    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.

    Would Be Surprised

    If people didn't change.   Experiences and life mold a person and their views. To say that your the same person that you were a year ago or even two years ago is folly.  Change happens, things with me have changed and now that I look back on old stories and finding how I was...
