Lack of commitment in our society and bipolar disorder

 For a start, commitment means both dedication and promise. Lack of commitment happens when someone says one thing and does another. 

On the one hand, politicians get used to do this because they often promise that they will do what people want and finally they don’t, so people discover what they are really like and they protest. Nowadays, being a politician should be a difficult job as they are under scrutiny every moment. About teens, I don’t think that there is a great lack of commitment because each one is different from the others and it depends on everyone’s lifestyle.

On the other hand, I have read the book Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, where I saw the bipolar disorder that Dr Jekyll suffered. It is curious seeing how a person has different behaviours. The story tells probably about Deacon Brudie, who lived in Edinburgh. Its author, Robert Louis Stevenson wrote Treasure Island, A Child’s Garden of Verses, Kidnapped, too. 

All in all, I think that if you say one thing, you have to do it, like that, you’ll have a great success in your life. 


To begin with, Vincent van Gogh was a famous Dutch painter. He was born on 30th March 1853 in Zundert, which is in Netherlands and died on 29th July in Auvers-sur-Oise, France.

Since he was a child he was into the drawing and painting. When he became older, he turned to Religion, like a preacher in southern Belgium. Later he was keenly aware of modernist trends in art, music and literature. Theo, who was his younger brother, supported him financially. In 1886 he moved to Paris, where he discovered the French Impressionism movement.
He worked in too many artworks during his life; the majority created in his last two years, which had influence on 20th century art. He belonged to the Post Impressionist movement. 
About his ear, it is thought that he had a violent encounter with Gauguin, who he had some arguments with due to their different personalities. Van Gogh threatened him with a razor, and finally in a rage, he cut off most of his own right ear.
He committed suicide when he was 37 because he had a mental illness.

All in all, although it is curious that he sold only one painting during his life, I think he is a great painter and one of the most famous in the world besides his works like Starry Night, Sunflowers, Bedroom in Arles, Sorrow and Portrait of Dr Gachet....
