Changing What Was Once Unchangable
I am sure everyone at some point in their life says “I’m never going to change”, I have said it once. Now that I think of it, it was probably one of the most stupid things I could have ever said. First of all, why wouldn’t someone want to change? Is it just to fulfill what someone else thinks of you? Is it to prove something?
It is pretty evident that there is no way for anyone to be “unchangable”, we are not the same person we were a year ago. Shit, we aren’t even the same person we were yesterday. We are a mold of experiences. I am the present, the present is what I have guided myself towards. We as humans mindlessly live our lives, doing what we think has to be done, what we want to do, and sometimes what other’s want us to do.
Each person has their own personal values, these values change them, and the values also change with time. Something that was once important to you can be insignificant within the next day.
My point is that people are the most mentally tangible beings. Anything can switch the direction one is heading towards, we fall in love with ideas and adapt to surroundings fairly easily.
I think when people say they won’t change they probably mean the way they perceive the world, their attitude, and even the way they deal with situations. But guess what? That is a lie, think about it. As a young teen you would bitch about everything and cling on to people, but as you start dealing with those things you begin to notice that you just let things go, and instead of bitching you shrug your shoulders. Everyone changes, it is a part of growing up, it’s a part of molding into the person you are going to end up being later. We have to learn to accept change and embrace the fuck out of it.
When you’re in a shitty situation, you know what you do? You do things differently, you find a way to make your shitty situation into a better place. You change to find your peace.
I have yet to meet someone who has found their peace, maybe it’s only achieved through death. Who knows..
