You not the only one who got wants and needs. But I held onto you, Troy” (Wilson, 71). Today, it is less uncommon for people to face their problems in family life head on, and not just avoid uncomfortable topics like divorce when it isn’t working out in benefit for everyone involved. In Fences, Rose and Tony both feel stuck within their relationship, perhaps bored. Troy, although he wishes he weren’t, is raising his sons similarly to how his father raised him.
Ernest Hemmingway’s Soldier’s Home tells the story of a young man named Harold Krebs’ experiences after returning home from World War 1. He struggles to readjust to civilian life, he wants things to be easy but he cannot connect with anything emotionally. Krebs can’t bring himself to tell the truth about what he went through; even if he could, no one wants to hear it anymore. He came back from the war later than other soldiers who have already adapted to post-war life, so not only is he an outsider from his community, he is an outsider amongst the only people he has with shared life experiences. As a result of this, he becomes detached and emotionally numb to cope with his inability to handle what his life has become.

We have an identity, but we all have different factors that play into our lives, like family, education, and sometimes people have no identity.

After a brutal battle, Paul is sent home on leave. His father is proud of him and encourages Paul to talk about his experiences. Unaware of Paul’s emotions and feelings, he creates an uncomfortable environment for his son, and Paul finds it difficult to talk to his own father about the horrors of war. He finds he is not himself at home, and “there is a veil between” him and his family (Remarque 160). There is a disconnect because he feels as though he cannot communicate to his father and his family because they truly do not understand him.
People often cannot feel confident in who they are unless they know their past.

If Wright truly hungers for family, he would’ve accepted Bess’ feelings. What does Wright desire then?
This story is about understanding that not being the same people your parents are is okay because you are special in your own way.

Huckleberry Finn came from a very peculiar background. He never truly found a place that was his home, but he had lived in many different places. He was not given a formal education prior to living with the widow, but he was not as unintelligent as everyone suspected. As he
The loss of his father was the major life event that has impacted negatively his life. H.G never received treatment for his ADHD and possible learning disability. As a result of his life stressors he was not able to continue a healthy development. One can say that Maslow’s pyramid is from its very base lacking all the foundations in the case of H.G. “His physiological needs were met at a very basic level; the same could be said about his sense of safety and belonging as well as his esteem needs.” (Mandich, 2015, p. 42).

As they made their way back to the garrison - to home – there wasn 't much chatter. There was a quiet companionship during their homeward journey but Porthos wasn 't able to enjoy it. He thought of how his brothers must be ashamed of him. They took him back with open arms, as he knew they would, but he felt that by taking off the fleur-de-lys they all wore so proudly, he had essentially abandoned them. As he grew up, Porthos told himself he didn 't need to know his father 's identity.
