    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 ??

    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.

    For The Good Or For The Bad......

    I call it the Jekyll and Hyde syndrome and have witnessed it several  times in my life. When they change from a Hyde to a Jekyll, it's a good thing and makes us want to applaud.  It can restore our faith in humankind and bring smiles to faces and joy to our...

    I know I can change, especially my mind.

    I start chatting with people and I get to know them at first I am like yeah I like them, he/she is nice and then I start chatting to them more getting to know them how they act/react. What they talk about and what they want to talk about. It's just quite annoying sometimes how I...

    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.

    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...

    Be Happy...... Enjoy every moment of your life. Life is too short to waste on grudges. Laugh when you can, apologies when you should, and let go of what you can't change.
