Student Student Holden, Changed by Past Events During the course of Holden Caulfield’s life, there have been many events that have changed Holden into the person he is today. Due to a rough childhood, Holden had a tremendously tough time transitioning into adulthood. Such things as his younger brother’s death, and his older brother moving to Hollywood contributed to Holden becoming depressed. A chain reaction started. Holden was kicked out of several schools, and he was left on his own at Pencey.
Things might have been so much more different. I’ve taken away two of my best friends life’s and have my cousin injured for the rest of his life. I have not only stolen a teenager from their youth but also the love they shared for their loved ones and a future never to be discovered. How can I look at my family and friends the same way? These are just some of the questions I ask myself everyday waking up from horrific dreams.
Outrage Article Posted On November 13th, 2004 by Stewart I truly appreciate your latest article and how you must be feeling right now. I watch as those close and dear to me refuse to see what is happening in the world, or to take responsibility for their own mind-patterns, despite my gentle promptings and Oversoul communication. I understand they are a reflection of me at some level, but the work I am doing is moving me away from this. Sadly, many people are not changing to reflect my new Self meaning they will move out of my life at some point. It is hard, when you can see the amazing potential within humanity, to watch it slide deeper into a self-made prison.
I have family members who are always saying negative things to me like- “It’s too expensive to attend college,” you’ll never find time,” it’s too late,” and etc. I have long separated from some of these family members because I needed boundaries and knew they were not part of my eventual goals for my life. I ultimately knew that if I didn’t separate, my dreams and a piece of myself would die. As a result, I make sure to concentrate my energy on various healthy challenges and this has helped me to forget about the negative words and impacts in my life. Thank God- that I have been able to succeed in most of my goals.
I eventually got away. For many years I just felt disconnected and numb, unable to communicated or understand this. I loathed myself and believed that I was inferior to everyone else. Middle aged and the after effects of my abuse have followed me this far in my life being a never ending cycle of depression and abusive intimate relationships. Acknowledging the root of the problem has allowed me to shift my perspective somewhat.
Unkle Billy escaped his direct fate by dooming the others and it is never let known to the reader if he becomes happy later on in his life, though it is doubted by his cynical and untrustworthy nature; he would probably never let himself be happy by always fearing the world around him. Oakhurst and the Duchess both had more life to look forward to and so far they had been living life on their terms, even if it wasn’t the optimal way to live. The Innocent and Piney had each other and had run away to fulfil their lives of happiness together. Mother Shipton was the only one in the confining cabin that didn’t have something specific to look forward to after the mountains, yet she had been living her life the way she choose before the exile. Society had thrown out Oakhurst, Duchess and Mother Shipton for them being themselves; by living their successes they were condemned.
Those two scenes caught my attention because in the past, I have been told those lines when I felt I had no purpose in life and just could not move on. I fell deeply in love, he was my first love but because of certain situations we had to break up. I just could not believe what happened to our love and resorted to cruising around the island many times and I actually did not care about school. I did some things I never thought I would do before. Close friends would tell me to move on but I was stuck in the past.
But no matter what, I don’t think that I ever could forgive a cheater. For me, I would always wonder if that person would do it again, and I could never forget a betrayal like that. Even if someone falls in love in someone else, that person should always end the relationship before doing anything else. But once a cheater, always a cheater isn’t something I do believe in when it comes to every person. I believe people have stereotypes for different reasons some come from the way you grow up are the way their live their life, but after reading the articles about stereotyping has lasting negative impact.
Iago was constantly persuading me to steal it from my Lady and I denied his request every single time but yesterday, opportunity presented itself and I did not think twice about taking it. I had hoped that by presenting the handkerchief, he would be kinder and more loving towards me and that night, I got what I wanted but the affection and love I received was a reward and not a gift. I observed Othello and my Lady together. His touches are sincere and gentle, his voice loving and sweet and they are not a reward, but a gift. My husband is not and will never be like that and because of this, I am regretting my thievery immediately for I fear that he will use the handkerchief to destroy the amorous bond my Lady and Othello has developed.
