand that my wife tries to see the true side of the story, she keeps quiet and avoids confrontation. As follows, I become extremely irritated and annoyed by her withdrawal from the conflict. According to the book, the person using the avoidance conflict style wishes the problem or conflict would go away by itself and appears uninterested in managing the conflict or in meeting the needs of the other person involved in the disagreement. As a positive side of her conflict management style in this particular situation by withdrawing she does not allow me gunny-sacking, that only leads to increasing tension, escalating emotions, and reducing listening effectiveness, as mentioned in the textbook. However, by not resolving this issue the tension in relationship with my spouse builds
This theme is subtly shown throughout the story, but becomes more apparent after the main event, the slaughter. After Date Bed is presumed missing, Mud, despite the fact that she is not of She-S blood, shows concern for her friend and adopted family member throughout the story – “It is just as well that Mud’s thoughts can’t be heard because what she is thinking is, “I’m the one who loves her. None of you loves her as I do,” and the uselessness of her love arouses her to such a pitch of anguish that she thinks of returning to the plain and searching for Date Bed on her own” (Gowdy, 105). The other She-S’s feel the same way as well – She-Snorts states, “I would not go to The Safe Place…knowing that Date Bed might still be alive and lost” (Gowdy, 249). If the She-S’s didn’t care for their family as much, they would have abandoned all thought of Date Bed and wouldn’t bother searching for her.
In conclusion, the novel “Their Eyes Were Watching God” presents the theme of love and that being in a relationship hinders independence but in an unique way. Hurston uses symbolism like Janie’s head rag which stifled her independence and when burned, made her feel free. She also uses the motif of communities, which are ever present throughout the book, using specific examples such as when Janie isn't allowed to go to the funeral, which hinders her independence because she isn't making choices for herself and isn't doing
Throughout their conversation, you can decipher a tone where the conversation sheds light on his feelings towards the procedure and her feelings. He says “It’s really an awfully simple operation, Jig. It’s not really an operation at all” (Hemingway 124), in an effort to persuade her to in fact have the abortion. She, on the other hand, seems silent at first, but then questions how their life will be better after this procedure. Her uncertainty shows in her responses, and in other findings “… the sensuous beauty of a love relation that is quickly deteriorating, now that she has become conscious of her lover’s selfishness” (Maynard 273).
However, there is nothing substantial holding their relationship together. As Hemingway wrote, “That’s all we do, isn’t it -- look at things and try new drinks?” (Hemingway 476). The reader infers the girl’s desperation to stay with the American through her pleading and submissiveness. Her insecurity draws her away from reality as she willingly becomes docile in hopes to keep the American at her side, even if it means she has to give up her baby. The blundering small talk about
She says she “wants time to function as a power wash”, and remove the memory of the ride from her mind before she enters her house. This stanza shows how distressed the narrator feels about the comment, proving that her method of coping is not viable, and that she cannot let go of the small instances of racism she experiences. Her attempts to ignore times when she is offended do not work, and in that regard, are little better than John Henryism. She still does not confront racism, which would allow her some closure on the matter, but rather than fight against
She looks at the hills, the bead curtain, or the ground, but not at him. He looks at her, but not sympathetically, only waiting for the chance to press his argument to go forth with the abortion (Hannum). This proves Jig’s unsureness of the decision she’s about to make it, because no matter what time zone it is any man should figure out women who have something on their mind barely talk, look everyone else or, worst of all, could barely look at you. Faced with the approach of the Madrid train, after the fresh presentation of the American’s selfishness, Jig has realized that he does not love her, wants her only as a sex partner, and shows no promise of maturing (Hannum). Jig’s smile at the end of the store does not represent her simple agreement to the American’s but in fact signals her readiness to move beyond her relationship with him (Hannum).
Rather than exhibit her unwavering confidence that their plan will work, she begins to realize that they aren’t gaining anything and that concealing her agitation is taxing and difficult. She views herself as the practical advisor who keeps her and Macbeth’s mental states and actions in check. Since she is Macbeth’s advisor and supporter, she feels the need to set aside her feelings of doubt in his presence and think practically to advise and reassure him. The effect that this has on Lady Macbeth is that in concealing her emotions, she doesn’t deal with them or vent and it leads to the decline of her mental health later in the play. The irony in this is that in Act II she
(STEWE-2) Najmah is again unable to open up to Nusrat because of her trigger avoidance, “I try to smile at her, she is very kind, but I still do not want to be touched and I do not yet want to talk about my family” (Staples 206). Once again, her trigger avoidance acts as a tool for the author to explain that loss affects a person in a way that they will never be the same again. As Najmah does not wish to talk about her family, it shows that by avoiding any and all possible triggers she protects herself from pain. The suffering she experienced during and after the bombing explains her wish to never experience it ever again. But that in itself shows that their deaths control her actions and her feelings.
(Page 149-150) Changing yourself is very hard, but avoiding your bad habits and ignoring people is easy. After she tries to change and fails, Maleeka choses to avoid and ignore the people who taunt her.

He shows concern due to Edna 's lack of socialization with other females and general rebellion against societal norms. Edna is able to recognize that the love she feels for another man is not the main reason that she is going through what she is going through. Edna says “it was not love which had held this cup of life to her lips” (Chopin 140). She is able to know that this desire for a life of free will is driven by her own desire. Edna begins to recognize the faults in her life and starts to revolutionize her life and
She shows that she knows that hey forbid her from writing, but it is the only way that she knows she will get better. Even though she will well aware that her husband, sister and doctor find it a un- likely cure and are against it. We are also to that the narrator tries to cope with her problems as well. Unlike John, who simply ignores his obstacles, the narrator descends into a sense of imagination to help mentally heal herself. The narrator becomes almost compulsively obsessed with the idea of freeing the women behind the bars of the yellow wallpaper.
She attempted to pray as her papa did, but is warned not to, because other home landers had been beaten over praying and keeping their faith. Aminata thought to her self “ I was not to pray. Not to expose myself to beatings” (PG151) which lead her to feel as if she had given up her religion and faith, family as well as her freedom. She has lost everything. Therefore leaving her with no hope.
