Firstly, in the novel, the Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka, Gregor Samsa is a travelling salesman who hates his job but is forced to keep it in order to support his family and pay off his father’s debts.

They treated him well as long as he could offer something of value to them but, once he no longer could they just felt resentment towards him.

He wants to become a part of an ordinary society and to move forward; however, his deficiency of self-esteem and knowledge held him back from progressing. He used to live with his mother and stepfather in upstate New York, but he had some serious issues with them that had an impact on him to become who he is. He never seems to have had a proper family who inspired him to become better in life. For example, his parents weren't convenient role models for Bone because they drank plenty of alcohol, revealed marriage issues, and didn't seem to be involved in pushing him forward because they relinquished him. Worst of all, his step-father harassed him since he was little and he was incapable of expressing himself about the harassment to his mother.
