Daffy Duck is a WAY better character than Donald Duck.

Besides, Disney sucks.

Watch your thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words, they become actions.
Watch your actions, they become habits.
Watch your habits, they become your character.
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.

Characters stand the test, personality can shatter in one instant when times hit hard.

I just found out the hard way my character was never as strong as i though it was. i lost the woman i loved due to the words i spouted off. Lesson learned Pride was involved and inevitably the biggest reason for my actions and words. Rebuilding is always hard. the hardest part now is learning and implimenting the fact that my pride is meaningless.

Rebuilding is what's going to determine your character now

I agree. This has happened to me as well. How you handle it says more than anything. Will you learn from your mistakes and move forward burning brighter than ever, or will you wallow in self-pity?
