Today, in our generation, a large sum of people is living negative lives, but Anne Frank was not one of those people. At the time of the Holocaust, from 1933 to 1945, she was a Jewish teenager, and although she was sent to a concentration camp at the age of 15, she was exceedingly positive and always tried to find the best in everyone. Prior to the holocaust, Anne, her friends and family didn’t have to stay in a crunched, secluded annex to stay safe. Their lives were quite difficult, and they were required to be as silent as possible in their hiding spot during most hours of the day.

I have watched a lot of inspiring movies and I would say that Temple Grandin is the most striking. This movie revolves around a woman named, Temple Grandin, who became successful despite having limitations due to her autism. She graduated as college valedictorian and she also completed her Ph.D. Furthermore, the movie also shows the importance of moral support and understanding to the persons with autism for their consolation and feeling of relief. I commend the movie for effectively showing how a person with autism or disability like Temple Grandin could overcome her limitations and eventually become successful. The movie clearly emphasized that the support, help, understanding, respect and acceptance of people are some of the vital factors that influence the persons with autism to be optimistic in order to have a positive outlook in life.
I am absolutely sure that you need to be courageous to go to the sex therapist: You have to share your intimate problems with an unfamiliar person and expose your soul before your partner and another person.

The memoir has a linear structure, going chronologically through her life. I felt like I was definitely more interested in her story as it went farther along, however there was never a spot where I wanted to stop reading. Her teenage years and on were quite gripping, seeing her coming into her own as a young woman while trying to keep the family together emotionally and economically. I cringed at times, and at others I was truly inspired by her unconditional love for her family even when they treated her so poorly. As the reader you can really see the strength she gained as a child and it inspires.

If I had to explain James’ mother I would use this quote to do so. His mother was abused, tormented, and wounded by her past life, but her marriage uplifted her. The loss of her husband added to Ruth’s timeline but her timeline ends with her children’s success. This success was due to Ruth’s strong character and her non trivial life.
