According to Freud, mixture of feelings of love and hate that Diane presumably felt for her mother were the results of her obsessional thoughts and fear of losing the mother, and could actually mean an unconscious wish of Diane to kill her mother. In order to remove the feelings of guilt resulting from those thoughts, Diane engaged in ritualistic praying that have given her a relief. In terms of treatment, Freud believed that people could be cured by making conscious their unconscious thoughts and motivations, thus gaining “insight” (McLeod, 2007).

Sociologically, grieving within families is not an easy task. Each family member reacts to death differently and forces family members to make changes in their lives in order to adjust to life without this family member. Raney and Charles had a hard time accepting the suicide of Uncle Nate. When Charles voiced his opinion that Uncle Nate was clearly depressed, obsessive-compulsive, and crippled from his life experiences, thus needing psychological help in order to heal, Raney took it as an insult. In Raney’s mind, Charles was placing blame on her, her family, and specifically, her mother who spent most of her time taking care of Uncle Nate.
When she is called to the stand she is “fragile-looking” and “looked as if she tried to look clean”. This agrees with the readers theory that Mayella is wanting be good, yet she is tainted by her father who “had a scalded look” due to “an overnight soaking”.

This would make some readers feel pity for Mayella as she is lamenting due to horrific flashbacks she may encounter, others may think that this is a cover up as she knows what she is doing is wrong, and she is trying to get the judge and the jury to side with her.

Mairs even goes as far to say that, “Because I hate being crippled, I sometimes hate myself for being a cripple. Over the years I have come to expect--even accept--attacks of violent self-loathing”(337). I feel as though that Mairs venting is good because some people claim in order to be honest with another individual, you first have to be honest with yourself and Mairs shows that. If Mair is honest with herself she can guide another person with being honest about their feelings. For example my grandmother has diabetes and she sometimes lies about how she feel.
Within the occupation of Hitler in Nazi Germany, author Susan Bartoletti recalls, “Though Sophie knew the correct National Socialistic answer to every question, she soon found herself unwilling to give her teachers the answers they wanted but she felt were wrong” (Bartoletti). Soon realizing that the national socialist views conflicted with her own, Sophie did her best to stay committed to her own morals, which overall benefited her mental health by strengthening her resolve. Sophie was also able to healthily cope by confiding her brother, Hans, which aided her in the struggle. The results based on a study done in 2004 in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology showed, “Greater feelings of authenticity were also shown to
