The Bell Jar People's lifestyles are shaped through their failure and success in their own relationships with each other. The writer Sylvia Plath shows that in the publication, The Bell Jar. This can be the direct outcome of the lack of service in the loved one, lack of support and encouragement, and lack of self confidence and jealousy in Esther's life in the The Bell Jar. It had been shaped through her success and failures in her personal relationships involving others and herself. Through life, we often eliminate a person we loved and cared deeply for and encouraged us through life. This can be attested by the reduction of a loved one when Esther's dad died when she was twenty eight.

This is known when Doreen; Esthers co-worker at the modeling magazine begins to lose contact with Esther through life "Doreen is dissolving... not one of them mean anything anymore" (Sylvia Plath pg.17) Doreen begins to get rid of contact with Esther during life, just once Doreen had opened new doors to her. Esther was coming through a really tough time in life, when Doreen began drifting away from Esther. Once more, Esther experienced the loss and support of a excellent friend and advocate.
