We can change if we want to do it bad enough but there are some things that no matter what we do or how hard we try we just cannot alter. Taking into account that I’m a little tipsy while typing this post so I may reveal some truths or maybe just use bad language (sorry for that) I know I am a b* but I’m a manageable b*. I’m rude when I want to be and I can be kind when I care to be. The thing is it’s easy to change lifestyles; act like a celebrity or a homeless person, be spoiled and then suddenly care for something so much it’s easy to just give it all up. One day you can act like a freaking rock star, like you own the world and then one overdose and a month on a rehab later you realize your life is s* and you have to own up and make some much needed changes because if you don’t you’ll just be another washed up s* the world chewed up and spat back out.
It’s easy to change if you have the right reasons and you’re doing it first and foremost for yourself. No one is unsaveable unless you’re dead. We are capable of change, we’re humans it’s what we do best; we alter ourselves, we transform, all we need to accomplish such a feat is to commit. When you start you realize how f* up and messed up your personality or your life is and you believe that you need to change then you have to commit to it. No cause is worth risking if you don’t f* believe in it. And when I say believe it’s not just saying ‘Oh yeah it’s worth it so I’m gonna do it’ or ‘I’ll try’. It’s about doing it. Yes, it would be hard, nothing in this life is easy (if you don’t know that truth yet go out and see the people living on the streets begging for money just so they can eat their next meal). If you want change to happen you have to make it happen. Start with the simple things that you can change now and the rest will follow.
But as I said there are some things that no matter what we do or how hard we try we just cannot change and that is human nature. A vile person will always be vile. A good natured person will always be good. The world can spin on another direction but I think human nature will never change. We all have good and bad sides and no matter how much we cover one or the other it will always show. It’s like a stain in a shirt, you can wash it off but it’ll always be there because you know it is. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t work your way around it. As I said we’re humans we’re flawed but the s* is we’re too damn smart to let our flaws get the best of us. Cheers!
