our families contribute so much
to how we change in the future.
At home is where we have been molded ever since
to the kind of people that we are now.
Our home and family is our biggest influence.
Then we have many friends the entire time
who may be our neighbors,
classmates or simply close relatives.
They also make a big impact in our lives.
The surroundings or the neigborhood
also makes a scene in our growing up,
and the schools offer great guidance
and teachings along the way.
We change to the kind of people
that we are now
because of our choices in life
and the many influences
that are making the biggest impact.
We don't remain the same for a long time
because we have to get better
for what is found in our very nature
is the pursuit of perfection.
But oftentimes also,
there are so many people
who change from good to bad,
and from bad to worse.
They must have a bad growing-up years
that's why they ended up that way.
they can always change again
to what is considered right and good
which is to change for good or better.
Everytime we change,
we become new people,
with new strengths, new weaknesses,
new goals, new pursuits,
new tastes and so on.
What we have before
don't necessarily remain
for we no longer want them.
Even relationships are not spared
in the course of this change.
Friendships get sour,
we ignore or overlook friends
for we want new ones to take their place.
We no longer care about our crushes,
for our tastes in relationships have changed.
We no longer spend time
with close friends before
because we don't feel them anymore.
It's also possible that we already become arrogant
because of some achievement
that's why in return,
people don't like us anymore.
We may not be behaving like we used to
and already doing a lot of vices
like drinking, smoking and worse, doing drugs.
It's seldom that people change for the better
and it's often from good to bad,
or from bad to worse.
Fortunate are those
who change for the better
for that is the ideal change for everyone.
But there are also a lot of things
that will remain forever in our lives.
Our families will always be there
though there maybe a lot of disaggrements
or quarrels from time to time.
But still family can't be replaced by anyone
and will make us incomplete without them.
There maybe some friends
who will be our friends forever
no matter where our lives or carreers take us,
or no matter what we become in the future.
We don't totally change,
not our entire being.
Just some parts in us will be changed
because those parts need to get better.
We have to remember
that to change is always positive
as long as it always should be
for the betterment of our selves.
We can forget about our friends
only when they are bad influences
who make us stray from the right way.
But if they are true friends
who are there for us anytime we need them,
when they make good advice,
and when they help us become better people,
then we have to keep them.
