Did you expect me not to change? Yes, life’s gotten to my head and I’d hate to think of that in solely a negative light. Maybe it’s made me a bit jaded, but it’s also made sure I couldn’t stay the person I was.. It kills me to be told I’ve changed as though it’s a bad thing.. Silly me if I’d never grown; silly you for believing I shouldn’t have.
“Not only have I changed; I’m becoming something better.. And revenge is for the weak, so I have settled my vendettas..”
“I started to realise that it didn’t really matter, that love could overcome all those stupid misunderstandings; that if someone really loved you, they knew what was in your heart and it didn’t matter if you made mistakes. They looked past your words and read your heart. If they liked what they saw there, if they recognised it as good, they’d forgive just about anything.”—Ellie Linton - Darkness Be My Friend, John Marsden (via acquiredmind)
