For my brother I'm sure it was the same, he has grown as well. My emotions were bad at the time, but as I got older the more understanding it was. Change is something most people have to go through, but I needed it. Making new friends was the hardest part about the move. Being social is not my calling but this should be easy for others.
In “The Rich Brother” by Tobias Wolff, Pete and Donald were two brothers that lived life on different ends of a spectrum. Pete became more successful than his younger brother, Donald while Donald was the brother who didn't quite have his life together and was just living it day by day.

In the book, Outsiders, I noticed the most character development in Ponyboy Curtis. Although he didn’t realize many things until the end of the book, I think once everything registered within himself, he took everything that had happened to him in the past couple weeks as a lesson. One thing that Ponyboy finally grasped was that his oldest brother Darry actually cared for him. At first Ponyboy had always thought that Darry didn’t like him and that Darry would rather him be gone. However, after his friends repeatedly reassured Ponyboy that his older brother had been hard on him because he really loved and cared about him, Ponyboy slowly started to realize that, even though the two still fought a bit.
We can see that she feels isolated and stuck at home. She has not only lost her job, with which came her passion for helping people in her field of expertise, but she is also trapped within her house and she feels unmotivated and that her lifestyle is “meaningless in itself”.
