After her parents knew that, she got into much trouble from her parents and from her friends. She didn’t like school and she couldn’t have any friends over. This is called bullying, and she made all of her friends upset at her because she was talking to the boys that her friends like. I feel this experience is
When that feeling of control is suddenly challenged by something as traumatic as sexual assault, some may feel embarrassed that they can no longer defend themselves because, in a situation like that, there is only so much the victim can do to defend himself or herself mentally and physically. The night Marianne was attacked, she was with her friend. When Marianne’s mother, Corinne found out about what happened to her on prom night, she called Trisha's mother to apologize if her daughter had been involved in what happened. Although Marianne’s friend wasn’t really involved, some people would try and show some type of sympathy for someone who has gone through such a traumatic experience. Instead, Trisha's mom immediately decided to exit herself and her daughter from the situation.

When Holden felt really alone, he gave Sally a buzz and they went on a date. He said “I didn't much want to see it, but I knew old Sally, the queen of the phonies, would start drooling all over the place when I told her I had tickets for that, because the Lunts were in it and all.” (116, Sallinger) for Sally. For Holden “being phony” is really poor thing. If he uses word “phony” for his date, it means he really doesn’t like her and doesn’t want to go on a date with her. He just wanted to use her for forget his loneliness.
She provides clues in her letters that she should have realized and that in hindsight, makes her realize precisely why the relationship between her and Ed was doomed from the start. Since all of the characters see this except for Ed and Min, it also shows that "love is blind" because those engrossed in the relationship see things much differently than those outside of the relationship. The title of the book gave away the whole climax, the readers were aware that Ed and Min were broken up, but it's not until the end of the book where we finally figure out why. Min finds out that Ed has been cheating on her with his ex-girlfriend, Annette.So therefore Min dumps him as soon as she found out,.

“Speak up, because the day you don’t speak up for the things that matter to you is the day your freedom truly ends”. Speak up when you have the change because if you don’t you will end up like me .

Even though Nath and James both did play a very significant role in Lydia’s decision to commit suicide, Marilyn should be to blame for Lydia’s death because she put too much pressure on her, she disregarded her feelings, and because she never promoted a healthy social life. Marilyn’s troubled past promoted her decision to pressure her daughter, which eventually led to her demise. For example, after Lydia said that she lost her mother’s cookbook, Marilyn thought, “It was a sign, Marilyn decided. For her, it was too late. But it wasn’t too late for Lydia.
I say this because she is scared of disappointing everyone, so she lies in order to save herself from the humility she’d face. I can relate to this, especially when I was younger, because whenever I got in trouble I’d try and pin it on someone else so I wouldn’t disappoint anyone, especially my parents. The modern day situation of what Mayella is going through is similar to when someone tells the world that they are a member of the LGBTQ. In a small town, such as ours, it is a great deal of shock when someone, “Comes out of the closet.” Often times, it results in everyone either accepting it, or people being outraged. I think what Mayella did was less socially acceptable then my example, but they are one in the same, and people most often times try to hide what they feel to be accepted by everyone
Skylar Neese, unsuspecting like Caesar, had gone to enjoy a night with her friends that ended in her death. Her supposed best friends’ cause for the murder was “we just didn’t like her anymore” similar with Caesar, his death the result of the fear of tyranny (Sandt). Both of their deaths were a result of betrayal, dislike, and fear. Caesar, many times put trust in his friends and confided in them, his reason being “because I love you, I will let you know” (2.2.79). In Skylar Neese’s case, though she was said to be fighting with her friends at the time, she still had trust and faith that they wouldn’t hurt her; unfortunately,
Jing-Mei merely wished that she “could shout back and cry and blame her [Mother] for all [her] misery…” , not that she could take the responsibility upon herself and strive to do better next time. This allows us to see that in the world of “A Hunger Artist”, Jing-Mei would have blamed her crisis, on the audience for not appreciating her work and by comparison, keeping her from being successful. Moreover, Jing-Mei would have condemned her manager, saying that he didn’t properly do his job of finding her good performances. Shown through the way that Jing-Mei whines, “Why don’t you like me the way I am?” it can be seen that she believes that she should be able to put in little to no effort and receive praise. With this mindset, she’d be more likely to blame her manager for not booking good performances, when in reality she just didn’t put in the effort.
