Her condition was getting worse by the passing with but she didn’t mention it to her husband because according to him it’s just in her head. “I cry at nothing and cry most of the time.
(MIP-1) Najmah has lost her voice and control over her life due to the traumatization after witnessing death of her mother and little brother.

The author notes that she “... did not notice my father’s silence…,” and “... did not notice my mother’s absence…” Then, later on that night, we hear Lizabeth’s mother and father have a conversation in another room whilst laying down on her (and her brother’s) makeshift bed. After hearing her father woes, her father started crying “loudly and painfully, and cried helplessly and hopelessly into the dark night.” (Marigolds 42) This event combined with her mother’s absence from her life and the previous affair from earlier that day made Lizabeth feel extremely alone and, with Joey struggling to catch up, floored it to Miss Lottie’s house. When Lizabeth got to Miss Lottie’s house, she furiously ripped and tore marigolds from the patch, decimating all the beautiful flowers that were there! What drove her to do this? Well as the story states, Lizabeth had gone mad due to “...all the smoldering emotions of that summer swelled in me and burst- the great need for my mother who was never there, the hopelessness of our poverty and degradation, the bewilderment of being neither child nor woman and yet both at once, the fear unleashed by my father’s
Aisha is not used to being unable to solve a problem, so when this happens she shuts down. She stops getting good grades, does not take care of her physical appearance and even skips her interview at Barnard. “Her hair looks greasy; she hasn’t even bothered to press coconut oil into her scalp or run her fingers through the kinks. She keeps wearing that stupid Destiny’s Child t-shirt, and when no one is home, she sneaks into the living room and watches soaps on TV.” (Budhos 93). Aisha feels there is no purpose in trying anymore.
“Hi new girl, we don’t like you. You seem too afraid of everything, you never talk and your hair's a mess.” Skye said. The two girls kept insulting and talking horribly to her. Haley had no idea what to do, she was too timid to talk. She felt like there was a hurricane in her mind, she really wanted for people to like her but she was to insecure to even speak.
(P.134) When the mother attempts to learn some English, he doesn’t support her, he shows his dominance by telling her "its best if I take care of the English" and "the average women cant speak English". (Page 129) He also does not let her out of the house, Mami is very bored and depressed, she cleaned everything about 10 times and made elaborate lunches for the family on page 127. She begged the father for some company and for him to bring friends over because she needed to talk to someone new. He replied with "None of you are ready for guests". (P.143) Only after the mother explains how much she cleaned and how put together the boys are does he consider it.
In the second paragraph of the story the author states that she is suffering because she doesn't have the things she wants by saying, “She suffered endlessly, feeling herself born for every delicacy and luxury. She suffered from the poorness of her house, from its mean walls, worn chairs, and ugly curtains.” (Guy de Maupassant 2) “She had no clothes, no jewels, nothing. And these were the only things she loved;” (Guy de Maupassant 2) The author included this to let the readers know what kind of “Poverty” Matilde was living in. Mathilde doesn't seem to love her husband as much. He thinks different about her.
This is very prominent when in the beginning of the novel Eugene throws the missal across the room, furious at Jaja’s disobedience, and breaks Mama’s figurines. Kambili says: “I meant to say I am sorry Papa broke your figurines, but the words that came out were, ‘I’m sorry your figurines broke Mama’” (Adichie, Purple Hibiscus,10). By doing this Kambili avoids implicating her father in his act of violence, but Kambili is still able to raise the subject of her father’s abusive behaviour. Eugene’s abuse not only cripples his family members’ bodies, but it also controls their tongues, yet Kambili masks the brutality of her father’s abuse with her words and deploys indirect, euphemistic tactics to describe

“ I’m a coward and I’ve faced it, and I’ve learned to accept it.” Ginny said to herself (chapter 2).

It seems like everybody in the world but me has somebody who cares about them.” Ginny was talking with herself (chapter 6). This quotation proves that Ginny is feeling so lonely and that she got no one to take care of her, and share her feelings with anyone.
