Too little, too late.

So the only reason that witch spoke with Minnow was because she had no one else to turn to... Still a dick move...

Pathetic bitch likely scared those other loved ones away with her toxic behavior.

They walked out on their son and left him for her to raise.

Ah. So asshole is a family tradition.

Just when I thought nothing could possibly improve my opinion of Cristina. I'm still a long way from liking her, but she cares for her family so at least she has one good quality. Minnow is totally justified in not forgiving her though.

Good job creating a character who's dispicable but still has a better side, instead of a flat villain who does evil things just because they can.

Can't wait to hear how the next two pages make you feel.

And yeah... Kelsey's parents walking out on him and Cristina stepping in says a lot about how he turned out, too.

Minnow: *sigh* FINE, I'll find Kelsey, but that's it!
NickOnPlanetRipple's avatar
You'll see what she has to say about that tomorrow.

Minnow's been wanting to say this for a long time, hasn't she?

Even so, even after I thought that poster campaign had pissed away all the good will a person could ever have for this woman, and even though Minnow's the one in the right here, I can't help but feel sorry for Marx right now.
NickOnPlanetRipple's avatar
Just don't forget that she is an abuser.
MapleSamurai's avatar
Believe me, I won't. Empathizing with someone and forgiving them are two different things, after all.

i wouldn't have anything to say to that pyjak.

I can understand Minnow's reasons for not wanting to forgive Marx so easily, because given all the crap she's gone through so far, it seems impossible for her to do that right now.

No matter how bad people may seem or even be, I still treat them like a human being. I used to do this thing where if I hated someone or if they pissed me off, I'd demonize them, see them as the bad guy. It's the typical ingroup vs outgroup thing. As I got older, and as I looked back on my life, I realized that I was being a jerk. I was being no better than them by doing that. These people have (or had, depending on whether they were able to get over some of their problems) issues, and we shouldn't kick anyone down for having problems if they're trying to push themselves to be better. I've seen people like Marx, putting on a persona and doing some questionable acts, but really, there's a wound that won't heal for her, or she's holding herself back because of something in the past, or whatever the problem is. What hurts is what happens when a past experience changes you, and not for the better. I won't go into detail about a situation I was in, but I'll just say that I learned a lot from it, and I'm trying to get through life one day at a time. Sometimes it's easy, sometimes it's hard, but I'm not going to let that experience kill me. 
Seeing Minnow give Marx her due was awesome, if only because it shows how far Minnow has come, and signs of her becoming a stronger person. Keep the good work up. :)

See, the opposite happened with me.  I decided that treating everyone with kindness and forgiveness made me a target for horrible people for almost my entire life and I needed to re-think my attitude about people who wrong me.

I tried something like that when I was in middle school. When the teachers and other helpful people couldn't help me from being bullied by this one jackoff and his friends, I decided to take matters into my own hands. I became a jerk for a while, and I ended up attacking the bully and threatening him that I would kill him and his family if he messed with me again. I also called one of his friends a douchebag. I ended up getting detention and having to clean the school during lunch time for a week. The teachers told me that they were happy to see me stand up for myself, but the way of doing so violated school conduct. I basically not only sank down to this bully's level, I surpassed him, because he never threatened to hurt me nor did he ever physically attack me. I just had enough of his BS and not knowing a healthy way of getting him off my back, I ended up going too far. Since then, I've been doing everything I can to not become that monster I was. There have been times where I was in a funk for a while, and one time I was close to becoming that monster again, but I've never became that monster fully again. 

I know that I've grown up since then, but I still worry about becoming that way again. I use that past guilt as a motivator to remind me that these people are still human, and that raging like that when they piss you off too much doesn't work.

I just more or less despise most of humanity in general nowadays, save for a couple of people who have shown they're not like the rest.  Animals still get all the love and compassion I used to have for people, though.
NickOnPlanetRipple's avatar
Whew, for a moment I was a little worried you'd say Minnow's being a jerk for not immediately forgiving everything she did...
SuperGenKun's avatar
Oh no. Calling people out on their BS and what they've done is a cathartic feeling, as reluctant some people are to do it. I don't get the feeling that Minnow's forgiven Marx, but I also get the feeling that Minnow just wants to be done with all the abuse that's been bestowed of her over the years. 
Keep in mind that it took me months and even years to get over some of the tougher parts of my life. I may be a merciful person, but I don't forget what people did to hurt me, and depending on the person, I'm reluctant to forgive them, even if they try to make things up to me. I know I'll get over the bad stuff eventually, but it stays with me longer. 
NickOnPlanetRipple's avatar
In that case, I really think you'll like how the rest of this scene plays out tomorrow. Miss Marx wants instant gratification, to have Minnow's permission to put this all behind her now that she's finally starting to feel guilty, but Minnow's not going to let her have that luxury.

*Sigh* Even the worst people can still be human, huh?
NickOnPlanetRipple's avatar
It's not gonna be that easy.
OutcastClankzilla's avatar
Interacting with other people never really is, huh?
