Hello, everyone! Confession Saturday is a new weekly feature, in which we will have the chance to express our feelings towards certain characters. This time of the week we will choose one character and write to him/her about all the things we would like to say. We can explain why we like or dislike each character, which of his/her actions we don't understand and generally whatever comes to mind.
So, for the first Confession Saturday I'm choosing Miss Emma Woodhouse from Emma by Jane Austen.
many people hate you and I can't blame them for that. Your actions don't recommend your character, although you never mean ill. You have a certain status and education and I can understand why you needed distractions, I would be bored as well in your position, but matchmaking isn't the best thing to do. Especially when you try to convince Harriet that she loves men that she really doesn't. Poor Harriet is naive and innocent, you could make her believe anything, but in this way you don't respect her. She's your friend!
But, I have to admit that you were never unfair towards Jane Fairfax. Frank is the only person at blame here and you forgave him too easily. Flirting with him was just another distraction for you and any pain you may have caused it was done unintentionally. So, you shouldn't feel sorry. This is something that Jane and Frank have to figure out for themselves.
What I really want to say to you is that you are a lucky woman and I'm jealous! Mr. Knightley is a good man, loves you, but will always tell you when you're wrong. He understands your intentions and tries to make you understand why he disapproves some of your actions. An ideal partner should possess all those qualities. I really hope you listen to him more!
This is Confession Saturday for this week! Feel free to participate! If you are interested in doing so, then let me know so I can add a Linky tool :)
