Do they change?

Do people really change or do they just become more of who they’ve always been? 

I’ve been wondering this for a while now. Do people change, or do they just keep growing in the person they are? Sometimes I think they can. They can change themselves completely. Do a 180. I know I did. Or I think I did. I’ve changed a lot in the past few years. I’ve grown leaps and bounds. But at the same time am I changing, or am I just growing more into the person I’ve always been. I like to think of myself as a strong and independent woman. I have a wall up to people for a long time. I don’t trust easily. I don’t always believe in the best in people until proven wrong. I will do anything for those around me, even the people that I just met. I overthink and I run when I’m afraid. I’m loud and speak my mind. I rather be told the truth than lied to. But a couple of years ago I trusted everyone. I believed in the good in people. I still did anything for anyone. I was terrified of confrontation. And I was quiet. So did I change? Or grow? 

The same can be asked of anyone. Can you really change? Do people change? Or do they just grow into the person they’ve always been.

One thought on “Do they change?

  1. Ahhh! This was like reading a journal entry of mine from a few years back. I swore up and down people did not change. They only became who they were meant to be, which in a way is not entirely wrong. However, I have learned since that little entry that people do change. Once I learned that, I started to do the same. My opinion only comes from my experiences though. It was just nice to read this because it took me back a bit. I thank you for that. A great read!
