Today, people all over the world feel like they have to act like someone they are not in order for them to be accepted by their peers. We all are guilty of repressing certain parts of ourselves because we are too afraid of how society will react and judge us for being our own person. As Stevenson has shown throughout his story, Dr Jekyll had been living this way his entire life. He repeatedly experiences all of these wants and desires but decides not act on them because of his worries of how he will be perceived by the community. Therefore, Stevenson conveys the message that it's easy for people to get into the bad habit of not being their selves to the extent where they could turn into an entirely different person that they will never be able to

Just like us, he doesn’t want to be different from others that is why he kept his ability to see beyond a secret and just like us, he also wants to remember the memories.

However, Ivan Ilyich spends a long time trying to accept his family and the misfortune he has encountered, and his death is not as meaningful as it is supposed to be because his family shows him little care about him even after he passed away. Even though the realities Ilyich and Loman has experienced are similar, the love and support from family eventually makes their death have different meaning. While Loman’s suicide is a release for both his family and him, Ilyich’s death is nothing special but the end of his own

Trapped by the word “we” , while he knew the word “I” . He now is an individual while the others are forever going to be stuck being in a group with his brothers not knowing of himself and they will never feel the feeling of being set free.

After the D.B.’s departure, he started to trust people less and to be opened to them. Holden got depressed and mentally unstable, because of Allie’s death. And Phoebe was the one who filled his life with sense, and who supported him. She was like his “catcher in the rye”: convinced him to refuse the thoughtless action of leaving the town, that could ruin his future life.

Throughout their lives, individuals tend to act a certain way to ensure their morals will be carried on, even when they are gone.
This is the way they are born and if they have a different skin colour, there is nothing they cannot do anything about it. Therefore, people should be accepted just the way they are. Of course, in an imperfect world, people are not allowed to speak up and they are all the same because the government controls whatever they do. They do whatever the government asks them to do. Although, government uses its people to get others believe in specific
