There are so many ways and reasons that people can change. You can change for love, passion, or to fit in. There are many more things that can change a person. I’m taking two stories and looking if the characters changed or stayed the same.
There have been several life altering events in my life, but one that stands out is when I went with my parents to pick up my brother from school. It was a normal trip until we got back on the interstate after getting gas. Traffic came to an abrupt halt, and heads turned to see the cause. First we saw a motorcycle helmet laying on the side of the road. The plastic panel was broken, and the helmet itself was nearly in two. No less than half a mile up the road, you see an ambulance, a police car, and a firetruck all blocking off a small square. While driving by, we saw a pink skeet strewn over something on the side of the road. Upon closer inspection, I saw a bloodied hand and a large pool of blood sticking out from under the sheet. At that time I was 15, and I had just passed my driving permit exam. Similarly to Duncan, that event has stayed with me ever sense, and when I see someone on the interstate on a motorcycle, thats what I am reminded of. After an event so traumatic, you would assume the news would say something. After all, this person was someone’s child, maybe someone’s parent. I never saw anything to speak of this
Tom Sawyer and I have had many different changes throughout our lives through good and bad we have learned a lessons in our lives. According to “Stressing and complaining will change nothing. Take action, make a change, and never look back. In the novel The Adventures of Tom Sawyer there has been much change not only Tom experiences but also me in my grade school year.
I believe that, events in a person's life changes who they are. In The Good Earth, by Pearl S. Buck, the character Wang Lung changes throughout his life. Wang Lung starts as a hardworking man in the beginning, as his life goes on he starts to lose his interest in the land, than gains interest in the land. He’d changed as a person thought his life, but not always in a good way.
Throughout time, everyone goes through changes, whether they’re big or small. Some people become a completely different person. In the story “Touching Spirit Bear” by Ben Mikaelsen, a boy named Cole changes his whole attitude towards others. Cole becomes a different person at the end of the story. Cole Matthews has a dramatic change of heart. Cole changes when he had to soak in the freezing pond, carry the ancestor rock and dance “the dance”. He also changes when he invites peter to the island, he also changes when peter accepts is apology later in the story. Everyone at sometime in their life will change.
People can change people change all the time sometimes they change for the good sometimes they change for the bad. How does a situation affect how someone changes. Can someone change for the good out of a bad situation. In Night, Elie Wiesel's faith, relationships, and personality all change due to one situation the holocaust.
I have you ever been permanently changed in your life? Ben Mikaelsen wrote a book called Touching Spirit Bear. Cole was a jerk sent an island that would change him. That island lead him to see the spirit bear who attacked cole and injured him badly. The attack made Cole even stronger and better. Cole still had a lot of anger in him so Garvey and himself help Cole control his anger and be calm until he was. Cole had made permanent change from the island,the spirit bear, and Gravey.
Leo Tolstoy once said, “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” In literature and in life many people change who they are, whether it’s for better or for worse. Someone who has changed for worse would be a man named Jason Brown, but someone who has changed in a good way would be John Proctor from the Crucible.
A person's life can be changed forever in an instant. So many reason are changing people lives everyday for better or worse. There are many reasons including, an eye-opening event, an act someone did, and a new character entering someone's life.
For every change within a society, personal changes with “self” must happen. These social changes are important to people while, people who don’t benefit from it think changes within the self isn’t important for social changes. Personal change is a journey a person takes of discovering something within themselves and acting upon a social change. That social change is society evolving to better ways. Jane Goodall talks about her experience in a moment of truth with self being absent in a moment of need in her writing titled In the Forest of Gombe, where she spends a few weeks in the forest following chimpanzees has helped her cope with her grief of her husband. She comes to the realization that her “self” was nonexistent and everyone in
My wife is my rock, she has been since the day I met her eight years ago. Our relationship has definitely changed over the years. But she has always adapted to the change better than I have. Growing up, I would have never guessed that I would rely on someone as much as I do with her. What I mean is, I have always thought of myself as strong, independent, and felt as though I didn’t need to rely on anyone else. She openly recognizes me strengths, and seamlessly fills into my weaknesses. But after eight years, it has become extremely clear that I would be lost without her. Our marriage is not equal, I definitely take more than I give without question. More importantly, she gives without expecting anything in return. She provides me

Life experiences can change a person’s character. Those experiences can make a person better than they used to be, the characters will unlock a new mentality that they thought they never had. Also they better at conquering fears and obstacles. Characters in my novels go through lots of change as the stories progress. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson, events change the character’s views and behavior throughout the novels. In the novels The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Treasure Island, the main characters in the stories go through a change of personality from their adventures and journeys, encounters with obstacles and antagonists, and the completion of their trials.
Where do I even start? I wish you could come back and teach here at school! I miss your class and the way you teach. I hope your wife is doing better, your brother as well. I hope you’re doing okay too. When you left, I remember you telling the class everything you were going through, and it was a lot. I just wanted to let you know that you were dearly missed after you left. Many students kept asking when you would be returning to class, including myself. Even though I didn't get to have you as a teacher for a full semester, the short time I did have you impacted my life greatly. I still think about your presence a lot while at school, especially your road time sessions. Those were my favorite! I often think about what your reaction was to
In my life, I have been exposed to a challenge called change. Change can occur in many different ways and is dealt with in many different ways. I have come to the awareness that change can be the deepest of all things. I always thought that change occurred when you moved to a state or when you lost someone real close to you. Those are a challenge to change, yes, but change doesn’t have to occur over a climactic incident. It can just appear overnight when your brain winds up when it’s time to do something different. Even with friends that you used to have and know that move on. For example, most of my friends from elementary school, I don’t even talk to them anymore.
