Is this citation correct?

  1. You should phrase the first sentence like this:
    1. Regardless of how misery transforms a person, many people want to get rid of the feeling.
    The second sentence is okay, although I would suggest changing things to committing actions that seem out of the ordinary.
    The third sentence is okay and I believe the citation is correct but I'm not completely sure. Check a website and if your essay is in MLA format, you should click on that and go from there. Good luck!
