"Isolation as a Way of Protection" Sometimes people would rather walk away from their problems instead of facing them. Isolation is a way of feeling protected for some people due to their fear of being hurt because of bad experiences. Walking away and isolation are effective ways of avoiding problems, however, it will not change the reality of life and the good or bad that comes with it. In the movie, "The Village" directed by Shyamalan, the elders isolated themselves and their families in order to be protected from the real world but at the end, the movie shows the audience that people need each other in order to be happy or safe. Lucius helped Ivy when they were younger, but he stopped doing it because Ivy 's sister Kitty was interested
Human beings are naturally social with one another. Therefore, the mere feeling of being socially isolated is likely caused by another's ethnicity, status, mental capability, or, by appearance. When socially unaccepted, the emotion of loneliness quickly rushes into the mind along with a negative path of thinking, such as self-critical thoughts. This inner critic feeds on the feelings of isolation and loneliness, causing the victim to remain remote from crowds, or urging the need to find people they can meaningfully connect with. Although when surrounded in the company of others, the victim does not always feel a sense of belonging, due to the incapability of overcoming mental obstacles, lack of understanding, and unawareness to the idea of quality over quantity.
The mother cares so much about her son that she does not want him to see her getting upset in his final days. “She held a ghost smile between her teeth, and in her eyes memories.” When it says ghost smile it shows that she does not want to show her child that she is upset about the situation of his death, because as you know children do not like it when they see their mother upset. Also when it says the memories in her eyes it refers to the flashbacks of the good times they had together presumably before they got put in the refugee camp. This is therefore another reason for her to be hiding her
They also want to help them with have a set schedule and not be out too late so they can rest for school the next day. It can also be for them to be responsible with the rules that are given to them. Teens who tends to have a curfew are they ones who stay out of trouble because they have rules they follow. Teens who don’t have rules are they ones who stay out late to cause trouble because there’s no one to tell them otherwise. The teens who do have someone to guide them with what is good or wrong are the ones who stay out of trouble because they have someone who is there to help them.

In The Possibility of Evil, Miss Strangeworth’s idealistic evil keeps the townspeople from being happy. Miss Strangeworth’s idea of a utopian society requires that the townspeople are protected from the “possible evil lurking nearby” (Jackson 226), and she does this by writing dishonest letters to the townspeople believing that “the town where she lived hat to be kept clean and sweet” (Jackson 226). However, this causes the townspeople to be miserable because of Miss Strangeworth’s letters, and although people did not show their disdain for Miss Strangeworth at first, they do when they realize that she was the person
Because of my new situation of being alone for the first time in my life, I felt lost and looked for support from other people. I saw that moving to a friend’s place would satisfy me needs but it made my situation worse. Being a shy person, it was hard for me to approach and express my disagreements with my roommate, but this experience made me someone different about future situations as those. Nowadays if I need to express myself or need to say anything, I will say it. I still am me, but I am more open to deal with conflicts head on instead of accepting them.
I believe lower-class communities are not offered the same opportunities as upper-class. However, there are certain opportunities that are offered in these communities and individuals choose not to take advantage of it, because it is easier to get the money than to work for the money, i.e. welfare. I think it affects the younger population the most because they don’t have encouragement all around. For instance, they might have great programs in the community, counselors who believe in them, teachers who are supportive, but if they go home to a parent who is mentally abusing them and badgering them, then they will feel worthless because that person whom they believe and have trusted their whole life is right, they will never amount to nothing. So ultimately they feel worthless.
Loneliness People experience loneliness as a negative emotion that arises from a discrepancy between desired and achieved levels of social contact (Tan et al., 2013). One can experiences loneliness whether they are surround by several people or not; Tan, Pamuk, and Donder (2013) proposed that the multiplicity of social relations does not matter, instead the quality of these interactions matter. The absences of satisfying needs for attachment and belonging may increase the levels of loneliness one will experience (Reid & Reid, 2007). Lonely individuals can feel empty, or angry.
(STEWE-2) Najmah is again unable to open up to Nusrat because of her trigger avoidance, “I try to smile at her, she is very kind, but I still do not want to be touched and I do not yet want to talk about my family” (Staples 206). Once again, her trigger avoidance acts as a tool for the author to explain that loss affects a person in a way that they will never be the same again. As Najmah does not wish to talk about her family, it shows that by avoiding any and all possible triggers she protects herself from pain. The suffering she experienced during and after the bombing explains her wish to never experience it ever again. But that in itself shows that their deaths control her actions and her feelings.
Reasons why some of these disparities exist is because of the lack of acceptance, and mental illness stigma can allow for health disparities to exist within our population. Mood disorders still exist for a variety of reasons like biologically, environments and social influences. Disparities exists with some of these disorders like anxiety, depression, PTSD, etc. because there is still a stigma associated with having one or more of these disorders. People with any form of a mood disorder may not seek help because the book mentions that they often have “feelings of shame guilt, loss of self-esteem, and a sense of isolation and hopelessness”.
After Maleeka reads what her dad wrote about her and what he used to think about his daughter, she changes herself.(Page 48-49) She starts to avoid Charlese and other people. The tide turns to her, she is no more judged the same way as she was judged before. That was some deep information about Prejudice and how it is used in the book The Skin I’m in .Prejudice is not a matter unless you feel strong about yourself, all you wanna be sure about is that you are the best and no one is better than you.
After the conference, Marilla shows sympathy towards Anne as demonstrated in the last part of Scene 3. I think Marilla judged Anne by her appearance and not by her personality and when Marilla learned more about Anne’s past life, she then developed a passion for Anne and decided to keep her after hearing about her past life rather judging her on her physical appearance and then trading her for a male orphan. That’s how I believe this will affect her relationship with Anne and Anne’s story about her past life caused Marilla to change her
