While Mrs Hopewell was going on as business as usual her comments about others Hulga especially and her judgments affect Hulga and a negative way which can be seen as the causation for their bad relationship During a meal one night Hulga stands up and yells Woman Do you ever look inside Do you ever look inside and see what you are not God she had cried sinking down again and staring at her plate Malebranche was right we are not our own light We are not our own light 3 As seen by this quote Hulga is upset that Mrs Hopewell talks about others in a derogative way implying that she is perfect and others have flaws This quote also displays a view in which Mrs Hopewell seems to be the star the one in which the world revolves around how she keeps things going and makes things good again when in reality she sometimes makes things worse Mrs Hopewells bad relationship with Hulga may have started with the fact that Hulga may have felt like a disappointment because things are said in the short story such as You could not say My daughter is a philosopher 3 or Hulga could have felt this way because Mrs Hopewell felt Hulga was rude child-like and often made things worse than they could be The way Mrs Hopewell perceived Hulga can be summed up in a couple of sentences Mrs Hopewell thought it was idiotic and showed simply that she was still a child She was brilliant but she didnt have a grain of sense It seemed that Mrs Hopewell that every year she grew less like other people and more like herself bloated rude and squint-eyed 3 All the things thought and assumed about Hulga by Mrs Hopewell leads to more distance between the two family members and shows how judgment can affect those around you
