We do not start off who we become.(I hope)
I believe in everyone past we have done something we hope would never see the light of day. We say things, we do things, we try things, we are not perfect. It is often how often we repeat those “things” that can sometimes determine who we are. This is not always true, there is always a little gray area that many people flirt with myself included.
There are some people who will always be known as a thief. A drug addict will always be known to some people as a drug addict, it does not matter if they have not done drugs in 20 years.Some people will never except that that person has changed for the better.
My mom use to call almost every man she ever met a fagot. These are her words. Until she learned that her only son aka my brother was gay. She regrets ever using that word because she was using it to be mean. I’m sure she does not want anyone to use that word in a mean way to describe someone she loves. I use to quote Eddie Murphy from the movie 48 hrs. that went like this, “Listen up I don’t like white people.” I did not have problems with white people I think I said it for shock value because I use to say this when I would get on the school bus and there where white people on the bus. Later on my dad had become involved with a white lady and my little sister was born. I never said that phrase again. Love you little sis.
I do not think all people go through the phases of metamorphosis. Some people stay the worm, i.e., racist, homophobic,misogynist,bigoted you get the point. But some of us we grow into that beautiful butterfly if we’re lucky. Then there is some people who we think are going through the last stage of metamorphosis long enough to fool you for a little while. Yet their wings fall back off and you see that yes they are still a worm.
Can any of you relate? Do you believe people can change?
