Because of this, he decides to burn all of Martha’s letters and photos in guilt; in the end, choosing his duty over his undying love. “He felt shame. He hated himself. He had loved Martha more than his men, and as a consequence Lavender was now dead, and this was something he would have to carry like a stone in his stomach for the rest of the war“ (16). The short and concise sentence structure of the “He felt shame.
This begins to weaken him both individually and emotionally, and it eventually takes a toll on him. Within Ender, Card shows that isolation and loneliness can destroy an individual through his collapse and his change in personality. After the grueling training and numerous battles that the government puts Ender through, along with all of the isolation and loneliness that he endures, he collapses in the processes both during and after the burdens were put onto him. The first major event that showed Ender enduring some troubles was when he woke up in the middle of the night and found that “there was blood” on his bed, and he had been “gnawing on his own fist” (285) in the middle of the night, in his sleep. This revealed to the reader that the strong and powerful Ender might be beginning to crack and show a
I might have done my best, but there could be someone who has done even better than me. This stresses me because I can’t do any better than my best. That is my limit. I do not know what would happen in my life after this year and the scary part is that I do not have a say in the matter. We all have dreams and wishes but what happens when you don’t accomplish what you have been working for your whole life?
Nouwen blames this hopelessness that individuals feel in this life to a fear of death, a fear of life, and what he calls “the impersonal milieu”. Nouwen uses the story of a man who has fallen ill to describe the impersonal milieu: Suddenly this tough man who had always maintained his own independence through hard manual labor found himself the passive victim of many people and operations that were totally alien to him… An anonymous group of “they” people had taken over (60). As simple as it sounds, personal concern is the antidote that Nouwen provides for the impersonal milieu. It has amazed me at times in my ministry that the most significant things are often the simple gestures of asking “how are you?” “What’s going on with you?” “What’s wrong?” and then genuinely offering myself to listen to the response. This is a day to day act of giving ourselves for others.
It becomes essential to Victor’s psyche, urging him to run away from it, as he has been running away from his inner desires his entire life. Victor becomes physically ill multiple times, frequently because of the overwhelming guilt, before giving life to the creature, “My limbs now tremble and my eyes swim with the remembrance; […] I seemed to have lost all soul or sensation but for this one pursuit,” and afterwards, “For this I had deprived myself of rest and health […] but now that I had finished, the beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and disgust filled my heart.” Consequently, he implodes and falls ill, proving his inability to accept responsibility, and flees. Thus is presented another element of Gothic and Romantic literature, that of the power of nature on the characters. Victor, and the monster, both seek solace through nature. Although pathetic fallacy is shown rather sparsely, more vivid examples of nature making an impact on the characters are presented when Victor tries to find consolation after the murder of his brother, William, and when Justine is accused and executed for murder, unfairly, “These sublime and magnificent scenes afforded me the greatest consolation that I was capable of receiving.” Similarly, when the monster takes over the role of the narrator, he mentions
Love is almost always behind anger.”. Being loved arouses anxiety, because it threatens long-standing psychological defenses formed early in life in relation to emotional pain and rejection, therefore leaving a person feeling more vulnerable.’’ In this story the author Robert Firestone is making intelligible remarks on how terrible love is and how worse is right alongside with it.’’ Being loved arouses sadness and painful feelings..’’ love awakes a kind of poignant sadness that many people struggle to not feel, That will always be with them no matter what.

Like even before you realize what has happened, you know that it’s tragic, sad. Something stirs deep within me. I shut my eyes, desperately wishing I could go back to sleep forever. My heart feels heavy, I don’t yet know why. There is this thing about human hearts; they always know when you ought to feel bad, even if you don’t know.
Should I follow my dreams, or go according to my parents’ dreams for me? This question always confuses me about my future job. We can never deny our parents’ decision and break their heart. But there is always one more thing going on in the secret part our mind, what if I chose my dreams instead of my parents’ dreams. I strongly agree that the parents always want the best for their children, but if kids are not interested in what their parents’ want them to do then the child will never be happy or involved in that decision, it will be always a burden on the child.
