This causes her to resent her life even more. This is a form of greed that has been twisted into an intense case of jealousy. Instead of being content and seeing what she has, she only whines and complains. The want for wealth is a weakness that in traits and causes the most of her situations. Some say that the root of all evil comes from money.
She shows off more than she has. “Mme loisel” knows she is not rich, and cannot accept to be around with her friend “Mme forester”. Her hunger for beauty and glamour results in the borrowing of the necklace. This becomes the bane of her life. “Some say the root of all evil is money”.
For the most part, she has a pessimistic explanatory style. She attributes her situation to an internal cause; she believes that she is not a strong enough person to stand up for what she believes in. She tells V that she thinks she is not as brave as her parents, and therefore cannot fight back against the government as they did. She declares: “I wish I wasn’t afraid all of the time, but I am.” Evey assumes that the conditions she lives under are stable; she doesn’t think that they are going to get any better. Also, she makes global attributions for the decisions that she and others have to make.
She was married to Monsieur Loisel who could only provide her a not so comfortable lifestyle. She is unsatisfied of what she have that she became nearly unaware of almost everything around her but the wealth she does not have. She keeps on imagining an extravagant existence: an elaborate feast, fancy jewels and clothing. She has a wealthy friend Madame Forestier. Mathilde is jealous of her and she will do anything in her power to reverse the mistake of destiny that made her poor.
Looks can be deceiving and I believe this statement plays a great role in this story. The main character, Mathilde, encounters a situation where she feels as though she belongs in a higher class based off her beautiful looks. She is neither wealthy nor comes from a family of wealth but feels as though she deserves as much because of her appearance. Unsatisfied with her lifestyle, Mathilde noticeably expresses her dilemma by complaining to her husband, Monsieur Loisel that she doesn’t want to attend the special event because she has nothing of higher class to wear. Mathilde then borrowed her rich friend Madame Forestier’s necklace, and at that moment, I could already foreshadow something bad to happen.
Despite knowing she's unhealthy, we crave to be that thin. And despite knowing this picture is so intensely edited, we'de die to look like this woman. We live in a soceity where plastic is pretty. Poorly molded, easily breakable, feeble and frail plastic, that can fray easily and rip apart just like the ego of a teenage girl. The quality of soceity is decreasing due to greedy people SO ravenous that they twist moral standards arounds in order to make money.
Why Relationships Fail The amount of divorces in the United States every year is astounding. There are many reasons these relationships don’t work. The biggest reason being the lack of communication between the couple. Two other reasons are cheating and the absence of respect within the relationship. These are very important factors of relationships, and if they aren’t practiced the right way it can lead to the destruction of a good friendship.
The story starts off right away describing Madame Loisel beauty and charm but unfortunately she was born into the wrong class. She isn’t happy with the life that she has. She dreams of a life with parties and elegant dresses and jewels. Madame Loisel is so envious of a rich, old school friend who lives a different life that she actually refuses to go and visit because she feels worse about her life when she returns home. Her friend doesn’t appear to be proud of boastful in the story and doesn’t seem to care that Madame Loisel is poorer than her.
"(faculty.unlv.edu, The Victorian Period) throughout my research about the victorian period it seemed to be that marriage was of people protecting their own resources and to be keep their unacceptable impulses under control. I noticed that in The Importance of Being Earnest, when they show a different type of social class they presented Lady Bracknell, that is a very "wealthy person". her major concerns where class and money. She did not like Jack because he didnt know who his parents where making him not to know his social class. LAdy Bracknell: Her major concerns where class and money.
When I criticize and attack myself, it is because knowing I failed makes me think about if i had tried harder then it would have made a difference. Negative self concept is often hidden from the world because we are suppose to perceive ourself with positivity in order to be accepted but that can change. Self concept is basically the beliefs and attitudes we role play in our lives. In How to Improve Your Self Concept, it mentions “your attitudes about yourself may be positive for some roles, and not so positive for others”. There will always be negative views because we do not live even near a Utopia society and we cannot please everybody.
