they say your character is who you really are.
you can change your personality,
but your character will stay with you until you die.
so that means if you’re a:
…then those traits ain’t going nowhere.
that is interesting to me.
so what are all these self help books for?
to just change your personality?
or with hard work and dedication…
Can you actually change your character flaws?
i was having a discussion with one of my home vixens today.
we were talking about that killer jackal in cleveland,
among-st other things.
“everyone was saying how he was so good.”
to which she said:
“jackals can hide their characters,
but it slips out on occasion.”
to then the convo continued said:
“what is character to you?”
“character is who you are when no one is looking.”
some you meet and they’re off.
something about them immediately alerts your fox/hybrid/wolf senses.
others creep up on you slowly like a vine.
it isn’t until you’re emotionally trapped that they are stuck to you.
i like to think i have a good character.
what you see with me is usually what you get.
i’m not perfect,
but i’m not a demon risen from the darkness.
i’ve noticed i’ve let some slip into my life with questionable characters.
they started out great and then shit took a left.
speaking of left,
i knew him for close to 11 years.
i chose fight back for his character flaws during our friendship.
all that and it ended on something so simple like the rest.
my only excuse for the nonsense is:
a) i was dumb
b) i figured their character would change
…and of course,
all of those answers came into fruition once they showed their tails.
you notice they always stop speaking to you for someone worse.
that usually either tends to be their wake up call or their peak.
water does seek its own level.
i’m learning that you have to let go once someone shows their true nature.
if our bosses are terrible,
do we leave?
if our parents are awful,
do we disown them?
do you just go dropping everyone who comes in your life when they hurt you?
are mistakes a true judge of someone’s character?
are is it a sign of what’s to come?
it seems to be that everyone with a bad character has left my life.
i have grown tremendously and learning to finally see my worth in HD.
now i have to learn to really see through the facade.
it’s hard to spot initially.
looking back tho,
the signs were there.
i just chose to fight against what i was seeing.
so i have to ask the foxhole tho…
