Is It Possible?



Do you believe people can really change?

Can they really truly conform and reform?

Or do always remain more or less the same?
and I'm not talking about little things,
I'm talking total drastic change.

u know what, i came to comment and say "HELL YEA"

then i thought, naah, i might just as well say,

do not expect anything, just wait and see,

also, some stuff may be hard! not impossible tho,

o ppl? they're all different,
some can sing, some cant,
some can write, others cant,
some can walk, jog or run! when others are on wheelchairs

same goes for changing, some can!

others cant ..

wait and see, dont expect

If I trusted someone and then they lost my trust it would be hard to regain my trust and even then I would always have this doubt!

There are different schools of thought on behavioral psychology. In essence, it is believed that people never really change, they merely stray afar from their true self by projecting the image most acceptable to their general audience. That basically means that the core is the same, while the exterior merely fluctuates to grow accustomed to the image others want to see.

I personally believe that people can and do change, or else the whole concept and theory of evolution is just a hoax!
But for people to truly change, they must go through some life altering experience. They usually need to go through something that shows them life's instabilities. If their very foundations are shook, then there may just be a chance for true and permanent change.

I think drastic change comes when drastic situations take place(like life & death :p). Bs people aren't just going to change because they think its the right thing to do..especially once you get a certain age!

Everything is possible. People can change to better or maybe worse. But I do agree with marzouq. I do not think I would be able to trust that person again etha he/she cheated on me. But if it is about something else, maybe it is possible, why not?

They can change but most will change back and only very few will hang on there!
That is if the change was to the good! Of course it is the opposite when the change is for the bad! Few will change back and most will just hang on there!

Yes people can change drastically but I don't think its wise to wait for someone to change because they might and they might not and often when you want them the most to change, they wont. It's not best to invest feelings nor my own wellfare on a shaked stem but that is depends on what are the circumstances and who is the person to you.

yeah totally, most times between age groups or periods or whatever and/or after a traumatic incident..and ofcourse some people change just like that

March 12, 2008 at 10:25 AM  

in short, yes. but the question is, do they want to?

March 12, 2008 at 11:57 AM  

I do believe people change when I see a change! I think I have trust issues and thus I have to see and feel it!

Welcome to earth my friend,

theis is what called LIFE but you'll do just fine,... ppl do change within days my dear

March 12, 2008 at 1:37 PM  

From my past experience I would say people change...I dont like changes so I am often effected by these things!

March 12, 2008 at 2:33 PM  

Yeah.. Bas yi3timid 3al person..

March 12, 2008 at 4:06 PM  

Yes, been through it:)

March 12, 2008 at 4:29 PM  

I don't think they do uless something drastic happens to them!

March 12, 2008 at 4:45 PM  

It depends on the person him/herself. You can never have a measure on the capability of change because each person's capability differs, not to mention the external and internal factors that affect it.
Sometimes the will is strong but other factors hinder the process and sometimes the will isn't strong because it's based on weak reasons and thus fails and so on..

My personal opinion on this is that the only thing that can change people are events in their lives, they can't change themselves and people can't change them, but events can.

March 12, 2008 at 5:17 PM  

Yes, take me for example,
I'm not the person who i used to be!

March 12, 2008 at 8:25 PM  

Yes, people can change in different ways from worse to better and better to worse

March 12, 2008 at 8:42 PM  

my frank opinion on this subject matter: ppl can change their views and perspectives of life.. but they can never really change wht they r made of. y3ni their core never changes law shinu (a6ba3hum o sha59iyat.hum).. but their interests and beliefs may.

March 12, 2008 at 11:08 PM  

i dont think it's possible

they may change temporarily but they will evetually revert back to who they really were / are

March 12, 2008 at 11:49 PM  

Yes and no - people can drastically change but the core is always the same, unless something earth-shattering happens (that makes criminals from decent men)

Yes ! one can, I did. but i don't know if the proverb ' once a thief always a thief' applicable for guys like me.

March 14, 2008 at 12:01 PM  

drastic changes needs drastic measures! so it's up to the persons' commitment and discipline to change :D sometimes change is good. but u can't always change ppl .hence comes the problem of coping with others faults :P my trick is do it to them so they'd feel exactly what they do to u :P not a wise thing but works well specialy with my close friends :)

March 17, 2008 at 1:14 PM  

Yes people can go through drastic changes but it indicates that they were in a state of rejection for their previous situation. They were holding their horses back until they were about to explode so they started to rebel.

Another reason could be external influence & its role in changing the person slowly until she/he embraces the new personality & melt in the new different atmosphere.
