That is the problem; society does not care about anyone except themselves. They are so busy keeping their own lives together they do not notice the outsiders whose lives are quickly falling apart. When they do acknowledge it, though, they are quick to order the failing person a simple solution and continue with their lives, but a simple solution is not what people need. Those whose lives are failing need someone who will help them, support them, and walk with them through the recovery process. Unfortunately, many do not receive
From many experiences, I have learned that it’s ok to not be with the crowd since the crowd isn’t always the best option. Although, many times I feel isolated and as if no one will catch me if I fall. This relates to some people in the book Al Capone Does My Shirts written by Gennifer Choldenko. Mrs. Flanagan has problems throughout the whole story. For example, on pages 192-194 , it seems that she feels isolated from her family when Moose is trying to get her to accept the facts that Natalie isn’t a child anymore.
In “Why No One Helps in a Crisis”, John Darley and Bibb Latane assert that no one helps in a crisis because they are unperceptive, slow to recognize a crisis and diffused of responsibility when others are present in a crisis. Firstly, Darley and Latane explain that people do not help in a crisis because they are unperceptive of their surroundings. People tend to not pay attention to what is happening around them and thus might not be aware that a crisis has occurred. Darley and Latane used the example of a staged crisis whereby smoke was released into the waiting area through a vent and most of the subjects were unaware of the situation they were in until the area became too smoky, causing them discomfort. Hence, this shows that people do not

Precious did not feel safe anywhere. She was always on guard. This defense mechanism manifested itself as Precious’s unwillingness to allow anyone to get to know her.

They could not determine which were their enemy and which were not. This made the situation even more unclear. These factors of uncertainty, as well as others, cause the soldiers to succumb more heavily to obedience to malevolent authority. Since the soldiers were so young and fresh, they had relatively no experience that they could rely on to make the right decisions. They were never
His mother is no longer able to mentally function as she never interacts with Grendel, and the humans he interacts with fear him, so he gets no real interaction from anyone. Consequently, Grendel describes himself as only existing and everything else is just imagination. Isolation takes a toll on the mentally of most people, so it isn’t illogical to assume that Grendel is breaking down from his seclusion. He is arguing with himself over his own thoughts as shown on page 3 of the novel: “Not, of course, that I fool myself with thoughts that I'm more noble. Pointless, ridiculous monster crouched in the shadows, stinking of dead men, murdered children, martyred cows.
Carver 's alcoholics lack even the eloquence of O 'Neill 's fog people. They are often crude and utterly lacking in the powers of introspection. They cannot express what they mean but they want to tell stories. Very often they quite literally have nothing to do: they are out of work or about to be fired.

She wants affection and love. She wants these things from the one person she can’t have it from, and this was caused by not getting the love and attention she deserved to get at home growing up. It is hard growing up with no parents and family to fall back on. Although many of us don’t realize it, not all of us have the perfect family life.
