Exactly!! Some people just are innately bad people. No matter how kind you have been to them, they have hate in their heart and your kindness to them will never matter. Just be a good person and let them be them.
One of the major themes that seem to be emerging in Act I is the Role of Women. In the 1800s, women were supposed to be housewives and subordinate to their husbands. Nora, on the other hand, felt empowered in taking control of her own life when she payed for the trip to Italy, not her father. She takes pride in doing what is normally "a man's job" in that time period.
beautiful image - there is no higher form of life on Earth than man and woman and their children...respect life, respect life's Creator, respect yourself. Someone will take your baby if you can't, and be so very grateful for your gift.
