Can People Change?

Can people change?

I think people can change.  I have changed a lot over the years.  I am a better person now than I was in my youth.  However, changing is not easy.  It requires a lot of work, personal reflection, and dedication.

What do you think?  Can people change?

  1. “Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”
    ― Jalaluddin Rumi

    Sure we can change, for better and for worse…

    For better, is as you say, hard work. For worse, just takes apathy sometimes, I guess…

  2. For me change came very slowly over time…subtle new light, tiny steps…often barely detectable but change was in progress. I think we too often expect people to change quickly and lack patience with them, but it may take years. (Change can happen quickly, but we can’t always expect that.) Also, as a Christian, I believe a relationship with Jesus Christ is integral for life change.

  3. My belief is that a person really, truly changes (for the better) when their heart is involved in the process. It takes a willingness to look at oneself with complete honesty, imperfections and all, and a sincere desire to learn and grow. The scriptures liken or link change to conversion.
