Is it even worth it?
People can change. Not everyone changes. Not everyone can change, so when I say "People can change," I mean to say that some people can change. Yes, I know it's popular to say that they can't, especially by people who've been trying to make others do their bidding without success over a long period of time. But I know people can change because some might say that I've changed.
Sometimes the reason people don't change is because they refuse to believe they can change. More often than this, people don't change because they don't think they need to. Pride comes into these equations. Blind spots. Deaf to their own speech, blind to their own actions, unable to comprehend the manifestations of their own thoughts.
When all was revealed to me, it took a while to recover from the shock of it. Once I ceased being stunned, I set out to rehabilitate my character. It was too late, and that made it too hard.
I gave up.
