For a person who believes strongly in the power of change, I find myself doubting people’s ability to do so. Maybe deep inside I’m really a skeptic. Maybe I’ve just seen too many people fail.
I know that people can change if they really want to… but what I doubt is their desire to do it. Is it that they’re too complacent? Do they not have the know how to do it? Or do they think that they have when in reality, they did for a minute but have returned to their former selves?
Obviously, people are unique and different and it’s unfair to lump them all together in one failing bunch. I try to keep believing that people can change their ways, give them the benefit of the doubt. But I suppose that somewhere in my brain I’m thinking they probably won’t. I hope they will, I hope I’m wrong but so many times, I’m not.
I wonder if it makes me a cynic or a realist? I do honestly believe that every one of us has the power to change ourselves… I don’t know why they don’t.
