It’s weird how much of an impact habits can have on relationships.
You think a certain way, act a certain way, and talk a certain way. Friends and family who have been around you for years think they know you. Truth is… no one knows you. They know who you are to them and what you mean to them, but they do not know you. They know the little things that will probably never change; like how you don’t like carrots or how you always pick the items from the back in grocery stores. To really know someone takes a lot of time and effort. Time and effort that not everyone has because let us be serious… everyone has to look out for themselves first.
People always change. They have to. It’s a part of life. Some change quickly, others slowly. Some don’t change at all until they are faced with no other option. Some don’t even realize that they’ve changed until it’s brought to their attention.
I absolutely hate change. This is no secret. But that doesn’t mean I can’t. For the past few weeks, I’ve seen how my habits have impacted the people I love. It’s enough to make me try harder and be better. I just need those I love to try with me and be patient with me; to accept me through all of my weird stages. And if they don’t… well then it’s like the saying goes, ‘Those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.’ ok bye.
