By not understanding the nature of the Party, Julia and Winston as a force against the Party are reduced in effectiveness without each other, and in different ways, the realization of their inadequacy gives them a further sense of the futility of their resistance. But while Winston is physically deteriorating, Julia is in her prime and is excessively healthy. Yet she is also the victim of Winston's mental aggressions.

We see the ugliness of his world, and we also see the degradation of his existence. He drinks, his body is ravaged by neglect, and we realize that he is powerless to improve the conditions of his life. He is lonely, broke, and suicidal.

With just a few words, Orwell makes us feel compelled to share Winston's pain and misery; we share his secret hope that things will get better. When Winston meets Julia and falls in love with her, things do get better, and for a few moments he is happy.
