In the book Jane Eyre, written by Charlotte Bronte, Jane (the main character) has always had a rough life. Ever since she was young she has been abused by others and ordered around by her head mistresses. Now she is older and has a job in Thornfield, working for Mr. Rochester, which allows her to take care of herself. Jane has grown a lot from all these former lives at Gates head and at Lowood, and has recognized this change. She now has strength, not physical strength but more mental strength; she now has the ability to accept. Not only has Jane gained strength but something much more than strength, she has gained the passion and feeling of love. Love is on of the reasons for this strength she has acquired, this feeling of love has opened her up as she interprets here, "... my thin crescent destiny seemed to enlarge; the blanks of existence were filled up; my bodily health improved; I gathered up flesh and strength" (Bronte, 149). Jane, at first, did not accept this love, in which she shares with no other than Mr. Rochester. This feeling was a new feeling to Jane, she had to learn to accept it, she's not sure weather or not the feelings are okay, knowing Mr. Rochester's is much higher in the Caste System. Jane used her mental strength to help her accept that this is just her feelings. She grew to accept this love and to accept everything and everyone around her.
