Why would he help Daisy have an affair if he was such an honorable gentleman? One reason he might’ve helped Gatsby and Daisy was because he knew Tom was an awful husband and person and Tom and Daisy’s marriage was unhealthy. He thought that Daisy deserved better and Gatsby could give her better than Tom. Another reason was because of the advice his father gave him. “Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.” Nick is a pretty tolerant person and tries not to judge people.
Self-acceptance and redemption are harder to achieve than forgiveness from others. When one feels redeemed, it means that they can be fully forgiven. Pip from Great Expectations is a great example of self-forgiveness and redemption because even after his family forgave him for the wrongs he committed, he still felt uneasy about himself until he cured himself of the disease he had: egocentricity. Richard Rodriguez’s character from his autobiography Hunger of Memory (however? ), has not displayed his self-realization because he is not aware that he has harmed people from his actions and because of that he has not matured.
It’s perfectly natural to have feelings like he has toward her but there came a time with him when he saw what he was going to do was not right. So he refrained and actually gained a friend.

He does not have a side where the audience can see he cares, but instead he has self-importance and shows no pity because he is doing his own life.

He “didn’t really like life at all.”(Vonnegut 102). This shows that although he is a survivor, life meant nothing because of what he must live with. He would welcome death because it would put him out of his misery and endless torture. Mr. Campbell from the novel
McCandless’ pride left his family in a state of grief and sorrow because he thought that taking risks only affected himself and not the people that care about him. Olav Ormseth, an Alaskan outdoorsman, comments on “Death of an Innocent” in Outside magazine, writing, “The real tragedy behind this story is what he left behind: grieving, bewildered family and friends. The hubris and narcissism with which he blindly launched into the wilderness are not things we can excuse.” McCandless believed that the privilege he enjoyed as a child negatively affected his ability to understand the meaning of life. This led him to change his identity and become a new person that was not affiliated with the old Chris McCandless. Ultimately, he ruined all of his relationships.
Brutus, even when his mind has good intention it is also littered with ignorance. Brutus had good intentions but his ignorance made him make not the best decisions. He had made many ignorant decisions because he did not want to listen to Cassius. The first time Brutus showed this trait was when Cassius warned Brutus many times about the danger of Mark Antony. Brutus simply thinks the good of people, not ever wondering if he does one action, if the other person might retaliate.

McCandless was living his life for himself. He wanted to be happy and it happened to upset his parents. Wanting your own happiness is not selfish it is your right. I don’t think that McCandless was trying to upset his family, he was just trying to make himself happy by doing what he wanted to do. One of the reasons that I believe McCandless did not keep in contact with his parents while he kept in touch with those he met along the way is because he was afraid of disapproval.
