I've been thinking about change a lot lately: what is it, why does it happen, what does it mean? And after going through a lot of change lately, I've came to a conclusion. 

It seems to me that change is a thing that refers to your circumstances. To where you have to go and what you have to do. Sometimes you have to adapt to it. And change makes life more interesting. 

But I don't think change is something that happens to people. I really don't think people change, I think they become more of who they truly are. The truest parts of yourself are seen in the parts that never change. 

My whole entire life I've been the same person on the inside. With the same likes and dislikes, the same quirks and personality traits, the same hopes and dreams. All of the millions of things that make me ME, are still in existence. 

When people say "So and so changed so much!" They are usually referring to what they perceive . Just because someone isn't constantly living their life trying to please you doesn't mean they changed. Just because they lost weight doesn't mean they changed. 

As long as you stay true to yourself, you won't change. Sure, you might've had that weird emo stage, or maybe one time you wore abercrombie to sit with the cool kids, but that doesn't change what you know about WHO YOU ARE.

I really don't know where I'm going with this. I just felt I needed to let my feelings out on this subject.
