The outcome of their decisions has far-reaching consequences for themselves and others.Characters fail to communicate with others in decision-making processes, such as the wife in Breaking up Rebecca, who excludes her husband in her decision-making process and invites a sister to stay in their home. The result is ruined friendships and destructive characters with premium values placed on objects of their focus. Certainly not principles, or someone to die for.They disdain others, life, such as the tragic heroe in “Deadbeat Dad.” In “Unsatisfactory,” vanity and self-attainment drive the heroine.Since you will decide on a matter one way, or another, as heroine, or hero, don’t exclude communicating with someone who has a say in it, for you will regret it, hurt yourself and others.
