How would I write a letter as Pip, apologizing for leaving Joe behind and for getting caught up in a world that is unworthy of Joe's values?

By the end of the novel, Pip has learned an important lesson about values and acheiving goodness. he suddenly regrets being apart from joe and biddy. compose a letter of apology that Pip might write to Joe. In the letter, Pip should express his regrets for having stayed away from joe so long and for getting caught up in a world that is unworthy of Joe's values. The letter should reveal Pip's new understanding of life and importance of true friendships. It has to be a letter but if not just try to answer the focal point of the question!

We can't write a letter for you. Our service is to offer advice as to how to complete your work, not to do it for you.

If you have to write a letter to Joe, I think it would certainly have a tone in it that notes that Joe is right and Pip has been wrong. I think Pip would focus on the facts that he got carried away with the idea that he could have been destined for Estella and a finer, more luxurious lifestyle. He might have thought this because Miss Havisham kept inviting him over as a kid, and even as he got older, they had opportunities to get together that didn't reveal she wasn't his benefactor.

Pip might also write about how his choice to often stay at the Blue Boar instead of Joe's house was really arrogant. Pip would probably use many words similar to arrogant to express the way he has treated Joe.

Pip would likely also note that in spite of his failure to be kind to Joe, Joe has remained kind as evidenced by him taking care of Pip when Pip grew sick. Pip should be grateful for Joe not holding anything against him.
