Love exists in our life with its complexity. According to Giddens  love can be occurred based on two things, namely passionate love and romantic love. Sometimes people are trapped by love and they are stuck in an un-idealized life. This illustration is often presented in literature. Dürrenmatt's drama Der Besuch der alten Dame illustrates the struggle of love, violence and injustice experienced by a woman, Claire. She suffered physical and mental for a long time because of love. But she was able to rise up. She did not give her life to destiny. In adversity quotient theory, Claire can be categorized as climber, the figure who never give up until reaching the top. Stoltz  divides human into three types, quitter, camper, and climber. Quitter stops in the middle of climbing process. A camper never reaches the top but he is satisfied with what has been achieved and not trying to reach the top. Climber is the core of Adversity Quotient (AQ). Climber is always optimistic in looking at opportunities, and hopes behind the impossibility and always trying to go ahead and reach the top. Claire is a climber, because she can reach the top by finding the justice.
