Narrator is critical about his life style during Cultural Revolution and he is critical why he is teaching school when he is not qualified to be a teacher. On other hand he is forgiving for this period because he does not mention it by name. First, Narrator was critical about his life style during this period. Narrator life was difficult at the begging of Cultural Revolution; his family was arrested and killed by the government, because they speak out against government, government took all of his family property so he grow up as orphan child (Cheng 59). During this time narrator don’t have anything to eat, sometimes he stay all day without eating anything if he get lucky some of his classmates take him home so he can eat with them and stay over there for overnight.
He felt more rejected in life throughout primary school and high school where he didn’t have any friends or have a social life besides paying people to come to his apartment which influenced him to begin to drink heavily. According to the social control theory If Jeffrey had made friends in school or when he joined the army or any close relationships this would have prevented him from committing all those crimes. When his victim would try to leave he would strike them and prevent them from leaving as the loneliness and fear of rejection grew. At a young age Jeffrey satisfied his inner self from the loneliness by disfiguring dead animals which he later on carried on by disfiguring the corpse of his victims.
“You could tell, for one thing, that they never went anywhere swanky for lunch. It made me so damn sad when I thought about it” (Salinger 114). Holden admits being sad for them and then realizes that “it wasn’t too important” (Salinger 114). Even though he knows that this shouldn’t be depressing because it’s not important, he rebuts by stating “but it made me sad anyway” (Salinge... ... middle of paper ... ... during his childhood. An example of a traumatic experience is when he visits and old professor, Mr. Antolini.
He fasted more often and longer than any other monk, but still found no satisfaction living this lifestyle (Haught 47). He needed to find something else to bring about peace within because living among the monks was a form of punishment which failed to bring happiness to Gautama. Therefore, one day Gautama left the monks and ate a normal meal. This self-punishing was keeping him from solving the problem of human suffering. Gautama, now alone, sat under a fig tree, called the Bodhi tree, and vowe... ... middle of paper ... ...ing people from suffering.
For the next two days, I did not speak or communicate with my brother, a feat in itself considering we lived in an apartment. I look back and am ashamed of the way I treated my brother. I also look back and remotely see myself as a desperate Green peace kid trying with one last throw of the dice to save his sanity, by throwing his anger towards them, those who obviously couldn't see the predicament - although that would be a purpose altogether too important to imagine. However, as we all know, this is not an isolated incident. Arguments and fights happen again and again.
She never says anything pleasant to Pip and I think that she thinks he interrupts with her relationship with Joe. Mrs Joe says that Pip was not to be "Pompeyed" - pampered. This was what most parents do do to their own children, but Mrs Joe makes sure Pip doesn't have an easy life. He does occasional jobs for local people in which he was to "frighten birds, or pick up stones, or do any such job". Even though it is Pip whom earns the money, he doesn't get a share of it as Mrs Joe kept a money box "on the kitchen shelfâ€¦..were to be contributed eventually towards liquidation of the National Debt."
He does as little work as possible. He doesn’t work to the best of his abilities. He doesn’t do the job completely and with full interest, which is why he can never stick to one job. When he realizes he is in desperate need of money, he decides to become serious about finding another job. For example, when his parent’s forced him to pay for his room, board, and laundry, he was obligated to work because he was broke.
Bartleby is a lazy student who refuses to study simply because he would prefer not. Although his teacher, Mr. Smith, automatically assumes that Bartleby failed the final exam he just took, Mr. Smith could have reasoned that he has sufficient evidence to support his belief. Mr. Smith has seen that Bartleby shows little interest in the class, that he has poor study habits and has consistently failed all his previous exams, and that just about enough questions were incorrect on the portion of the exam that Mr. Smith did have time to grade to warrant a failing grade. But because final grades are due and Mr. Smith runs out of time to finish grading, he marks an ‘F’ on Bartleby’s test without actually calculating the score or even realizing that he has sufficient evidence to support his belief that Bartleby failed. Later, Mr. Smith comes to find out that his belief was true, thus once again confirming Mr. Smith’s time-tested bias that students who have failed in the past are perpetual failures.
He could never see himself like a Stud Trader. This is probably true for many traders, and any trader can learn from my stepfather’s blocked experiences. My stepfather never considered that he might need to work on his state of mind and the psychology that underlies trading. He simply believed that studying chart patterns without any written notes or JPEG pictures was sufficient. He believed that the entire game of trading was learning how to read the charts, and therefore he had little use for techniques that would neutralize his fear of loss.
In Chinese culture, it is necessary to subject one’s own desire for a greater value to the family. If I don’t follow my parents order, it will brings shame to the family. There were moment in my life where I would follow the tradition and culture as a nice son, but I am tired of following the tradition. Sometimes, we have no clue that we live under the internalized oppression from culture and elder. Internalized
