My Dearest L,
I’m afraid I know what you’re talking about and who as well. In this cruel world we live in, we judge each other through the eyes of others and not through our own personal experience. I’m not sure if this is because it’s easier to take out our frustration on someone we don’t know. Or if it’s because we are too scared to decide for ourselves. As for how your feelings shifted from hate to love, I would say it’s quite normal considering the low base you started from. When you think of someone as pure evil, the smallest act of kindness makes this sudden change and you fall for them. I hope this doesn’t hurt you the way I think it will. Be careful, for that kindness is not yours alone.
