I just do. It's not like there's a trick to it. I believe there's good in people, because what's the alternative? I have to believe that people can be good...can be better. And sometimes it hurts. When I found out that Wells, the man who had mentored me and helped me and been my friend, was the man who killed my mother, I didn't even want to get out of bed. I hated him. And I hated myself for being fooled by him. I was so angry. I'm still angry sometimes. But I realized, eventually, about the time I met the other Wells, that I had been giving him too much power. So I forgave him. And I didn't do that for him. I did it for me. Because holding on to that kind of anger and hate...it's like a poison.
Maybe it was easier, not trusting people. But was it really worth it? You have people now. People who will have your back. And maybe you get hurt sometimes. But you have friends who will help you through that. You have a team. You have me. And you'll get Mick back.
Lisa will be fine. She's strong and she's smart and she can handle herself. I know, because you're the one who taught her all of that. And you didn't put her in that position. The Time Masters did. Vandal Savage did. And maybe Rip Hunter did by bringing this whole mess to you guys and playing with time without considering the consequences. You can't blame yourself for the things other people did. All you did was try to save your friend. And that is good.
Nobody's good at it. I'm not good at it. I have to work at it every day, just like you. And I know this is hard and I know you're wondering what the point of it all is. But you don't need to give up. Your team is here. I'm here. I'll help you through this. Even if you don't believe in yourself, I do. And nothing could possibly change that.
Hey. I'm right here. You can see me any time you want. And I want to see you. I know you said you got medical attention, but I worry. And if Mick came after me, I'd stop him. Or you would. And then we'd help him. He's not going to scare me off. I care about you. And you're stuck with me.
