(p.83) When Willy first heard this from his boss, that is a man younger than him begins to cry. A man his age working in a company that long doesn't really deserve to be fired. It makes his life seem a waste, and makes him imagine himself as a failure. "I was fired and I am looking for a little good news to tell your mother, because the woman has waited and suffered." (p.107) Willy is clueless of what is to come of his family and feels he has let everyone down.
With this comes his resentment towards everyone around him. Holden Caulfield, with a few exceptions, has never seen someone for who and what they truly are, but instead looks at everyone as a phony. He states, “One of the biggest reasons I left Elkton Hills was because I was surrounded by phonies. That 's all.” (17). Holden especially has a true resentment towards his parents that is caused by Allies death.
I hated the way that my father was too busy providing for us physically that he never had time to provide for us emotionally. I hated my mother for her sickness, and how she could never spend time with me due to being bed-ridden. I harbored contempt for my siblings and their lack of regard for the reality of what had happened. I pushed away my friends because I thought that they didn’t understand and that they had abandoned me in my darkest hour. It would not be long before those relationships were nearly severed from my life, and I would be all alone in my mind, inside a prison of resentment and fury I had created for
Brads kids began to hate us and tried to make my brother and my life hell. They would do stuff they knew that would make their dad mad and give the blame to us. The more and more we got in trouble the worse it would get, first it was screaming in our faces and pushing us around but push turns to shove. He began hitting us when he had a fit about either how we act or what we did. I have never let him hit my little brother, so I would take the hits for him.
I didn’t understand why they cared so much about where I was going or why I couldn’t go hang out with my friends. I remember all the times I cried because they didn’t let me go out—because it was dangerous—or when they didn’t let me sleep over my friend’s house. But that was the most of my problems as a child. Yet, I still saw their overprotection as horrific and annoying, because I saw all the
He should live his lonely old age," I thought. There were many reasons why I hated my father. He was quick-tempered, selfish, and he easily beat and kicked me, because he wanted to have his own way in everything. Though I had not been such a bad child, I was often scolded and knocked about by him since I was a small child, so I was afraid of him, and I really had contempt for him. There was one more reason why I hated my father; it was my name "Taro", given me by my father "Taro" is a very simple name.
To begin with Sammy’s biggest problem is that I believe that he is too young to understand what his is doing. We did stupid things when we were young, but quitting your job is something else. He thought that by quitting his job he was going to get all this attention from the girls. On the contrary he got none at all and on top of that lost his job. After everything settled inside of him, he realized what an idiot he is and felt that emptiness inside of him.
They did not acknowledge, accept, or have patience with each other’s grief which led to the collapse of their marriage, breaking a lifelong promise between husband and wife. In Hamlet, he was torn over his father’s death and wanted to get revenge on the person who caused his great suffering. All in all, strong emotions of annoyance, sadness, and hate can definitely make one fail to acknowledge the difference between right and wrong.
Unfortunately these parents do not see their children as perfect and will install the feelings of worthlessness and ugliness. BDD sufferer Doug Tyrrell says his abusive father, along with other stressful situation in his life were the cause of his BDD. “I was a jittery nervous person. I had a father that use to yell at me all the time. He called me stupid so many times I thought that was my middle name” (Tyrrell).
He even got bolder about it and soon went as often as he liked" (p. 18). I believe that separated parents can really affect so badly a family; and like in many cases, this happened in Essie Mae's. I think George Lee, who was her eight year old uncle, was one of the most negative persons during her childhood. This boy, who was supposed to take care of Essie Mae and the other kids, was a total bad model for her and that's also why she hated him. Many times this kid did hit them for any reason and he never cared about them.
