put a SMILE in your VOICE

i'm in a customer service class. i have been in a class like this before. this one is slightly more compelling. slightly.

unrelated: it frightens me that i can feel myself becoming more analytical and insensitive. and narrow-minded.

two words i don't know the specific meanings of, but have used in conversation anyways becaue i like the sound of them: picaresque, apostasy. i need to remember to look them up later.

If you are aware of it, then you can change it.

That's the thing, I am not sure it's something I want to prevent from happening, it's like I am becoming slightly more judgemental however maybe some things just need to be judged, or something. I'm not sure.

I find this extremely amusing Cheetah. When we were dating we had lots of talks about the nature of people and you were firmly in the, "People don't change," camp. I haven't seen anything to make me beleive that you have changed your opinion. Have you? (I require this in essay form, due at the end of class.)

It's been a few years since we were dating. For instance, back then I didn't expect to find us now, you married and a homeowner and back in school, and me a father. Plus, you know, everything else.

But even back then I was vaguely an optimist (it's my big sekrit) and if people can or can't change, which I guess I am undecided on, I know people can recognize their own natures. And as a result, try to change things about themselves; sometimes, just trying is a victory. Sometimes that helps them learn something new they didn't know. What have you. 'Introspection is good' is my point.

But this is getting into another esoteric discussion of human nature, and thusly better served for debating in person rather than on someone else's LiveJournal.

Man, that was more rambling than I intended.

Main evidence that people can change: Cat Stevens, I mean Yusuf Islam. ;)

I think I simply can't verbalize what I feel may be changing without giving some examples that I fear I am not ready to give. They go something like, "I see this behavior in this kind of person and I think to myself, go get some psychotherapy because the 'healthy' conclusion you have come to is actually self-destructive."

I'm trying to think of another example... that's not so completely and utterly vague. I just keep being more "tough shit, make the best of it" than I used to be. I fear this is because right now I have it really good and I have lost sight of the times I have been in bad situations and wanted sympathy.
