Since a young age, the protagonist had been dependent on a family that considered her inferior to them. Therefore, as constant undeserved punishments were imposed on her, she describes, “had I been a sanguine, brilliant, careless, exacting, handsome, romping child - though equally dependent and friendless - Mrs. Reed would have endured my presence more complacently,” (11).
