The new team of managers did not recognise Jillian's special talents and seeing her as a new recruit and a recent graduate they treated her differently and regularly complained about her work results. Jillian became quite depressed but she continued on in her work and tried to accept this change in her life. When the economy took a downturn and despite all her past efforts and achievements, the company chose her for retrenchment. Jillian was devastated. For the first time in her life she found herself without a plan and she found it difficult to accept that even though she was hard working and a high achiever and despite having put a lot of effort and energy in her work, that she would be discarded easily by her new managers.
Hannah Baker was just an average girl that did everything average high school girls did. But during her high school life many events happened that led to the end of her short life. All of These events played a vital role in why she committed suicide; She lost trust in people, believed no one cared about her, and just gave up. Then though I believe it could have been different if clay had went up to her and tried to talk to her and actually showed her that he actually cared about her. Then I do believe that they could have ended up being in a relationship with each other and then Hannah would have finally found happiness in her life.

Pearl is a sort of living version of her mother’s scarlet letter. Like the letter, she is something that stands out in society by being an uncommon child. Yet, even as a reminder of Hester’s sin, Pearl is more than a mere punishment to her mother: she is also a blessing. She represents not only sin, but also the vital spirit of that sin. Thus, Pearl’s existence gives her mother reason to live, bolstering her spirits when she is tempted to give up; acting as a hero who constantly saves her mother from the tortures of Puritan society.
The prenatal Cash was a part of her, someone inside of her from whom she could never isolate herself. In the reluctant mother’s mind, Anse Bundren was to blame for corrupting her sense of privacy and would be forever dead to her. In this way, she severed what was supposed to be the most sovereign relationship in a woman’s life and created a rift through what was to come of the Bundren family. As the family grows, Addie develops misconceptions about her relationship to her children. Cash had violated her aloneness, while Darl was deprived of the love that Addie poured so strongly into the void that was her third son.
However, as a very young woman Nguyen recognised the injustice she had been dealt and acknowledged that she deserved better, she ran away from home and went into hiding, never to have direct contact with her father again, despite the ultimate shame it would cast over her family.

Does Nguyen fill the portrait of an insecure child afraid and incapable to step outside the boundaries of parental
Yet recently all the memories of her and I have come flooding back to me in tidal waves of emotions, and after consideration I feel I have not done enough. I did not cherish every second of every minute of every hour I was with her and it devastates me at this time, but that’s how it always goes I suppose. But not for her. Mrs. Mallard ensured my life was as simplistic and easy going as she could. Whether it was her loving support, physical labors, or the smiles she would give me which could outshine the moon.
I believe Lily was in fact very thankful to finally hear what truly happened from her father, but she also makes it very clear that no matter how bad she deserved to know she didn’t really want to hear that she in fact accidently killed her own mother. “You think you want to know something, and then once you do, all you can think about is erasing it from your to mind.” (Kidd 308). Lily is faced with a burden inexplicable to your average young child, which leads to her running away and luckily finding the home that she always needed after the loss of her mom. Growing through such a tragedy and still somehow recovering from it shows how much Lily matures throughout her few years portrayed in Sue Monk Kidd’s infamous
It is unexpected because their relationship is so intense. Lady Macbeth has lost a child when it was very young. It is shocking when she says she would have smashed it to the floor rather than go back on a promise. This would be the ultimate sacrifice. She makes the point that she knew the joy of being a mother, and would have given that up for Macbeth to be king.
He considers “The Little Engine That Could” a realistic story. He shares the story of a young adult who reminisced about her childhood and remembered the disappointment she experienced from this story. Bettelheim claims that she experienced this negative effect because the story was set in the present and the main character was a common, well-known prop. These associations caused the girl to apply the story directly to her life, and when she failed (unlike the tank engine in the story) she assumed that she failed at a task that anyone else could have accomplished. Bettelheim argued that “without any fantasy elaboration (Bettelheim 470),” this girl was doomed from the start.
