There are often fights. Wright has to defend himself countless times against his invidious elders’ unfair judgement and inability to control their anger. This creates a violent environment for him in his formative years. One would assume, if nurture influences a person more, that Wright would turn out to be a violent person. But when faced with the choice to fight for money, he states, “I don’t want to fight...I’m no dog or rooster”(Wright 240).
I shook the branch and made it fall, I myself cannot truly tell whether or not I meant to shake that branch but I do regret it. I was in a competition with Finny in my own mind, but that was no reason to ruin him. I was always trying to beat him and that caused such a rage inside me that will never compare to anything because I wanted nothing more than to be him. He was almost perfect in every way and I was not, that never sat well with me. Things changed once he fell, he was dependent on me, and he needed me.
The struggle pushed him to be creative and think outside of the box, something that aided and distinguished him throughout all of his life. Winston Churchill’s childhood revolving around the neglect from his father prepared him to handle certain situations as a leader because he showed to be eager to be in power, to be an overachiever, and to be a charismatic leader. Churchill could never satisfy his father as a child. He lived constantly trying to please the figure he adored who neglected him so much. He became powerless.
Okonkwo was a damaged man who for fear of being seen to resemble any aspect of his father lived in anger; something Unoka seldom showed. This damage carried through into his emotional ties like his wives and children and frequently beat his family to show masculinity. “Okonkwo knew she was not speaking the truth… And when she returned he beat her heavily. In his anger he had forgotten that it was the Week of Peace… But Okonkwo was not the man to stop beating somebody half-way through, not even for fear of a goddess.” (Achebe 29-30). Even besides the frequent beatings because although wrong, were normalized in Umuofia, Okonkwo had irreparable anger issues that caused him to lash out at anyone who crossed him in an
That was what he wanted. For somebody to tell him ‘No’. To have somebody lay down the law, set the limits, give him something solid to stand on.” (Hinton 170) Nobody ever punished Bob for anything he did. Because of this, Bob made his goal to push his parents’ boundaries, to finally get them angry at him and not just blame themselves. This is what led to him becoming an alcoholic, which in turn made him seem like a violent douche.
From the moment we are born, most if not all parents truly want the best for their kids. Some have ways of guiding us through life in manners which seem too harsh meanwhile others can easily pour out their love. As a kid continues to grow, certain influences and factors are constantly altering their viewpoints, beliefs, ethics, morals and values. This motif is seen in Chinua Achebe’s novel, Things Fall Apart, with Okonkwo, the protagonist character having a tight clamp around his son, Nwoye. Nwoye is a deeply troubled lad –not understanding certain aspects of his culture, constantly trying to satisfy his father, internally baffling with his identity and who is to become.
I had come up against something that I wasn’t good at, and it angered me. Everyday after practice for the next week or two was no different. I couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t getting better and what the point of all this suffering was. One night after an especially hard workout I had a talk with my dad, who was an exceptional baseball player in his day. I asked him what I need to do to get better.
And when he stands up by disobeying, he is faced with punishments. Another way Cory’s possession of courage is shown is when he is acceptant of punishments that are directed to him. Troy reached the peak when his son didn’t quit so he never signed the papers allowing Cory to scout out and he also spoke to the coach. This is sort of a form of punishment because he took away something Cory was looking forward to, something he really wanted to do and that thing was then stripped from him making him miserable. On the inside, Cory must have felt anger, and betrayal, but he also would have felt accepting of the decision his father made, because his father was looking after him.
Orlick’s constant animosity and hunger for revenge has only filled him up with negative emotions for several years, making him unhappy and unable to enjoy life. Pip was also injured in the process demonstrating how revenge harms the victim and the seeker. In the end, Orlick never fulfilled his revenge by trying to kill Pip. Instead, Pip asked, “‘Is it Pumblechook’s house that has been broken into, then?’‘That’s it, Pip,’ said Joe…‘But he knowed Orlick, and Orlick’s in the county jail’”(497). With his overflowing resentment for Pip, he decides to make a premature decision to break into Pumblechook’s house.
