Just stumbled on a quote I just read on tumblr basically paraphrasing it into that it only takes one person, place, or thing to alter your way of thinking and your own perspective on other people, places, things, and including yourself.
Making this statement, I get very annoyed when people tell me I’ve changed. Well no shit Sherlock. I can’t be the same person you’ve met 3+ years ago. We all go through obstacles and experiences that eventually changed our way of thinking or acting. For instance, I have a boyfriend now and we’ve been together for well over half a year. I’ve been more dormant and reserved now because of him. Yet I get people saying that I’m a grandma now because I have a boyfriend. Which I guess I don’t mind people calling me that. Another example, I’m not a going out bar/clubbing type anymore. I’ve experienced siblings and friends that go crazy and buck wild when they’re out and that’s just not how I want to be perceived as. Doesn’t mean I’ve changed, it’s just the process of maturing.
I don’t know if you guys understand what I’m trying to say. My point is, everything is always changing. Don’t use it as an excuse upon someone because you don’t like how things are going with them. Worry about yourself and quit worrying about others.
