|But is that really a "fault"?

in consequence of the missive, Anne's fault, penned by Frances G
Lack of self-esteem isn't really a fault, it's a result of a poor upbringing. Aside from her mother, who died when Anne was at a critical age (and when she wasn't even home with her), Anne has had no true affection from anyone, other than Lady Russell and then from Captain Wentworth.
When that affair ended badly, she must have felt even smaller in her own home, wounding a man she loved and possibly not receiving any sympathy from LR for the emotional distress it caused her.
When Wentworth comes back into her life and was coldly polite and indifferent to her, I don't blame her for retreating further into her shell. One of the people she loved and felt love from is rejecting her. I'm surprised she managed to play the piano at all that evening; I wouldn't have been able to function.
As others have said, I don't think she needs a SUTH, she needs a hug!
