I married my wife 8 years ago and I’ve never felt romantically attracted to her. We married out of convenience and it has truly been a nightmare.

The book did an excellent job of really covering the culture of Native Americans. While growing up my parents did an excellent job of raising my sister and I. I never really understood that there was any difference between being Caucasian and Native American until moving to Rapid City. Personally, I believe it was not until my mid-twenties that I began to realize that people felt differently. Since I began my nursing career I have been “fired” as a nurse by many families, most of those families being Native American. The excuses vary from “to intense, to strict, and not giving them what they require.” Since maturing past the
(Ahmadzai and Emal 1) When Layla's parent died with her husband she was sentenced or forced to make a promise to spend two years of isolation and solitude mourning, she compromised with the death of a broken heart. Which as previously mentioned she possibly killed the well being of herself through destructive emotions. Shortly after, Munjan died where to next to her. Both motives of death were caused by the irrational feeling of love, of each other.

Your work changed my view of self by realizing that I don’t have a bad life. Growing up, my parents would always fight, drank a lot, my dad was rarely home, my mom was unhappy, and I never really felt like I had an actual family. I witnessed a lot of bad things that happened between my parents when they fought and is something I’d never wish upon anyone. My parents got divorced when i was 9, which I took very hard because I had to live with my mom by court and I missed my dad a lot. I thought having divorced parents was hard but after reading A Child Called “It”, I was appreciative of my childhood because I wasn’t abused, wasn’t treated badly by my mom, and was loved by both of my parents.

One experience that was difficult for me was learning the truth about my mother and finally understanding that I could not save her. It all started in my sophomore year when my mother came to Tennessee. My mother was an alcoholic and I thought I could save her by finding her a job and keeping a close eye on her. Three days into her new job as a waitress at a Mexican restaurant, which I got for her because she was bilingual, I received a phone call from a police officer telling me my mother was intoxicated in front of a liquor store. My grandmother and I went to pick her up and immediately she started to blame the owner of the restaurant, calling him a pig and telling me lies.
