in the beginning, bonnie was an optimistic person who always chose to see the positive in things. however, once bonnie started to suffer immense grief, loss, pain and tragedy as well as the losses of people close to her (( most notably, her grams and jeremy )), she begins to become a much more serious person. although she has shown that she is generally a positive and optimistic person, she has also shown that she is capable of being depressive, withdrawn, martyring, and apathetic (( after her grams death she distanced herself from elena and her friends in mystic falls. her grief was so bad that bonnie had even left town for a few weeks in order to escape.))
despite all the pain, loss and suffering that she has endured, bonnie still remains rather strong, especially in the face of danger and adversity. she has shown that she is willing to put her own personal pain on the back burner in order to pay attention to the needs of her loved ones. bonnie remains the person who is deeply loyal to her friends even through all of the challenges that they have faced.
while bonnie has become friends with and likes stefan, she remains cordial with his older brother, damon, despite damon's actions that have affected deeply including turning her mother into a vampire. bonnie also sees the good in damon and believes that he has the potential to be a good person and that there is hope for him if he makes the right choices.
bonnie's most defining trait, as well as her greatest weakness, is her compassion, her selflessness, and her undying devotion and loyalty to her friends and her willingness to constantly sacrifice or martyr herself for them and for the greater good. multiple times throughout her life, bonnie uses her powers and abilities as a witch to save the people she cares for as well as innocents, despite knowing the consequences. although every single member of her family has warned her about the consequences of some of the spells that she has performed, bonnie's belief is that it is her duty to protect, save and help her friends at all costs.
