So far I have seen a lot of Growth in Janie’s character. A lot in her live has drastically changed. From where we left off she started to realize the way she was treated by her husband was not love. He began to try and mask his own insecurities by trying to shine a light on hers. He would purposely try and put her down and make her feel small and helpless. But, then he began to get sick and tired. That didn’t stop him from continuing to shame her.
Eventually he got to the point where he was close to death. He was the Mayor of the town and a very powerful and authoritative man s this effected the town greatly. On his death bed Janie was able to confront him about the way he treated her and how he was the insecure one. I think this provided closure for Janie and overall made her more confident, reassured women.
After his death Janie was able to start living her best live. Her husband had restricted her from doing things that made her feel young and like her self. So she was able to start embracing those things about her. Eventually she met a new man who truly loves her and cared for her. They moved out of the town and Janie is now thriving and happier. Honestly I think the best thing for Janie might have been to be on her own for a little bit longer. But, I am happy that she is flourishing and growing as a character.
