Not the same that happened to me, but sort of similar. I didn‘t hate her the first time I played, bit I definitely didn‘t like her either. The second time I played the game, however, I got attached to her optimistic nature and I could relate to how she bottled up her emotions. After my second playthrogh she easily became my favorite character along with Kratos. I love her so much now and I feel horrible that I didn‘t pay attentiin to her at first. She‘s an amazing character.
