...having trouble putting my thoughts into meaningful sentences right now...
It's funny how you think you just can't stand certain characteristics of a person, but you overlook them sometimes.
My grandpa Walter Frank (Wally, to his friends; we didn't call him that until we were older, quite older for real) told me once that everyone's got three things about them you're just not gonna like. If you can look past those three things, the person's really not that bad.
I have a hard time with this. If there's some absolutely obnoxious characteristic about a person, I don't like to be around that person. (This sounds trite, small.)
