To briefly summarize, in portraying these insecurities, the author wants to highlight the need to identify one's faults, so then they can work on rectifying them to become a better person, just as we see Holden do at the end of the novel. He wants to emphasize that becoming familiar with the struggles of the adult world isn't all bad, as we can prepare ourselves and adjust to the situation, before it becomes too much to handle. Lastly, he wants to pin point that we should not label the whole world based on a couple of people, but instead we have to broaden our horizons. To begin, the protagonist Holden Caulfield has an immensely difficult time getting over his brother's death and thus it is portrayed that he doesn’t possess the ability of letting go of the past and concentrating on the future. He instead harbors the anger, sadness and guilt of his brother's death inside him for so many years, causing him to battle with himself and blame himself for what happened.
In the first novel The Glass Castle, the father, Rex Walls is the one who creates the drama in his family. He is a negative influence for the children and his actions are unacceptable and because of his action are what creates the drama. For exam-ple at one point in the novel Rex tries to run Rose over with his car while she is pregnant and his kids witness everything, Jeanette states, “We shot forward toward Mom, who screamed and jumped out of the way. Dad turned around and went for her again” (Walls 43). Since Rex is not being sensible with the situation, and is acting poorly it creates a dysfunction in the family be-cause everyone is constantly fighting.
The conflict’s effect on the story also goes hand in hand with the story’s theme. The main conflict of the story is the battle between Rainsford and Zaroff and this conflict underscores the theme by creating an ominous atmosphere, having exciting action, and by maintaining philosophical dilemmas that support the theme of the ethical dillema that is the Hunter and the Hunted. The clash between Rainsford and his many foes creates an ominous atmosphere for the reader that persists throughout the story. Between Zaroff’s demented game and Rainsford’s own terror the reader becomes hooked and is always wondering what will happen next. This creates an ominous atmosphere where the reader has no idea what to expect.
While Orwell was explaining that writers will gain an emotional attitude and might not be able to escape his emotions when writing, he said something very interesting. “It is his job, no doubt, to discipline his temperament and avoid getting stuck at some immature stage, in some perverse mood: but if he escapes from his early influences altogether; he will have killed his impulse to write.” This sentence shows metaphor and cumulative sentences altogether. It shows metaphor because he is talking about getting stuck at a specific stage but he is no literally talking about getting stuck somewhere, physically. Cumulative sentence is also shown here because he is combining both sentences together to prove a point by using a
But when a crush goes wrong, his relationship with Sucker went south when Pete lashed out at Sucker and left and open wound. After reading the short story “Sucker” and discussing with my group, I believe that in life, having maturity is more helpful in life than innocence. I believe this because maturity gives you the knowledge to understand more about what a person may be going through or what could be happening, and how to responsibly take care of a situation and think clearly. I believe that maturity

Watching The Trouble with Evan was very difficult. There were so many things this family could have done to make things better, but every time they tried they just kept falling into their own ways. Insecure disorganized attachment was quite apparent between him and both of his parents. His parents had the tendency to verbally abuse him quite a bit, yelling things that most people would never imagine yelling at their child. Other times it seemed the mother would be frightened of Evan and his behavior.
Summary of Carl Rogers Empathy Video In Carl Rogers’s empathy video, he describes the need for not just repeating what a patient or individual says, but truly trying to view their life through their eyes. In doing this you gain a much deeper understanding of the person. You are able to communicate more accurately with them, and also form a stronger bond of trust with the individual. Having empathy for the person can cause them to feel more accepted, and in turn help them accept themselves. This can lead to inner discoveries that the person has been unwilling or unable to confront, because they have been programmed from childhood on that those feelings are not right and to ignore or bury them.
You have to learn how your actions will influence you throughout the rest of your life. Odysseus soon learned that his actions and decisions were going to decide his fate so instead of making his decisions alone he asks for help and guidance from people.
