Repeated instances such as when he asked the RIAA person for enough money just for one pint—when the money was supposed to be for a cab to get he and his son back to the station without having to walk. Or even when his first child was born and he was too drunk for the hospital staff to interpret what he was saying he wanted to name his son. There are too many of the same repeated episodes—he gets a job, brings home money at first, then just stops altogether and uses it at the pub, he gets fired from his job, and his family is worse off now, they are forced to move or live off the kindness of others. It’s the same cycle over and over again. Lives are lost along the way—the innocents, the children.
My parents fight and argue but they have never talked about splitting up or getting divorced. My father suffered through that and it caused a lot of stress and tension. This stress hindered school and education which eventually put a hold on dreams. Although my father could not finish college, he provides everything possible so his children may attend college and expand their education. We may not understand the good that develops from hardships at the moment, but later in life we will see the significance they hold.
I don’t think Jeffery’s past paints a picture of these causes. However, no family is absolutely sterile and I guess there were some issues in the Dahmer family but where they enough to cause and individual to react as he did. There are definitely some factors that may have had a negative influence on Jeff’s life. His mother had various physical ailments and appeared to be high strung, coming from a background in which her father’s alcoholism deeply affected her life. His father stayed at work more often than he should to avoid turmoil on the home front.
Any time my brother starts to tattle on me, he forgets to mention the fact that he does drugs on the daily. Austin has never fully paid my parents or grandparents back for anything they’ve helped him pay for, whereas I have paid for everything. It frustrated me when my parents cannot see through my brother’s fakeness. Austin is a complete pain in the butt at work because he will specifically ask people if they have heard anything about me, just so he can tell my parents. I do not do drugs; I barely go out.
There was no time for extracurricular activities, or health watching, because he worked. He thought he could coast past the fact that he was overweight “because he didn’t smoke” (629). Many people worked under Phil in his position of power, so after he died three of the workers would be seriously considered to take over, but this was not mentioned in the obituary, either. Phil was survived by his wife who “already have” missed her husband, his eldest child who needed to “ask the neighbors what he (Phil) was like,” his second child who had “nothing to say” to her father when she saw him in his life, and his youngest child who “tried to mean enough to his father to keep him home.” (629-630). The preside... ... middle of paper ... ...ey didn’t want to hang out with people who would use them for money and not be around them for who they were.
He was the “only surviving child” of the poor couple, Henry H. Hershey and Fannie B. Snavely (Woodruff). Hershey’s parents “hardly [ever] saw eye to eye”; they were like day and night, vanilla and chocolate (Erdman). His mother had “a highly disciplined nature” because of her Mennonite faith, yet his father “was a worldly man who dreamed big dreams” and because of that, he always got “into trouble” (Erdman). Since Henry was unable to find a steady job, the Hershey family constantly moved around to different places (Woodruff). This resulted to Milton dropping out of school in fourth grade (Erdman).
My dad and I had always gotten along better, never disagreed with each other or got in screaming matches, until this dreaded senior year. I couldn’t even get along with my sweet, affectionate father because I developed such a bad attitude. When I say I disobeyed their rules, I mean their rules didn’t even apply to me. I completely disregarded them and did the opposite of what they told me to do. They set a curfew as to when I should come home at night in which I was an hour or more late.
Coley somewhat blames his wife for this. Coley put his family in great danger with the bills not being paid and him putting off jobs for something he thinks will become his gold mine and turns out not to. Throughout the episode I felt a great deal of sadness for the children that had to be involved in his mess of an addiction. Each child was suffering in their own way because he refused to quit crystal meth and would come home late at night therefore spending no time with his family. I think the child that was affected the greatest was his son.
In the psychodynamic viewpoint the non acceptance of his father was always a traumatic thing for him to deal with. His father never told him that he loved him and was never proud of him until his sign... ... middle of paper ... ... it is my feeling that it would be very difficult if not impossible to rehabilitate Johnny Cash. I hold this view because there were many efforts made to reach out to him while living and he had even done several treatment programs. He seemed at times to be very supportive in seeking help. His lifestyle however would make it extremely difficult for him to stay in a consistent treatment program.
Having an affair was one of his main problems-he could not put enough love into his family, so he put it anywhere else he could. He visited his mistress on business ventures, which is the only aspect of his life he truly appreciated. Therefore, his home life became full of lies, Biff saying that they “never told the truth for ten minutes.” Miller is, again, critiquing American households, since their typical values revolve more around money and presentation than a loving, kind, and caring home. Willy had a family who loved him, but he neglected to notice this, which lead to his unhappiness. Never placing any type of value of love and kindness can cause a person to become cold and bitter, which is exactly what Willy became.
