In ‘Runaway’, the plot is extremely slow initially but speeds up towards the end and this makes for a great an impactful effect on the reader. The central plot is based around events that happen in the protagonist’s life. Her happiness is faced with a demanding husband and a peculiar relationship with the neighbor, Sylvia Jamieson. Munro develops the story from the perspective of a 3rd person omniscient by voicing Carla’s emotion and her misery, which then builds into desperation when she goes to Sylvia’s house and cries until she finally decides to escape her cramped life at the farm. But Munro realizes that this is not an ideal world that we live in and makes the ending far more realistic than what the reader would expect.
The Refuge of Loneliness “If you think love will drive you mad, try loneliness.” (Xavier). Although love may blind an individual, loneliness will transform them into weaker versions of themselves, in which they take disputatious actions. In John Steinbeck’s novella, Of Mice and Men, the effects of being disregarded by others is exemplified through Curley’s Wife’s actions. In this society, Curley’s Wife is heavily neglected by those around her, which is also proven through the lack of her legitimate name. Therefore, she goes out of her way in order to meet her needs and desires, but eventually leads to her death.

In William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily,” the protagonist, Miss Emily Grierson, is faced with challenges that leave her no choice but to find a way to escape the internal struggle of loneliness created by her own actions, leading to self-inflicted destruction. Looking in on the surface, the female character is imprisoned by the repressiveness of her father. While he played a huge role in causing Emily’s mental state to deteriorate, it was ultimately the consequences of her own self-control that confined her mind. Because of her poor choices, Emily lives in misery instead of rescuing herself from such damaging chains of sorrow. Throughout the text, it is evident that the overall conflict in “A Rose for Emily” was driven by self-deprecation
Regret is a feeling that one gets after doing something wrong or failing to do something. This feeling makes a person reflect on their actions in order to learn, grow and develop into a better, stable person. In Louisa May Alcott 's novel "Little Women”, regret is always followed by anger towards the end of a situation. When Amy March infuriated her sister Josephine, Josephine ignored her until she almost lost her sister and ended up feeling guilty because of her bad temper. Theodore Laurence also acted impulsively when he embarrassed Margaret March because he got irritated from Josephine for not telling him a secret.
Jealousy is not felt physically, and yet it can prick at a person’s heart like a sharp needle, and affect the way that one can act. But can this feeling be taken too far? Imagine a woman, who is weeping in her room, hearing news that her husband, Jason, would be marrying someone else. She is at first in disbelief, and falls into a deep depression over her grief, not even being able to bear seeing her own children. This is definitely unjustified and morally incorrect for her husband to leave her, and she does not deserve this treatment.
Here, we see that a woman is not following her traditional gender roles as being “submissive”, so in a patriarchal society, she will have to face consequences. Then when Ruth was in labor, she wasn’t able to give birth. “When he would not be born,” Beattie states, “an impatient doctor used forceps and tugged him out, and there was a slight brain damage” (5). This quote gives evidence that women are weak and cannot do much without masculine help. When women choose to be independent and not follow what their traditional gender roles, there is something that has to conflict their lives that they live their lives in humility.
(Munro, 5). This reveals the fact that the protagonist in "Boys and Girls", does not trust her mother. Her mother is always plotting against her, to do something that the protagonist hates. What the protagonist and her mother have, was not love. When you love someone, you get a connection that then creates trust between the two individuals.
I know someone who has clinical depression, this stops her from completing everyday activities that other people do. She constantly has loss of interest in doing things especially getting out of bed most times. Most of the time she constantly feels like she is hopeless and sometimes even does not want to continue living her life. She has triggers that of course trigger the depression, therefore she stays away from the things that triggers her. Skinner in the behavioral theory would look at clinical depression as a learned behavior, according to simply psychology, depression is learned through certain negative emotional states and also observation and reinforcement.
Mastey (2009)1 described widowhood in India as a moment in a woman’s life that is definitive and tragic, where the death of her spouse strips away her own identity. As these women are not very well educated due to low literacy rate in India, they are not left with many options in terms of occupation. Thousands of widows are disowned by their relatives and thrown out of their homes in the context of land and inheritance disputes. Their options, given a lack of education and training, are mostly limited to becoming exploited, unregulated, domestic labourers (often as house slaves within the husband 's family), or turning to begging or prostitution (Bill I, 2006)2. Indian widows are often regarded as “evil eyes,” the purveyors of ill fortune and unwanted burdens on poor families (UN Division for the Advancement of Women, 2000)3.
