People change...or DO they?

I know so many people who have faced tragedy, loss, illness, death, etc. I am one of them. And so many of these people, when faced with whatever stress I mentioned above, SWEAR they will change. “I will be a better person.” “I will be kinder.”

I remember making a deal with God when my Dad was sick. I promised that if Dad would live, I would be the best Christian ever. I promised God every night that I would be a changed woman…well, Dad died and I am still the same old Dawn. I try to be a good person, but Dad’s illness and death didn’t really change anything.

There are at least four people in my life right now who are going through turbulence in their lives. I have heard each of them say that their situation has changed them…that they will be better people, kinder people, they won’t do all of the things they used to do.

But they haven’t changed. They are still the people who they always were…just people under stress and trial. Oh sure, they had good intentions when they swore to change, but they won’t change.

So I guess the point of this post is that people will never change. If you are born an idiot, you will die an idiot, no matter how much you want to stop being an idiot. LOL! Pin It
