I haven’t written in a while. It will probably be a while more before I really start writing regularly again. We are in the midst of a challenge right now and until the outcome is upon us, it is not something I choose to write about. Since my head is really elsewhere, you probably won’t get much of interest from me other than a few rants here or there. I apologize for that in advance.
Here is today’s little rant.
I read something in a comment on another blog saying ‘people don’t change’. Why do we say that? Other people will tell you they left a relationship because they ‘grew apart’ or ‘he/she wasn’t the person I married’. Friendships begin or end because life changes or because circumstances change or, well….because we change.
We change due to age, we change due to education, we change due to life experiences.
Ask any parent of a special needs child and they will tell you that they have changed. Selfish people can become selfless, irresponsible people can become attentive, ignorant people can become aware, weak people can become strong.
I don’t think it’s about people’s lack of ability to change; it’s about being open to change and the willingness to accept the changes we make.
