Her intentions may be pure as she wants the best for Phoebe, but it doesn’t deny the fact that she’s also doing that for her own self preservation. Secrets that are kept for one’s own, selfish intention cause pain to other, no matter who they are. A different time secrets caused pain to others was when David comes back after days of being away with a pregnant girl named Rosemary. When Paul’s trying to convince his mother to let him stay home from school he describes her as talking calmly and with red eyes from crying (276). Norah is obviously hurt that David has come back with a pregnant girl as she assumes that Rosemary’s pregnant with David’s child.
Rue, I think is the best ally she could have. She may not be a Career but she still is fast and she accepts that at some point one of them will have to die. An example of this is on page 213 when Katniss goes to destroy the Career’s supplies. Rue gives her a hug as if Katniss was someone she had known for a long time. Katniss hesitates before returning the hug because she does not want to get too attached to her since this will make it harder for her to let her go if she dies.
As Hannah becomes a mother herself and a mother being the first model of love that the children experiences, she emotionally detaches herself from Sula as she was detached from her mother. Sula is able to shape her ego and separate herself from her family after she overhears her mother’s conversation: "You love her, like I love Sula. I just don't like her". Hannah not representing an admirable empathetic mother figure makes Sula assert control over her identity through the inability of connecting with other people as an adult. She is able to find her autonomy and independence denying responsibilities and attachment to anything.
In this way I believe the author continues to show that we always will reap the consequences that are a result of the decisions we make without heeding the warning signs given by those wiser and older than us. The author also mentions how she almost cried even before she arrived to the boarding school because everyone was starring at her, which tells us that she already regrets leaving her mother. Sometimes people think they know best when they really
It was because “Everybody worried about her. Everybody loved her.” (5). Her attitude gives the family members, in this case Kai, more of a reason to walk away from her and make her a memory only. Faye has grown so much into her conflict that she doesn’t think she will come out of it. So her response is to quickly give up the dream husband that she has and give up a life with
The fact that Antigone is now alone is this process does not slow her down at all; not even after Ismene warns her that the consequence of her actions could be death. “Our own death would be if we should go against Creon.” (Line 46, Pg 774). Due to Ismene’s lack of help, Antigone is feeling betrayed by her sister, but will continue on without her. “But as for me, I will bury the brother I love.” (Line 69, Pg 774). Later on when Antigone has buried her brother, Polynieces, she created yet another betrayal; this time on King Creon.
This cant be answered unless you know the events Janie had to overcome during her childhood. The movie does a great job of showing Janie's disgust for Logan Killicks. Although Janie has absolutely no interest in Logan, she ends up marrying him. There was no love in their relationship, the only reason Janie's nanny made her marry was because she was scared, scared that she would die and Janie would be left alone with nothing. Nanny wanted to feel like Janie was stable, so she could rest in peace.
At that moment she genuinely wishes she were born a son, which would have equipped her better in dealing with the challenges of her life. The words “Each disappointment, ice above my river” indicate that she is fully sapped of enthusiasm after those ‘perceived’ failings (750). She feels that she will never find success in school, and she is never able to please her parents. Perfection is something that we as humans often strive to achieve. Additionally, it is human nature to try to please those that we care about.
Also, the guilt that she lives with from killing her baby haunts her throughout her life. It may have traumatized her, but she doesn’t let it get to her and valiantly escapes from Sweet Home. She established in her life, that there will be “No more running ̶ from nothing” (Morrison, 15). Although her memories scar her physically and mentally, she continues to be proud and refuses to let these memories replay in her children’s lives. A mother is obligated to show love and care towards her child.
It is a painful thing/ to look at your own trouble and know/ that you yourself and no one else has made it” (Ajax, 17.) This conversation is an example of how much his wife forgave Ajax almost immediately after the horrid event. She understands that even though he should get over it and try to move on, he has created a lot of conflict within his own head and is struggling with that. She goes on to say, “ If someone posed the question which would you choose:/ To grieve your friends while feeling joy yourself/ or to be wretched with them, shares alike?” (Ajax, 17.) Tecmessa supports
