Positive Thinking and Conflict There are many times in one’s life where a simple positive gesture can make their day. Anne, in “The Diary of a Young Girl” by Anne Frank along with Louise Ogawa in “Dear Miss Breed” by Joanne Oppenheim, display attitudes that not only helped themselves, but gave other people hope. Though some might argue that positivity during a conflicting situation won’t help resolve anything, having a positive outlook on a negative situation can help someone solve their disagreement swiftly and efficiently.

Tom Robinson was able to show Mayella a great amount of empathy in doing her work for free, simply out of the goodness of his heart, as Mr. Gilmer mocks saying, “‘You’re a mighty fine fellow, it seems- did all this for not one penny?’” (197). Little did he know that Mayella would betray him later, yet he was still willing to do all the work that she asked him to. While Mr. Gilmer used his works to make fun of Tom, one cannot deny that they are true- Tom was definitely a ‘fine fellow’ for helping Mayella out with her chores. The other source of decency that comes from the trial isn’t even directly compassion, but a lack of cruelty. When Helen Robinson’s husband is killed and Mr. Ewell lashes out at her on her way to work, she does not speak negatively of him or attack him back.

Unlike Martin, Arnaud actually takes interest in her wellbeing and treats her with respect; this inspires the emotional bond that Bertrande shows she has for Arnaud when she tries to protect him from having his identity questioned. The dream continues to come true for Bertrande because she also gets the benefit of a good public appearance with Arnaud as she did with Martin. Due to Arnaud posing as Martin, in the public eye she is still the virtuous wife who is loyal to her husband no matter what they have been through. However, Arnaud is
