Jane Eyre totally reproaches Mrs. Reed, which shows us signs of the woman that Jane Eyre could be. That confrontation shows us Jane Eyre's strong character. (This trait will be suppressed by Lowood. There she will learn modesty, control, propriety, and respect. It also teaches a little too much subservience; know your servant place in society.) At the same time, she does develop her first friend, loving relationship with another. Bessie reaches out to her in a purely loving way.
