Seeing the same

"The more things change, the more they are the same."
-Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr, Les Guêpes, January 1849

This evening I witnessed someone's reaction to something they said was "unexpected." I listened to them make excuses about why they were yelling and screaming at the top of their voice. About why I could hear them when I was inside of a building and they were outside. I listened to them say why they did it around certain individuals. And even though they said, "I apologize" for doing it outside of this particular building, they still justified their actions: "You know how I get" and "It just took me off guard" and blah blah blah.

Why is this important to me? Actually, it probably shouldn't be, but it was kind of one of those things where you realize that what you thought was actually correct. I thought the person hadn't changed and I realized it was true. The temper was still there, the immaturity was still there, the justification for wrong behavior was still there... I know I am not perfect and I continue to work on myself, but it is a relief (maybe that's not the right word) to see that I made the right decision.
