Maybe it’s true that people don’t change. Maybe it just comes to a point where they reveal their true colours and you get to see them for who they really are. Who they have been all along.
And when you finally see the ugly truth, it’ll set you free. Free from them. It’ll have you running as far away as possible, wondering how they could have turned out to be so different.
But it also sets them free. Free from all the hiding, free from the mask that they had to wear all this while, and free from the person that they disguised themselves as.
Maybe it will take you a while to see it, because your vision is clouded by the hurt and sorrow. Maybe it will take you a while to believe it, because your mind wants to convince you otherwise. It’s hard to accept it, but one day you will.
Because people don’t change. Their masks just fall off.
