Great Expectations

To what extent do you agree with Pip that sorrow, unworthiness, and penitence can be 'vanities'? How? Give an example of what you mean.

Chapter 49-50, i need to write a journal with this so give good information but not too much

Pip figured out that most people love to exaggerate their sorrow and the wollow in it. Sorrow, unworthiness, and penitence are basic human emotions that people often use to make themselves feel better. You no like when someone writes "I'm so worthless" as their Facebook status. THe resulting 60 messages all appeal to that person's vanity like say, "No you are so pretty and talented." Pip means that overtly feeling sorry for oneself is only an invitation for validation from others.
