Look, it’s… just. Jesus. I’m going to get philosophical about it and no one likes it when I do that, BUT I SWEAR I HAVE A POINT.
If there’s one thing in life that no matter what you do, will never ever stop for anyone, that’s time. It goes by, the merciless son of a bitch, and you can’t do anything about it.
Time equals growing, physically and/or mentally. As it goes forward we move with it constantly. You can’t help growing up as much as you can’t help time.
Growing up equals change. Change equals adjusting.
People, sometimes, hate adjusting, and are afraid of change. Hence why a lot of people hate the idea of growing old. It also has to do a lot with the sense of mortality that time gives you, BUT THAT’S NOT THE POINT.
The point is, people constantly change because time constantly passes and there’s nothing you can do to help it; and if you deny changing you’re being silly and obstinate. So go on, change, curse yell and take chances, because that’s what growing up means.
If they can’t adjust, then you’ll find other people that will.
(Also, yeah, I’m always talking to him. He lives inside my head, LOL.)
Ah, so that brings up the question: Do you think over time people change? Someone with deep-rooted problems will have the scars of what happened to them, but the scars won’t necessarily define what they will do with their future. I can forgive and forget-the forgetting is simple for me. Once I no longer care for someone, it’s very easy to shut off my emotions for them. It’s like being acquaintances with someone, maintaining a distant relationship.
But someone who may have committed a petty crime may have turned over a new leaf. They change for the better, still having to deal with others who bring up their past.
I just realized it’s like I’m arguing with myself…just ignore all of that.
I’m starting to welcome change, in my own way. It’s a tough cookie.
