The internal change in Pip began as he started to play with Estella. She would tell him that he was to “coarse” for her, while Miss Havisham would constantly remind Pip that he was not good enough for her beautiful Estella. Pip begins to contemplate his role as an indentured slave for his family when he becomes apprenticed, and does not like the path in life that he is on. He begins to study himself on becoming a gentleman so that he can win Estella’s love and prove to her that he is not too coarse. This changes Pip into thinking like a snob and alters his perception of every one around him as beneath him now. Pip shows his change when he returns from Satis House after being treated like a “dog” and turns his anger onto Joe for him being so coarse.
This brings out a true turn around in Pip from once respecting Joe for him having to put up with Mrs. Joe as he did, to Pip resenting Joe for being a blacksmith. The feeling of contempt towards the trade intensifies as Pip feels guilty for feeling ashamed of Joe on their visit together to see Miss Havisham. Pip begins to show more and more contempt towards becoming an apprentice, which truly shows when Miss Havisham decides to “reward” him by sponsoring him. She feels that she has done a good thing for Pip, but he really sees it as a punishment. Since he is becoming coarser, he will never win Estella, exactly what Miss Havisham has been propagating in his head.
The other change Pip has been going through is the reoccurrence of his secrets. Pip being a young boy has a lot of secrets he has to keep. The first noticeable one is when he steals from Mrs. Joe to help the Magwitch and keeps it a secret from her and the police. He first notices the guilt and how bad it feels to have to lie. The lie reemerges as he sees the man in the pub and then as the weapon used against Mrs.

Joe is the shackle and chain of Magwitch. He then is caught in lie when he tells Mrs. Joe how good it is over at Miss Havisham, but then goes on to tell Joe how much he dislikes it. Joe gives him a good piece of advice of how bad it feels to tell lies and makes Pip feel even guiltier. Pip only being a young man has a lot on his shoulders. He is carrying an immense amount of guilt around with him accompanied by never feeling like he going to be good enough.
I can draw a connection with Pip because at a young age I had a lot of pressure on me to succeed as my sister did. I was five years younger but everyone expected me to be just like her. I did not want to be just like I felt I could be better than her. Nobody believed I could at the time, but I proved them wrong on my own terms and not theirs. Pip need to come in connection with himself and not have to prove things to these other people, especially Estella. expectastons.
