“What you see in everybody else exists within you.” ~Anon.
The answer to the question will reveal a great deal more about you and the way people will treat you than it will reveal about everybody else’s ability to change.
If you believe everybody has the ability to change, you also believe you can change. You will also be the kind of person who will people more chances than they deserve.
If you believe nobody can truly change, you are very rigid in your own behaviour. Regardless of the words you use, your ability to change is limited to your clothes and maybe your choice of food from time to time. If other people do something you disagree with, they will not get a second chance. You’re one of those people who strongly believe, “once a cheater, always a cheater.” ~Friends.
Thankfully, most people fall between the two categories, Which means, with a little bit of help they can change, however, the change will be so gradual the people around them may not notice the change.
By all means, please answer the question. Just remember, the answer is only really relevant to you and how you perceive the people in your world. I’ll leave you with one final thought.
Your world will change when you develop the ability to change how you view your world.
