You’ve changed your ways so why are people not recognizing this? Why are they refusing to give you credit for doing a complete turnaround? Probably because they have a lot invested in making you the bad guy. As long as you’re the one drawing negative fire, then they don’t have to take responsibility for their own actions. It’s a tricky business owing up to one’s mistakes and foibles, but in the end you have to remember that you’re doing this for yourself and not to win people’s favor. You’re the one who benefits from taking the high road.
