“Though Lord knows, I’ve tried all kinds. You know that as well as anyone” (Doherty 2). She is unhappy, and not in control—and she is unhappy about not being in control. We soon learn that control—like her promiscuity, and probably connected to it—is a habit for her. But it is not one that gives her joy.
The Man(or the American) is very dominating, and is trying to pressure the girl into having an abortion. The girl on the other hand, seems helpless and small. This dependency is for example seen by the fact that The Man has to order the drinks, because The Girl does not speak Spanish. This changes over the course of the story. The girl remarks that the hills in the horizon looks like white elephants.
She is apologetic because she and her sister Frieda, lament not being able to save Pecola's baby, although they were determined to find a magic formula that would make it happen. Now that Claudia is an adult, she knows the "why" of Pecola's fate, but the explanation of the story is too shocking and mysterious to understand or articulate, so she does the next best thing and shares the "how". The "why" is left to contemplate by the readers who are curious and wise enough to understand the truth that is not apparent. Claudia starts the introduction to her story with "Quiet as it's kept". The reader learns immediately the most important facts of the story even before the narrative begins: Pecola's father rapes her, then she is pregnant and eventually the baby doesn't make it.
She does not want to have to abort her unborn child, and continually asks for reassurance in going through with the operation. Jig relies completely on the man, and is afraid she will lose the relationship she has with him, or the potential relationship with her child. “‘What do you mean?’ ‘ I don't care about me.’ ‘Well, I care about you.’ ‘Oh, yes.

Did you know that Mathilde and Emily have somewhat in common? Yes they essentially do, and it is that they demand so much that they cannot let go of some kind of entity.

To illustrate, both women inside felt incomplete that they lost what they desired.
“Hills Like White Elephants” by Ernest Hemingway. The American and Jig wait on the afternoon train to Madrid, Spain. Due to a pregnancy that took them by surprise the two are at a difficult time in their relationship. It is clear that regardless of whether Jig surrenders to the American 's requests, their relationship is bound to be a disappointment and fail in the end. This is made clear using imagery in the title, setting and discussion between the two characters.
Depressed people have unrealistically negative ways of thinking about themselves, their experiences and their future. They often think that they are not good enough to achieve that one goal that they had set for themselves. They, even more depress if they have not set a goal.

Although virtues are character traits of morality, unrequited love presents its victims with painful consequences, loss of identity and the development of negative habits. Over the long haul, love evolves into fear, passion becomes indifference, patience turns into frustration and forgiveness transforms itself into bitterness. These negative practices result in behavioral changes in the person that is withheld of love. Feelings of jealousy erupt in most individuals which ultimately lead to a losing battle because the victim tries too hard to be noticed by the other party. Arguably, a person that has experienced unrequited love loses themselves, their values and every other thing they stand for, in an attempt to love somebody else.
