His family issues along with his own personal issues are stressing him. This has led to him being depressed. At the same time, he feels pressured by his family to have a family of his own. Jose I believe is deeply stressed because he is having trouble fulfilling his role of being the breadwinner and taking care of his family (machismo) according to the video by Microtraining Associates (2004).

I also remember shopping for traditional Indian clothes and food at the Indian stores in that area. In recent years, most of the information I have heard about Langley Park has been negative. For example, when I mentioned the trip to Langley Park, one of my coworkers said when…

    Jon’s Hands Sometimes, one will never know someone’s story, but if their hands could talk, they would tell everywhere they have been and everything they have seen.
