It Doesn't Go Away on Its Own!

A flaw can remain a flaw throughout someone's lifetime as only the things that are considered to be a problem, or that are known to the author, can be changed. 
If someone, for example, started stealing in their youth it is very likely, if left unpunished or unrecognized as being wrong (and subsequently being worked on) by the author, it will remain with him until his death.

I'm saying this because I used to think that some of my flaws would go away, on their own, over time but fast forward 10-15-20 years and those flaws are still there. While I was aware of these flaws, I haven't put the necessary work into fixing them.

Time, by itself, doesn't fix our flaws. Time and acknowledgement of the flaw, without work, will also not fix anything.

The only person that can improve you is you.
