I strongly believe that some people may not be able to change. Because they have gotten used to themselves being kinda rude and mean and they may even like it. If they want to change it would be hard so sometimes they do just give up. There is also another side of this that I believe is really good. Is that some people are mean and rude but they notice it and they think it`s cool to be rude or may even be forced by someone else to be that way. I know that if they want to change the`ll really put the effort into it and make sure that they will change. I guess it really depends on the person.
Do you think Bailey deserves a second chance if she is truly making an effort to change?
I think that if she is truly trying to cooperate with kindness she is worth a try. But if she is still mean,rude or even EVIL I`de stay away from her until she truly changes.
What would it take for Bailey to regain Maya`s trust and friendship?
It would probably take a ton of apologies and sorry notes. Bailey would need to complement her non stop and make Maya feel special and liked. Bailey would need to give out apologies not just to Maya but to all the people she made feel bad. Then if Maya is ready she could then become friends with her again.
This story related to me because
I have been in a situation where one of my friends would gossip and tell things to people that were not and were true. What I did was I told her to stop which only made things worse because we got into a fight and we went our own ways for about 10 school days. I had to admit I was so lonely. At the lunch tables I wouldn't do anything my mouth was shut the entire time. I hated it my friends noticed my behaviour and they DIDN'T EVEN HELP ME!!!!!!! It turned out after we forgave each other and my friend stopped gossiping. But I knew one thing for sure... our friendship wasn't going to last very long. I was very correct abouut that feeling it didn't last long at all.
