The story The Star which was written in 1970s is trying to say that we need to understand the truth of our fate rather than put on blinders and quit refusing everything else that we dont want to see In the story The Necklace written by Guy De Maupassant the woman worked herself to the bone for ten years trying to pay off the debt used to pay for the necklace she lost at the ball The woman in this story is a poor pretty woman who thought she deserved a better life than one that she already had The main character in this story is a woman named Louis the daughter of simple working class man Both stories include a sub theme of a hope for a better life in which all men were created equal and all the ugly injustices in the world would cease to exist But the cold hard fact is that we humans have this innate sense of optimism which blocks our thinking for reality because without it we would have no reason for living In the case of the woman in the story The necklace the object being the necklace which she eventually loses and tries to replace Instead of hiding the truth and facing the music which was harder to take than when she lied The old adage which says What a tangled web weave when we first start to deceive We humans cant handle the truth We think we know what is the truth What that really is just bullshit Its arrogance-playing tricks on our minds making us think we are in control of our lives If we really were in control of our lives then why cant we control every little aspect of it that gives discomfort Because we cant because we dont know how and eventually the truth will show that is we dont what the truth really
