My friend don't understand me, they don't understand why I act out like that, they don't even tried to understand it. Once I think why I have no friends, I find out, I have to change and improve myself. Before, I wandering for friends, but after I change myself, I become an insider. I got friends, but even I have friends, I could see some outsider with no friend. The insiders act kind to the outsider, only when they are face to face.
However, true Christianity comes with knowing that we are and never will be perfect, but that God is strong in our weaknesses. Therefore, there is really no reason for the minister to be hiding behind his veil. Another example of irony in “The Minister’s Black Veil” comes with the initial reaction of the people. At first, they look at their own minister and the veil he is wearing in horror (Hawthorne 281). The community then proceeds to treat him as an outcast of society; nobody will talk to him, and everyone avoids him out of fear.
According to Ralph Ellison in the book Invisible Man, to be invisible means to be viewed by the people of society as a stereotype rather than an actual person. The narrator states, "they see only my surroundings, themselves, or figments of their imagination-indeed, everything except me" . Although the people of society have a physically real, living human being in front of them, they are still blind to the presence of that person. They are not literally blind but they project their pre-conceived notions and stereotypes of his identity onto him rather than bothering to find out his true
He at first doesn’t know Robert at all, and since Robert was blind the husband didn’t know how Robert’s life was and didn’t know his limitations or his drawbacks. The husband is narrow-minded and cannot put himself in Robert’s place. He even feels that Robert has a better connection with his wife than he does himself. Robert cannot see but can understand a person’s feelings and emotions better than the husband could. The husband was prejudice at first.

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
In his search for his grandfather’s request it has left him alone with nothing to support himself, since he had to leave his family and friends.He also refuse to have any friends because he wanted to focus on his goals in life and without any friends one is left isolated, because frankly without any friends one cannot have any moral support so that they don’t feel left out.

You’ve had a ringside seat of me on my journey to discovering, uncovering and becoming who I was purposed to be. You have had a bird 's eye view at what to do and not to do for your own journey, but most importantly I hope you have learned that the journey is not just for the one who’s living it but most importantly for those who are experiencing it. So please know that my journey is for the benefit of you and your brothers mainly. Yes, I’ve made a zillion mistakes on my journey and I can never fix them all nor do I know if I want to; but none of them matter because in the end I found victory and glory and that is the only thing I need you to remember and hold on
I was so different from my other classmates, that I wanted to adopt new culture to become “normal”. I had not appreciated what my family has gone through and how their culture was apart of my history. Lastly, when his sister said, “What’s this crap about getting dressed up”(4), demonstrates the difference his family had between the fantasy families seen on television. It shows how they were not appreciative and grateful of what they were given. Growing up, I didn’t get why I had a small
