Mental health can be taken for granted, until people realize that the world is full of humans with mental issues. It puts a strain on how relationships are formed and how others are portrayed/judged. The story Silver Water is of a girl (Rose) who develops a serious mental issue in her teenage years. It shows the effects her mental break has on her surroundings, but mainly her family, who suffer severely as well. Amy Bloom writes,¨She (Rose) had her first psychotic break when she was 15.¨ Prior to this mental break, Violet thought of Rose as a talented and beautiful sister; she begins to feel distant towards her in the midst of Roseś crisis but she always is willing to help in any way she can.
My parents, Chantal and Edouard Robichaud, have told me my entire life, well technically I can't know for my earlier years because babies don’t remember stuff right, that I am very different from my sister Alicia. She is like the quietest girl on earth. I sometimes forget she exists and get scared when she comes out of her room. So, sometimes I feel so different from my family that life can feel like a test I didn’t study for. I’d say I’m passing it
A sister is someone that is there for you through everything, they are your sister by chance but your best friend by choice. New York Times says that sisters make you happier and for me that was extremely true. For the first 10 years of my life, I was the younger, annoying, bothersome little sister that annoyed the living crap out of my older sister. But yet it was her and I against the world. Nobody else ever came close to meaning as much to me as she did.
He described how tough it was for his mother when she made the transition to America because most of her friends and family are still currently living over there. The interviewee was able to recognize that currently, Venezuela is not a place people want to visit and even though his mother misses her hometown and her family, she knows how dangerous it is. Watching the news, and hearing from friends and families that are currently struggling really hits home with her. Reflection on Lessons Learned The interviewee I interviewed is a close family friend and prior to this interview, I was not aware of the differences we actually have. Based on our values, we are actually very similar.
She wasn’t going to let anyone mess with her anymore and they began to see that. No one should have to go through the mental struggle that she did, but sometimes you have to get knocked down to build yourself up stronger. That’s what she did the old weak her was destroyed, she didn’t exist anymore. She was a new stronger person who knows her worth. She still has no social media and she is happy, truly happy.
She always wanted to do something good with her life. She loved the way the prosecutor in the show was always saying how the judge had control if they wanted to prove someone guilty or innocent. She knew what she wanted to do, and she was willing to work hard and see where it took her. But growing up she came from a really dysfunctional family. Her dad was an alcoholic, she rarely saw her mother, and she grew up a diabetic.
The main one being if she would’ve gotten better and been released to come home, she would’ve had to use a wheelchair for the rest of her life, since the left side of her body was paralyzed. Anyone that knew my grandma, knew she greatly enjoyed being up or out doing something, and especially loved driving. She would no longer be able to do those things, or would have great difficulty with them. Another thing she wouldn’t be able to do is travel, which she adored doing with my grandfather. I knew she would be greatly upset she would no longer be able to do the things she loved the most and although it hurt more than anything to have to say goodbye, heaven needed an angel and gained the best one the day she passed away.
Most of her relationships would last but 3 months, 4 months or maximum of 6 months before they break up. She was beautiful, qualified, also very kind. She was what anybody would look for, still she could never have a sustaining and nourishing relationship with any man. In the process she discovered that the trouble began in her relationship with her mother. During her childhood she would see her mother to be a very tempestuous woman, who is giving in into a lot of temper tantrums and anger, and her father suffering in the hands of her mother.
However, her actions left me and my younger sister to fend for ourselves whenever things at home are rocky. To protect my younger sister, I invested my time and efforts to her and as always, she is my pride and joy. She's doing so much better than my older sister and I. On 2012, my grandfather died and I have been hating myself ever since. I was supposed to be with him but I felt lazy and decided not to go.
He told me harsh things and I still ran back to him, because I thought things would work. He stopped contacting me, and I was miserable as ever but I realized that I don't need anyone to make me happy. You don't need all the stress, especially if your'e young. This is a little personal, I use to live with my grandma until I was 9 and moved in with my mom and had to adjust to her. It was hard and weird, I looked at my grandma as a mom.
