However, his use of tough love and lack of approval towards his children creates conflict in the play, which suggests the importance of a father’s emotional role in a family. The role as a breadwinner: In Troy’s mind, he has done everything right as a father because he has provided his family with basic needs for survival: a place to live, food on the table, and clothes on their backs. His strong work ethic has made him the man he is today; but he often burns all his fuel at work and, at the expense of his family, copes with his pain by drinking. Sense of pride: As the breadwinner, Troy takes great pride in his earnings. When his oldest son, Lyons, comes around asking for ten dollars, Troy replies by saying,“ ‘I 'm just supposed to haul people 's rubbish and give my money to you cause you too lazy to work?’ ” (1, 19).
In particular Chris Mccandless should be supported for he had things happen to him that led up to the point where he wanted to go into the wild to get away from his old life and created a new one for himself to have more opportunities. Others may think he shouldn’t be supported just because he some bad flaws he had and also that he just left his sister who he actually got along with, but here are some reasons that are logical and reasonable to why Chris Mccandless should be supported. One of the reasons why readers should support Chris McCandless is because he is generous, he gave people inspiration, or felt inspired by others, and like in the book Krakauer tells us “Chris’s Father suggested the boy had probably been inspired.”(94),his way of living inspired everyone that you can live anyway you want. Not only but Chris also
If the merchant had never taught Santiago the lesson he would have returned to his home land of Tangier and purchased a new herd of sheep, instead Santiago had carried the message he received from the merchant throughout his entire journey. “He was going to miss the place and all the good things he had learned” (63). There were times when Santiago would want to return to the familiarity of his sheep, but he knew what would be ahead of him would be vastly more important. He knew that he would never get another opportunity to travel to the pyramids that held his treasure. “I can always go back to being a shepherd the boy thought...But i’ll never get another chance to go to the pyramids of Egypt”(64).
Snopes knows that Sarty is starting to break away from his ideas, but it does not scare Sarty. In William Faulkner’s “Barn Burning,” it is important that one must do what they think is right no matter what the sacrifices are even if it means sacrificing family and everything one ever knew along the way. Sarty has many thoughts that contribute to the theme of the story and the hopes of getting his father to stop his absurd methods. At one point in the story he thinks as he and his father approach their new landlord’s house, “Hit’s big as a courthouse… They are safe from him. People whose lives are a part of this peace and dignity are beyond his touch…” (Faulkner).
Willy Loman is old, old enough to retire by now, but neither of his children earn enough money to allow him to retire. He pushes through his job as a salesman, convinced that he is going to make it big. He tells his wife, Linda, “You wait, kid, before it’s all over we’re gonna get a little place out in the country, and I’ll raise some vegetables, a couple of chickens…” (Miller 53). Willy has no doubt in his mind that he will strike it rich and get to retire with his own little garden, in a place where the garden will be free to grow to its fullest. He is deluded about his dream; if he has not made it thus far, then how can he achieve what he wants continuing on the same path as before?

Father to Amir and Hassan. Baba is a wealthy and highly respected Afghan merchant, and has never truly connected with his son Amir, thinking he should be more manly by playing soccer and running kites.

It is a stereotypical routine that everyone has gone through. Growing up, a child listens to the irrational suggestions that friends make and it may not seem like a monumental event at the time, but when everything adds up, their actions show who they are. If a child acts out in order to impress friends, these actions will carry out through their lives and that is the kind of person they will become. They may not see themselves as they type of person everyone else sees them as, but who you truly are, and who you may think you are can be two completely different people. The earlier evidence provided shows clear examples on how friends greatly affect an individual’s identity and how they perceive
Goals are a healthy and helpful thing to have, but when people become too focused on the outcome it can change the entirety of who they are. In “The Censors” by Luisa Valenzuela, Juan sends a letter that changes his life. He tries his hardest to get it back and gets a brand new job just to do so, but the letter consumes his life and him as a person. Valenzuela uses revealing actions and tone to highlight how obsessing over goals can change every aspect of life. Valenzuela's revealing action of when Juan puts himself into his work highlights how it’s easier to lose yourself than it seems.

From younger age, we have been taught to behave in a certain way in order to fit in.

It is a tough world to live in; its pressure and rules can lead so many people to run away from it seeking a peace of their mind. But where should we run to? The wilderness, as being the only alternative to the human world, seems to be an ideal place to take a vacation from all of the distractions of modernity, where all human problems seem to fade and become meaningless.
Many authors choose to write about characters who experience adversity. In “ How it Feels to Be Colored,” Hurston shows that there will always be difficult times, but being able to learn and take an advantage out of the adversity will show a great benefit. Taking a bad experience and being able to know your worth even if most do not will give you an advantage, Hurston says, “ How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company? It’s beyond me.” Hurston uses a sense of humor towards discrimnation, The effects of adversity are prominent in my mother’s life. My mom had my father walk out on her when she had a two year old and a newborn.
