After being exposed to the ups and downs that left a deep scar in the author, she concludes that the physical world stands as an obstacle in front of online-relationships. Overall, the author did a good job in presenting her idea and supporting it using personal experience and detailed descriptions. Yet she fails when restricting her support to her personal encounters and lacked power due to the many logical fallacies presented earlier such as her constant generalization, emotional appeals and finally the lack of counter argument. In the end, the reader is left with questions concerning virtual love, the physical world, and the ultimate desire to attain happiness since it’s quite hard to imagine that someone would be convinced with the idea of Daum simply due to her own experience.
Active listening is paying full attention to the speaker and shows you are concerned (Janasz, Dowd, Schneider, 2015, p. 136). While using active listening, the author asks questions about her friend 's struggles and expresses she understands how her friend is feeling about the pregnancy problems. Additionally, active listening has the potential to enhance relationships (Janasz, Dowd, Schneider, 2015, p. 136). As the author genuinely focuses on the friend’s problems she offers time and support, which builds a bond and strengthens their trust. There are different characteristics of active listening, however, one of the most important characteristics is to not talk too much (Janasz, Dowd, Schneider, 2015, p. 136).

Toni Morrison chose to add the effects Beloved’s death had on Denver to amplify the change in her by the end of the book. Although apart the effects are quite simple, together they connect to form an intricate web. Fear leads to obsession; obsession leads to denial; denial leads to isolation; isolation leads to loneliness. But just like any other web, once one part is broken, the others soon deteriorate as well.
She felt like she was accepted and she belonged.

She had great pleasure in hearing Frank Churchill talked of; and for his sake, greater pleasure than ever in seeing Mr. and Mrs. Weston; she was very often thinking of him. But, on the other hand, she could not admit herself to be unhappy, nor, after the first morning, to be less disposed for employment than usual; she was still busy and cheerful; and, pleasing as he was, she could yet imagine him to have faults,” (Austen 264).

She rejected proposals- first from the man she had a brief relationship with (Tom Lefroy) who had no money and later the proposal from a man who had money (Harris Bigg – Wither) but could not win Jane’s love. Though it has been very recent that Jane Austen’s works have become mainstream, for some she has bee... ... middle of paper ... ...learns from the mistakes and manipulating others may prove to be malicious. Emma’s stubborn attitude and an innate desire to better others also allow her to stoop her social class where she can help others in being well off in society. Even though she is constantly conscious of her social standing she still does as she pleases. Although Jane Austen never herself made any distinctions between her own heroines but it is easily observed that Pride and Prejudice was the first novel drafted by Austen and Emma was drafted when Austen had a little more taste of life and success in life.
Even the closest of friends can be found online. This is because, contrary to what many parents believe, the internet isn’t a trap. Often times, it’s full of people looking to connect. Instead of focusing on how the friendship is fabricated, we should focus on how impactful it is. That’s truly what matters, not the
Sherry Turkle explains that as people in technologically advanced communities feel alone, they turn to connecting through social media and the Internet, but are only further perpetuating the problem because they gain a false sense of not being alone. Nevertheless, she explains that society is not too far gone, and there are actually wonderful outcomes of a connected community as long as people are more self-aware of their relationships with others and themselves. After all, there are amazing uses of technology that do not need abandoned simply because of the common pitfalls of modern society. Turkle herself prefaces her speech by saying that her daughter had just messaged her well wishes for her presentation (Turkle). People across the world can find communities out there with plenty in common with them or talk to relatives who are a world away.
Miss Hawkins makes her first appearance in Highbury through conversations between other Highbury residents. Miss Bates being a busybody is distraught that Mr. Knightley was the first to inform others of the news of their engagement, but she is otherwise quite excited about the new match. There is a mixture of opinions on Augusta and Mr. Elton's engagement: Jane Fairfax displays little concern in the engagement, Mr. Woodhouse feels that Mr. Elton is too young to settle and is convinced that marriage removes people from his life, Harriet conceals her true emotions and shows modest attention to the news. Since few people of High... ... middle of paper ... ...ore of a rebound companion than a true love. Another instance is when Mrs. Elton takes Jane as her protégé, comparable to Emma taking Harriet as hers.
When the audience first meets Mrs. Linde, she seems to be quite a contrast to the childish Nora. Nora is immature and irresponsible while Mrs. Linde come across as being intelligent and demure. When the two are conversing, Mrs. Linde's quiet, reserved manner is dominated by Nora's bold and frivolous behavior. Nora constantly talks about herself and her life, even when she insists that she is "not going to be selfish today, I'm just going to think about you" (Ibsen, 373). She then decides that she "must" tell her good friend something; she goes into speaking about her and her husband's good luck and good fortune, which is enhanced by Mrs. Linde's bad luck and her poverty (Ibsen, 373).
