“I was always treated as if I had insisted on being born in opposition to the dictates of reason, religion, and morality, and against the arguments of my best friends.” Pip says this as he is angry with his upbringing. It shows great significance as it sets Pips mindset through half of the story until he gains more confidence. This sums up Pips emotions about himself after he had his heart broken by Estella. It shows us a sense of guilt and that in Pips mind, the world despises of his existence. He could also have gained this mindset from being treated poorly by someone.
