Since Janet couldn’t make it to meetings they gave her what was “left over” and didn’t even keep her in mind. Janet was a hard worker and wanted to contribute to the group, but since she had been pre classified by her group she couldn’t fit in the way she wanted to. Life was basically a struggle for Janet and being in a group that did not consider her struggle made her feel more alone than ever. She finally snapped over the cafeteria incident. She stopped to get something to eat and saw her whole group meeting without her, she felt extremely unappreciated and knew the group members didn’t respect her contributions.
She often referred to the poet, John Donne, throughout the film to relate her illness to what she loved and studied all of her life. It served as symbolism, representing her view the quality of her life and ultimate mortality. She reflected to the times when she was uncompassionate towards her own students and compared it to the feeling of inhumanity she was experiencing in the hospital. As Vivian’s cancer progressed, she decides to continue various intensive chemotherapies under the care of doctor and former student, Jason Posner, who viewed her as less than a person and more as an objective. On the other hand, Susie Monahan, Vivian’s nurse, served as her advocate from the beginning of her treatments to Vivian’s death.
A main example from the book is that Melinda kept this huge secret held inside. She was too fearful to share it with anyone so instead she decided to keep it her secret. This turned out to be extremely detremental to her well being. It caused her grades to drop, she became an intravert, not wanting to speak to anyone or function properly as a teenager, she isolated herself from others and had no motivation to do anything. Melinda turned from being a loving young lady who had a close relationship with her parents to a recluse who became distant to her parents, friends and everyone.
From the beginning when we were first introduced to Dee, we find that she has changed her name to Wangero saying that Dee is “dead” because she didn’t think her name, Dicie, had any cultural significance and so she choice a name she felt suited her more. She says she couldn’t bear being named after people who oppress her. She has no connection or respect with her family. This is sad because she doesn’t like who she once was. Although she has learned a lot from her schooling and has a better knowledge than her mom & sister, I feel she possesses this know-it-all attitude about what heritage really is.
Orual never feels that she is loved by anyone, that is, until Psyche enters her life after Psyche’s mother dies giving birth to her. Orual takes it upon herself to become Psyche's guardian and to raise her. Orual loves Psyche more than anything, but her love is selfish and very possessive. Orual is tormented by the thought of having to ever give Psyche from her possession and she does everything in her power to prevent it. After first being separated from Psyche then becoming bitter from not seeing the same things as Psyche once reunited, I realized the tragedy was that not only did Orual never found the “love of the Gods,” she also never learned to love her life and accept herself as the person she was.
This was Jennie’s case she did not have any friends because they were all jealous of her (Cooney 104). She got depressed and could not take it anymore which led her to runaway (72). In order for not letting people affect us we need to have confidence in
She’s so angry about this that she can’t cry about it, although at some points she’s just trying to hold it in. She is in complete disbelief that john is dead “I saw him yesterday… don’t be stupid”. This is a very intense moment in the book, she has lost someone very close to her, and she doesn’t know how to handle it. The intense moment is when she finds out that he has passed away. What she goes through opens her eyes to realise how much life is worth
Nora is the most admirable character in the whole play. Back in the day when it takes place, it was unthinkable that a woman could leave her husband to obtain freedom. However, Nora had the courage to take the step forward and abandon the man she no longer loved. She chose to support herself and educate herself to be a better person. The marriage between her and Torvald was not a true marriage; they never understood each other and never talked about serious matters.
This shows just how weak her character was on the inside as she was unable to accept the set back and continue her usual (and very luxurious) way of life. Chronologically speaking, this was the very first loss of expectations in the book and serves as a permanent example to the rest of the characters of what the consequences may be if they rely too heavily upon their own expectations. Miss Havisham mainly dealt with her loss by becoming a recluse and hiding from the outside world from the comfort of Satis House. The other way she dealt with her extensive psychological pain was to take
