Something people would always say about others in high school is that they’ve changed. Like no shit. Nobody is going to be the exact same person they were when they were thirteen if they are now eighteen. But why do people say, “you’ve changed”, like it’s a bad thing. Growth in personality is good. I guess I’ve been thinking about this lately because of how much I have changed. I’m a totally different me than I was when I first started high school. But at the same time, the core of me still remains. It’s strange and I don’t even know what I’m trying to explain here, but never be afraid to explore another part of yourself, in fear of judgement for change. Change always comes whether you want it or not.
