I do not have any close friends any longer. In college, I had a few friends, but never really got to the point of “closeness” with them. I always felt that they would never accept me for me, especially if they knew that I came from a poor family and had a father that was serving a life sentence for beating my mother. Finding this out, I am sure that they would just assume that I was just as horrible of a person. If I had to choose one person that I am closest to, it would be my mother.
She was very rude to him and would not even speak to him. It was not until Derek finally cracked and had told his mother that Morso was the only reason he was still alive and he was the one person that was always there for him and he was like family to Derek, that she realised there was nothing bad about Morso. The thing that made it the hardest was when his mother sent them to school almost as soon as they had returned. They were not ready for school or anything like that, it was even hard for them to try and socialise with new people. Derek and Morso’s lives had been so unstructed, that the common school setting was not appropriate for them.

Mary: I love that you feel free and that you are open to try new things, I am just worried that you are going too far. Counselor: Elmer, do you know what event Mary feels may be too much? Elmer: I do not know if it was the first thing that upset her, but after our little disagreement a few weeks ago at the resort is when she started seeing you. Counselor: Mary, is that the first event that upset you?
Dear Mother, I guess I haven’t been much of a daughter these last months, after I ran out like I did and didn’t call or write. I’m sorry for running out and leaving you like that. I was mad and I needed to get away. Me and you’ll never see eye to eye about that producer and the letter he said he’d send. I guess you’ll believe what you’re going to believe and I’ll believe in myself.
I was surprised at how aggravated I was when I was reading because Hal ad Claire didn’t believe her. Catherine kept this big secret from everyone and when she finally decides to open up and tell them they don’t believe her. I can relate to her and I can understand why she would be so hurt and storm off. I have personally been in many situations like this because all my life people have underestimated me. At one point in time in my life one of my teachers told me that I would never graduate or attend college and that I would most likely be knocked up before my junior year.
They raised six kids and really did not want to raise another one; this resulted in them giving her anything her heart desired. When I read “The Lesson” I felt like the kids who were wishing they could have just one expensive toy, while she was the kid that got all the toys in the entire store. I felt like Sylvia saying, “Who are these people that spend that much for performing clowns and $1,000 for toy sailboats?” (461). Even though she was spoiled with everything but love, it took me a while to realize that what I had was far

He is in such denial of needing guidance that he sometimes acts even more like a child than a becoming of
SHARING Some of my childhood memories are gone, but what I do remember makes me glad I don’t remember all of it... At six years of age a child’s voice doesn’t really hold any merit when it comes to where they should or want to be in such an unforgiving world. I knew my mum wanted me there but a world that only pays attention to money won’t stop to pay attention to the whims of an insignificant life. When my mother’s financial problems began I went to live with my father, and his wife. From the beginning it was clear that I was going to receive no affection from the trog. My father was often gone on business trips, leaving me alone to defend against the abusive cow who took her angers – for not having custody of her own children
SINGULAR EXPERIENCE CHARISSE HUDSON ENGLISH 121: ENGLISH COMPOSITION 1 RACHEL ORR March 11, 2013 1 Singular Experience Becoming a mother is something that most women dream of, just not at the age of sixteen.
