Later in the story she fights with Laurie on the grounds that at this point in her life, she is independent and feels as if she doesn’t need or want love whatsoever. As the two fight, she says, “I don’t [drive men crazy for fun]. I never wanted to make you care for me so, and I went away to keep you from it if I could” (Alcott 447). This is her mentality for quite a few years until she loses Beth and realizes she is lonely until being reunited with Mr. Bhaer and falling for him. Her lack of the need for love relates to her Person vs. Society conflict of being very boyish when she is supposed to be a proper young lady.

When Naomi examines her life and interprets the unanswered questions about her mother she never really comes to a conclusion about her true feelings. She still feels uneasy and the absence of her mother affected her more than she leads her other family members to believe. Grief is a huge theme in this novel and Naomi experiences it in a different way because of the unknowing. She never knew what her family thought of the situation because it was never discussed in detail with her and therefore she never knew how to deal with her emotions or even to express her emotions. The haunting silence of her past was later examined in her present only to find that Naomi was often in the dark when it came to knowing about the troubles going on around her, and now being in the light of the situation she realized the true pain of the situation she was
Consequently, she feels safe disclosing her sexual orientation. However, the same can’t be said in regard to her family. Her mother discovered her non-binary SO and SI and was furiously criticized, with words like disgusting and unacceptable thrown her way.

At the time this sort of attitude seemed normal to me, “If the other kids had problems with their parents then something must be wrong with my mom too”, this flawed mindset is what drove me to isolate myself from my mother. My mother knew that I wasn’t content with them, she always disapproved my friends and felt as if they were taking advantage of me. Instead of listening to my mothers ' advice I defended the misguided actions of my friends.
The reasoning behind her negative approach to live is not due to her economic problems, which seems to be the main concern for some characters such as her husband, but rather the fact that she cannot return Medvendenko’s love; “Your love touches me, but I can’t return it. That’s all.” (Chekov, 106) What Masha does not understand that is the fact that this unrequited passion that medvedenko expresses is not towards her but his passion for money and material goods. Masha’s lack of sympathy remains after the birth of her child. Her reluctant attitude towards Medvedenko is also seen towards their child. While visiting Sorin in is house Medvedenko imploringly asks Masha to leave with him as their child has been left alone to which she replies “Nonesense.
The poet does not feel any love or attachment towards the child. He/she is as inanimate to her as the “elements” around her and this is why she places the child amongst elements and not with herself. The child is still not a reality for the mother; therefore, child and mother are still on opposite spectrum. The mother is not able to communicate or connect to the child she has given birth to.
