Victor also allows Justine to die for the murder of his younger brother because he’s afraid of what people will think. “My tale was not one to announce publicly; it’s astounding horror would be looked upon as madness by the vulgar”(83).

Lastly, the monster says he will leave Victor and his family alone if Victor makes him a female companion, but he can’t even do that. “I thought with a sensation of madness on my promise of creating another like to him, and trembling with passion, tore to pieces the thing on which I was engaged”(180).
It never crossed my mind that someone would want to end his or her life. I never would have guessed, out of all the people I know, or who was sad in his or her life, or hated his or her life, that Jaime was one of those people. He always appeared happy, but he was crying on the inside. One never knows when someone is truly hurting or wants to end his or her own life. I had no idea Jaime felt the way he did.

Instead of repairing the wounds and flesh he moves on like nothing happened the entire book until we find him in the psychiatric hospital as an entire breakdown.
Most of the adults Dean knew growing up had never experienced their teenage years. They were too busy fighting the War; but because they did not died in battle, they found neither glory nor redemption in living. They had sacrificed their youth and they were angry about it. Even worse for most teens, their fathers viewed their children as burdens—punishment for not dying in the war. The War had taken their teen years.

Rathband was continuously exposed to and in direct line of coming into contact with offenders and always held the possibility of being victimised; very little can be said in the precipitation of Rathband’s initial incident with Moat which blinded him, his suicide attempt, while being solely precipitated by himself, also was a slow degradation from coping to his demise. By turning down the options for private therapy and help from the Northumberland Police, Rathband obviously failed to recover from his initial incident with was further exacerbated by the dissolution of his marriage, thus taking away the higher chance for him to live as close to a normal life as a victim of an offense. Tragic as Rathband’s story may be, he still failed to do his part to try and recover from his victimisation as well as created further reasoning for him to not be able to cope such as having the numerous affairs, making suicide threats to his latest mistress and making threatening phone calls

Today he carries another photo of her, a recent one, in his
The loss of his father was the major life event that has impacted negatively his life. H.G never received treatment for his ADHD and possible learning disability. As a result of his life stressors he was not able to continue a healthy development. One can say that Maslow’s pyramid is from its very base lacking all the foundations in the case of H.G. “His physiological needs were met at a very basic level; the same could be said about his sense of safety and belonging as well as his esteem needs.” (Mandich, 2015, p. 42).
Jonah is in the middle and he seems almost depressed because he does not have any emotion over anything. All of those traits could have been easily passed down through the generations. Even though we do not know for sure their grandfather had these traits but it is safe to say he must have had some aggression and depression after the war. However he had his faith to keep him strong and work through it. Even though not all of those plays can prove the theory that younger generations can inherit trauma and depression.
