    Please provide some example sentences showing what you mean.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    Welcome to the forum.

    Note my corrections above. It is important to follow these rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.

    Make the words you are querying stand out in some way. I have put quotation marks round them. As bhaisahab said, you need to give us some example sentences to show us what you want to say and where you are having problems.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: I am confusing with will and going to

    As others have said, some example sentences will help demonstrate your confusion, but here are some basic differences.

    Both are used to express the future, but we tend to use 'will' for spontaneous decisions, predictions, promises, and scheduled events.

    We tend to use 'going to' for future intentions or plans made before the prior moment (premeditated decisions).
