I Know People Can Change

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 185 People

    When you start to see people change,

    you start to wonder if they were like this in the beginning, and if you just never noticed it. But don’t forget you once loved who they were before. Don’t take it out on them for changing, because nobody stays the same. We all grow and we all change.

    Do They Want To?

    Or for that matter...do they need to and what is that based on? Everyone is capable of changing, they just have to have the desire.

    Deep down I know that people would change

    when they're in a relationship. But what hurt me more was the fact that my bestie (slowly) change. I mean, I know that there's a "honeymoon" phase, but now its like being a stranger. No more late night chat, no more hanging out after school. Oh well ??
