“Positive emotion” help us in a whole range of ways; consequently, two of those ways are pushing ourselves physically to accomplish a goal and mentally by turning a threat related thoughts into positive one.

A sense of “meaning” helps us reach our goals by mentally and physically not giving up; therefore, allowing us to accomplish our goals because they have a sense of purpose.
When he does not let go when she asks, she begins to yell for help. At the possibility of not being able to tend the rabbits, Lennie becomes upset.

Many of these traits are present in The Pigman by Paul Zindell. However, I have found that the character John lacks enough of these assets that he could possibly grow up to be an unsuccessful adult. John will not be successful in his future because he lacks both honesty and responsibility, even though some people may say he has family boundaries. Honesty is an essential asset to becoming a successful adult. It is obvious in The Pigman that John severally lacks this important trait.
Not one person could devise a dare so wild that Louie Zamperini would pass it up: “Thrilled by the crashing of boundaries, Louie was untamable”(6). Even when other children would come up with extremely risky dares, Louie was too determined to back out. Expectedly, Louie’s thieving earned him a bad reputation throughout his hometown of Torrance, California, overlooking the part of him that turned around and gave away his stolen possessions to those in worse need. Becoming more and more irritated, people began to wish for a different and perhaps more productive outlet
She seems young because she is depending on a careless man. For example, when she said, “And if I do it you will be happy, and things will be like they were.” (255), she is lonely and desperate girl who is still having hope of being happy. She is in a bad mood and depressed too much to even ready to die, it is obvious from her reply, “I don’t care about me” (255) multiple times, waiting for him to say nice words or even make her feel good. He seems as being selfish and careless by starting this relationship and then lacking the support Jig needs from him.

Flowers for Charlie “Those who use others are stupid but those who are used are even more stupid” (Internet). Charlie Gordon, the main character in Daniel Keyes’ book, Flowers for Algernon, ended up being in worse condition after undergoing a surgical procedure that was supposed to heighten his intelligence. Furthermore, the scientists unfortunately did not use ethics or take enough care in treating Charlie causing his now worse condition to be their own fault. Their greed led them to abuse and take advantage of Charlie, a very gullible and persuadable because of his low intelligence, and their mistakes led Charlie to his death, the ultimate sacrifice. The choice of using Charlie Gordon in Daniel Keyes’ book, Flowers for Algernon, for an intelligence altering surgery was unethical and biased.
