Very rarely and even if they do their past will follow them and should follow them.

Some times an extreme emotional trauma can cause your personality to change drastically. People cannot be forced or talked into to change by someone else, they have to take the initiative themselves.


I thought of this after my post earlier... but are they truly changed? I feel like it is temporary, though it could take decades to get over it. I grew up with some pretty bad abuse and as a result I was afraid to be who I really was (wanting to avoid judgment) and I am only still slowly letting go of my restraints placed on me so long ago. I believe that I am still the same deep down. However I agree with the second half of your statement only in this case instead of changing I would consider it more of a reversion, back to the original form maybe

Of course people can change, it just takes time and a swift kick in the ass.

Real talk, I know people who will never change, because I don't have them strapped into a fucking chair until they detox and straighten out, but the thing is I have my own life to live, and I always plan on changing for the better.

Live your life standing still and you won't change. I'm pretty bad for that sometimes, but sometimes I also like to slap myself in the face and get moving. You'd be surprised how much better of a person you can be if someone is watching over you for the sake of improving yourself, and not giving into your wants and needs.

The more things change the more they stay the same.

some people don't take the word "change" seriously, maybe some people do change but it's rare

People change all the time. How much is up to the individual. Character development isn't just a literary device.

I disagree, I've seen some pretty big changes, I've gone through some myself tbh. I believe if we do go through some huge changes we'll still have the urge to go back to how we were, but we don't have to. A lot of people do and will lie/pretend to be someone else though, but you can usually see through those people.


The brother of my late adoptive father is a sculptor , he prefers working with Jade. And I once asked how he knows what to turn your average block of nondescript block of material into when I was a kid. After all to my eyes a 7 by 7 block of of Jade looks the same as any other 7 by 7 block of Jade. He said that the piece was in the core of the block that all you had to do was remove the dust off it as it were.

People I believe are the same , some of us are simply larger blocks and thus more of us has to be removed before what we are comes to the surface. That isn't change, that is simply refinement. Removing the excess off a block of Jade does not change the piece locked within.


But what if for some reason we decide Jade isn't the right material so we change into something else completely? Not removing excess Jade, but that Jade itself isn't right? I'm not sure if I'm explaining it properly but I do hope you can see what I mean.

I can however see what you're saying, but I feel as if it only applies to most people, not everyone but definitely a lot of them.
