I’ve had this conversation with friends at least once a night. I am usually trying to convince them that they’re good people but it’s not always easy.
Sometimes people are good people and sometimes theyre not. Sometimes you can change your opinion but sometimes you cant change your mind. There are times when you just have to have faith in humanity, in people.
I have a close friend who is a huge heart-sick at times. She is always positive and optimistic. But unfortunately, if there is a part of her that is negative, that part can become a part of her. Its a really sad state to be in. She is very open about her feelings and they are a big part of her personality. But it happens. And it just makes it hard to be around her.
There are times when you just cannot change your mind. I have a relative that is a very positive and optimistic person. She has been doing it for a while, and has had the misfortune of being a victim of crime. But she is still upbeat. She is always positive to me, even when we are going through a hard time together. But the truth is, I could never change her mind, because she has her own mind, and my mind is not hers.
You can’t change a person’s mind. The only thing you can change is your own. We all have our own ways of being and acting. But these are all ways of being that we have learned from our experiences. And the best way for us to deal with our experiences is to learn from them. Our experiences give us valuable insight into what it takes to be happy and successful. So if we can learn from our past, we can make the best of it.
You know that scene where people say, “I’m too old for this shit”? Well, if we can change our minds, if we can change our minds, then that’s all we need to do, right? Not only is it all we need to do, it’s all we need to do. But that’s not what we all do, right? We all want our old ways back.
I say this like I’m a fucking mental health counselor, but I’m not. We have to take action, even if we know it’s not the right way. It’s not always the right answer, but it might be the only one we’ve got.
As an adult, I get the feeling that most of us never really stopped being kids, but instead have started looking back at the things we did as children with a bit of regret. And of course, this is partially why we’re feeling so down right now. The whole death thing in Deathloop feels like a re-write of the story of our youth, complete with a dash of adult content mixed in.
I don’t think I’ve ever felt more disappointed in people, or at least disappointed in myself. What we did as kids was so much more than we could ever imagine or hope for, and we don’t see that anymore. We realize it’s not the way to go, but the way to go is not the way to go, and we feel like we’ve let something important down.
It seems that Deathloop is about to start with a whole host of new things that the developers didn’t want to include in the original version, and that’s what makes it feel like something that has changed. It also doesn’t take long to get immersed in this new world, which seems to be as good as it gets.
