Here is a example of the theme from the book “He barely liked his family-and by family he meant his older brother. Tom.” The conflict is that Benny and Tom do not have a good relationship and have grudges against each other. If you hold grudges against your family or do not have a good relationship with your family, you will have no one to fall back on and you will be by yourself. Another example of the theme from the book is “Sorry, Benny- I forgot. Point is, you got family of some kind, right?” This example shows that you will always have some type of family, even if you don’t know

As the story progresses, Gregor becomes aware of his waning humanity because of his lack of interaction with the other members of the family. His degradation as a human, however, began before his physical transformation, due to his ceaseless devotion to work. Informing the audience of the Samsa family’s backstory, at one point the narrator states that “They had been good times and they had never come again, at least not with the same splendour, even though Gregor had later earned so much that he was in a position to bear the costs of the whole family, and did bear them. They had even got used to it, both Gregor and the family, they took the money with gratitude and he was glad to provide it, although there was no longer much warm affection given in return” (Samsa 15). The narrator’s statement encapsulates the tragic path that Gregor took.

In the third stanza, he describes how important his partner role was in his life was. He says "He was my north, my south, my east and west." This shows that his partner was someone who provided guidance and support. Now that his partner is gone he has lost his way and his life is lacking direction. “My working week and my Sunday rest" tells us that he spent a lot of his time with him and that without him he has no longer has control in his life and he has lost purpose and reason.” Because of his death, his world is now falling apart.
He had always felt that they were a really close family and he loved his mother and father. Therefore, when they were divorced it tore him apart, he simply just could not handle it. Abagnale finally reached a point to where he had to move away from his family because he could not deal with the depression of it. After moving away Abagnale did not know what to do. What is a sixteen year old boy supposed to do in New York City, when he is all by himself?
Upon his death, a great sense of relief roams his family; a feeling that is not obtained in such situations normally. Ever since childhood, we automatically associate loyalty with family, yet little did we know that a capitalistic society and its way of thinking could get between these two terms, particularly the latter. Kafka reflects that, realistically, his odd fiction narrative can become a reality, when cornered by such society. Even Grete, the only one that took care of Gregor, seems to resent her brother after facing poverty and blames him for their current financial status. Kafka demonstrates that society's norms have the power to adjust normality, according to its desires.
Eddie is man of sacrifice, he sacrificed his time with his family, numerous job opportunity and the responsibility of raising his family. He abandoned Bonita for large chunks of their children’s lives and left Bonita to both be the main provider for the family and to singlehandedly raise the children. This leads an observer to believe that Eddie was not really a hero to all, but a father who wasn’t there, a husband who didn’t provide and a man who prioritised selfish ambitions over his family. Eddie was not a hero to everyone, particularly his wife at numerous stages of his life. Bonita was isolated from her husband as she worked late night and cared for her children.
Instead, he is talking about his family being mad at him as a result for him being “slow” while getting dressed. Since the only family which is mentioned in the text is his father, then it can be deduced that he is talking about his father being mad at him for taking a long time. This gives his father the quality of being strict although overall this stanza shows Haydn’s father in a positive
Rudy showed “blessed are the meek” towards these people. Rudy’s family were some of the people who did not believe in him. When Rudy was sitting with his family by the television, he told them that he wanted to play for his family’s favourite football team, and his whole family laughed at him. Some of the most important people in Rudy’s life were also some of the least supportive people. When a child hears that someone so important to them believe that their dream will just be a dream, it is really hard for them.
