in consequence of the missive, How did Anne have a change of heart here?, penned by JanELT
I think that before this, Anne had some real doubts in her own ability to make decisions. I think that she had felt for YEARS that she was very wrong to have been persuaded by Lady Russell to give Frederick up, so that MUST spill over into her judgment in other situations. I think she thought: "How can I trust my own judgment in ANY problem; look how badly bungled the biggest decision of my life, by being persuaded! I can't be trusted to make up my own mind." (Not a quote from the book, just my thoughts on Anne's mind in this matter.)
So, for Anne to start thinking that it might be good to be "persuadable" in some cases, is a change of heart.
