The Death of a loved one is painful and destructive; however, there's healthy ways to rebuild yourself after that loss. Holden, the protagonist of The Catcher In The Rye, and his family lost Allie and they all showed signs of suffering from the loss since they didn’t find helpful ways to make peace with Allie’s death. Holden’s father and mother both displayed self destructive patterns after losing Allie. The most extreme case is Holden, who lives by the notion that the world is cruel and is made for suffering rather than living. Holden’s family is scattered apart, which makes it harder for them to heal.
Jeffery, however, gave up once he found that his master would not purchase Dorcas due to the fact that she was being sold alongside four other family members.

In a letter to his brother, McCandless writes, “I know that I could not bear the routine and humdrum of the life that you are forced to lead. I don’t think I could ever settle down.

This means that McCandless would rather live an exciting life and would hate to live a normal one.
Doodle’s disabilities affected him from birth so he was not treated equal and his brother wanted him to learn the things he should already know. What prompted Doodle’s brother to help him was embarrassment which over came all of his feelings. Being different was hard for Doodle but at times it was harder for his brother to put up with because, as the narrator states, “Doodle was my brother and he was going to cling to me forever, no matter what I did.”(Hurts 159). Unfortunately Doodle was told he would never live and because of that he was never taught anything as a child. It would take Doodle a long time to learn everything.
Elie had known that if the latter slept, he would never wake up. However, Elie’s father was obstinate, begging to rest because he was so unbearably weak. The one-sided quarrel caused Elie to admit, “I knew that I was no longer arguing with him but with Death itself, with Death that he had already chosen” (105). Elie had previously demonstrated the strength to fight for his life, but his father didn’t possess that same strength. He sought release from his

It can take a radical reboot to get past yesterday. Here how… It’s the shadow cast by the pain in your past—the parent who wasn’t there, the ex who betrayed , the boss who humiliated you or perhaps you’re stuck in place by the unhappy residue of your own bad choices”.

Euthanasia is the practice of painlessly ending a person or animal’s life because they are suffering and cannot be cured. It is a humane option compared to being forced to live out the rest of your life living off a machine and in great pain.
