The Warriors of Kyoshi
Aang and the gang go to Kyoshi Island, an island named after a previous Avatar and meet an unusual set of warriors.
When faced with a lot of adoring fans Aang says he won't let the fame get to his head.
He says “I’m just a simple monk”
In the end the fame gets to his head
"When asked by people how His Holiness the Dalai Lama sees himself, he replies that he is a simple Buddhist monk" (Routine Day, Dalai Lama website)

By forcing Aang away the audience sees that as wrong
Negative feelings connected to Buddhist idea of detachment for the audience
Bato of the Water Tribe
Aang and his friends run into a member of the Southern Water Tribe Fleet, Bato, who knows where Katara's and Sokka's father may be. Aang reacts poorly to the possibility of his friends leaving him.
When faced with the possibility of his friends leaving him and the map with the location of Katara's and Sokka's dad, Aang keeps the information to himself.
