“People change”

We often hear that “people change,” especially when we are talking about long lost estranged family members or a terrible boss.

A more accurate statement is, “People can change.”

Of course, we can adapt to new circumstances, take radical steps into disrupting our status quo.

So, why don’t more people do it?

It turns out, change is hard.

So hard that I’m not so sure if people change as often as we think or hope they would. That, in reality, we become more of the same.

Deep meaningful change for the better, that is magic. And when it does happen, it something to be celebrated.
