Has anyone read Jane Eyre need essay: At the end of Chapter 15, Jane uses sea imagery

At the end of Chapter 15, Jane uses sea imagery to describe her feelings: “I was tossed on a buoyant but unquiet sea, where billows of trouble rolled under surges of joy. I thought sometimes I saw beyond its wild waters a shore, sweet as the hills of Beulah, and now and then a freshening gale, wakened by hope, bore my spirits triumphantly towards the bourne: but I could not reach it, even in fancy, a counteracting breeze blew off the land, and continually drove me back. Sense would resist delirium; judgment would warn passion.” Considering the events immediately preceding this passage, explain the nature of the inner conflict that Jane is experiencing.
