Depression is an active theme in J.D. Salinger’s “The Catcher in the Rye.” Holden does not properly treat his depression because he ignores help, abuses substances, and bottles up his emotions. Before reading “The Catcher in the Rye,” I believed that depression is completely not a choice, but after I realized that although it isn’t a choice, there are still ways of treating depression. Holden refuses to accept help from other people. As soon as I was inside, I couldn 't think of anybody to call up.
Nobody sees my daily struggle with this condition that has plagued me for years but never knew what it was.. Nobody watches me as I cry daily, body in pain, wishing that I was somebody else and that this condition would end. Because let’s face it, many of us hate something about ourselves and we all strive for perfection. To the people
Once in my life, I got to be an outsider. I wandered around for friends. I want to be happy with my friend, but no one wanted to play with me. I tried many ways to shows other that I can be a good friend, but no one knows it. My friend don't understand me, they don't understand why I act out like that, they don't even tried to understand it.
I tried my best to make it seem like I was untroubled or cheery. The friends I had for such a long time started to realize that I was unwanted, put down, and laughed at so they started keeping their distance from me until I completely lost them; they did not want to be seen with me, I was an embarassment to them, a burden. That was when I started changing; I couldn't eat because I was so dissapointed in myself, I couldn't have a single bite because I felt so disgusting. I spent so much time looking into a mirror trying to figure out what was wrong with me and why people hated me so much. I didn't sleep thinking about how I was going to get through the next day, the stress piled up and I decided to take it out on me by self harm.
You cannot take away somebody’s family and beliefs. It is in humane and extremely sad. Many times through out the book I would stop and put myself in these students’ shoes. And every time I would get frustrated because I just can’t imagine this happening to myself. The sad part is that this kind of treatment still happens to people to this
I don 't know if she knew how much that affected me, but because of those few words I was so self-conscious I never cut my hair short, or let anyone see my scars even if they asked. I shouldn´t have to feel ashamed of something that saved my life, but because it made me different I was bullied by several people I thought were my friends. ¨If we could´nt feel hate how would we know what love is¨, this is a quote I found interesting, it made me wonder what it would be like if there was only love, most of our worlds history would change because lets face it almost all of our history is war and
Collette O’Connell Writing and rhetoric 1 Collaborative manifesto reflection I will be the very first to admit that I absolutely despise group work. This is because I’m introverted and very stubborn, and together thise two qualities makes me extremely difficult to work with. I have a hard time listening to other people’s intentions when it comes to projects which often creates an unpleasant atmosphere. I also don’t compromise easily and often when I don’t get my way back out of a project or put forth as little effort as possible. It is for these reasons that group work has never really been something I enjoyed doing.
This might sound boring, but for me, it was fun as hell and it allowed me to enjoy life like I always have. My name is Jack Heartly and I 'm a youtube gamer that managed to survive being an orphan by uploading videos. Ever since I was born I have had people pitying me every step of the way. For the first few years of my life I didn 't understand, but then again I didn 't understand a lot of things until I was about 7. At the age of 7, I found out why people had been pitying me this whole time by listening to the conversation between some of the nuns working at the orphanage.
Moreover, her lonely life is also one of the factors causing madness, whenever she wants to meet her families and friends, her husband repeatedly rejected her requests: “It is so discouraging not to have any advice and companionship about my work. […] to let me have those stimulating people about now.” (Gilman, 649) She was asked not to have any companions, except the yellow wallpaper. Even a normal person can’t live in such an unbearable environment for a long time, not to mention the narrator whose mental is devastated. However, these factors caused significant changes in narrator’s
I have always hated writing about myself, and I always dreaded assignments in school where I had to describe myself. I always wanted to avoid doing these assignments because I did not want to sound narcissistic, or self-absorbed. I dislike people like that now, because I used to be one of those people. It took many lessons learned before I humbled myself; I am still learning to humble myself today with recent experiences I have had. Although I hate to write about myself, I have always liked to reflect on myself.
Niall 's POV I wanted to go to the dance but I would be miserable there. After I told everyone that I had a deep secrect hatred for them and that my sister was Hope...well I guess it 's not a secret anymore but everyone hates me. I 'm glad I don 't have to be fake anymore. I really did hate them. They had fake problems and fake personalities it was all a big head ache.
I figured as long as people knew what I was talking about, why would it matter how pronounced certain words? The effect did eventually start to wear on me, though, and after a couple months of speech therapy, I received a certificate stating that I successfully completed my sessions, smiley face stickers and all. However, that didn’t last long. Only a couple weeks later, I quickly forgot how to properly enunciate, and my speech patterns were just like before. Despite my teacher’s annoyance, I really didn’t mind this at all, and the rest of the world around me didn’t seem to care either.
