These people often representing new identities (Mills 261). These immigrants try to find their identities for some time because they are not calmed mentally. They never feel at home neither in a host country or their homelands. They become depressed and shattered.

The American Dream is dead and there is nothing anyone can do about it. There is not one single thing that helps people in America get back on their feet when they are struggling. The American Dream is dead for all who come here for a fresh start; people have to constantly work and struggle to keep a roof over their families head and food on the table. This is an argument by many, yet some factors that must be considered are the thinking of a person who wants to strive and their work ethic. The American Dream is only a possibility for those who are willing to work for what they want and not take good opportunities for granted.
Emotional limitations cause discontent when our ailments control our decisions and hold us back. In Elizabeth Bishop’s poem, “The Man-Moth” and in Tennessee Williams's, The Glass Menagerie, the male protagonists in both stories face limitations. These emotional limitations drive The Glass Menagerie’s Tom to make irrational choices that were made when the dissatisfaction became too much to bear; this similar situation is found with “The Man-Moth’s” Man-Moth. The negative effect and discontent caused by emotional restriction found in Tom’s life are comparable to the hardships the Man-Moth faces as the result of his personal limitations. This causes these two men to live with discomfort, which leads them to become irrational and cloistered.

Due to his indecisiveness and lack of a cemented identity, The Namesake’s Gogol takes on Moushumi 's more clearly defined way of life, ultimately resulting in Gogol being left lonely and hopeless following the divorce. Building itself heavily on the concepts of giving Gogol a sense of identity and a shared need for security, their marriage lacks a mutual input of care and connection. Time after time in his romantic life, from Ruth to Maxine, Gogol has stolen everything about their culture to grant him a sense of meaning. Jhumpa Lahiri shows the very one sided nature of the marriage by providing proof that Moushumi and Gogol focus on filling one another’s emptiness, rather than creating a true connection. Unlike both of their previous relationships, this one stems from an arranged date by Gogol’s mother Ashima.
