Can people change?
Yes, I do believe they can. But I do believe they find it too hard, too difficult, and that most people choose not to.
To change is incredibly difficult. You’re admitting you’re not the best version of you that you can be (that you have flaws/faults). Correcting something that’s a part of you for ages- painful.
You have people around you who knew you, and sometimes those same people beat you down, and make changing even harder. Telling you or others that you can’t change, it’s just an act, etc.
Now, of course, if you’re going to from nice to bitch, that seems easier. It always seems easier when the changes are negative. But positive changes- those always seem hard.
Yes, people can change. But all too often, they don’t.
