You can’t change a person.

Filed under: Angry, Friends, Home, My Life, Self Pity — happychick @ 6.38p12

I’m not perfect- I’ll be the first to admit it. But I’m a pretty decent person. I do what I think is right- I care about other people’s feelings- I defend the underdog. When I’m wrong, I can generally overcome my tendency to be stubborn and apologize or try to fix my mistake.

But I’m a teenager. I bitch. I succumb to temptation. I spill secrets. It’s in our making, as a human being, to be like that.

I guess I just expect other people to be as good a person as I am- in fact, I put those I know and care for up on a pedestal and expect from them nothing less than utter decency and politeness, all of the time. I don’t like to think my mates are human- that they too, mess up. That they too have bad traits.

Like when the boy you care about calls you “bitchy” before you can defend yourself. Or when your mate backstabs you, whether intentional or not- when she does something that you’d never consider- no matter the temptation. Even when your parents forget to pick you up or whatever.

The point is no-one is perfect and I can usually accept that. The only thing is, I’ve been trying so hard of late to make myself a better person- it doesn’t seem fair that those around me aren’t attempting the same.

  1. dont blame people for not trying to change cos the older we grow the harder it is to accept new habbits in our lives, so much like the fact that you cant teach an ol’ dog new tricks. besides may be they are trying to change but you cant reallize or may be they dont see any reason to change. conclusion: stop bugging others 😛

  2. Hellboy, my dear friend… perhaps, yes, you have a rational point. But your point kills my point and hence I’ll have to backhand you should anymore of this “rationality” occur again.
    (haha I’m joking. I totally understand where you’re coming from and appreciate your honesty.)
