Changes . Autumn . Auckland . 2007

Read an article the other day that left me pondering, have you ever had anyone told you that you’ve changed? I did recently, by a friend whom I used to be closed to. She told me that I’ve changed. She wanted to believe I have, saying that it’s the cause of us drifting apart. But I’ve always been me all these while, only we don’t speak the same language anymore. The truth is I’ve stopped sharing with her. What has changed is in fact our friendship, not me. I’m merely showing a different side of me. It has always been there, though she had never noticed. What bound us together is our past, the memories. I’m still content, though we’re on two different paths. The memories we have is enough to last me a lifetime.

As time goes by, we have to accept that people come and go, some are here to stay, and some only make brief stops, nonetheless, all leave behind memories for us to treasure time and again. Just make sure you grasp the moment, that’s all that matters.

    This has made me wonder for quite some time. When I look back at the people whom I’ve known, I’ve noticed that many have changed… I think, even I myself have changed. I can’t do anything to keep them from being the same, we’re just human. But seriously, I am quite sad that most of my so-called friends have changed… no longer the same…

    CC: We all change, or rather, discover different sides of us as time goes by.

    Change is constant. Recently I have been told by some friends that I have changed quite a bit. I’m not as outspoken as before…like I’ve mellowed down or something. Then there are friendships that I’ve moved on from because I feel it’s the right time to do so. All we can do is to learn from the past, live the present and look forward to the future. Even if we change, as long as we’ve got our loved ones who believe in us, somewhere along the way, we know we’ve done something right. 😉

    CC: It’s inevitable, with changes, come losses and gains. We just have to stay true to ourselves and treasure those who are there with use along the way.

    We can treat changes as growth. Everyone must change as the time is changing every seconds..

    You cant always stay at the the start point and never move forward …

    CC: Yes, the only thing that never change is change itself.

    Truly, we all changed cc. Sometimes it is just that as time goes by, we re-prioritise our needs and our wants that’s all. Likewise for friendship, we don’t share as much with some friends as probably the frequency are different.

    No matter what, one thing would stay as you mentioned…memories stayed forever 😀

    CC: Yes, priorities change dramatically over time.

    Hi CC

    Thanks for dropping by my blog.

    I like this post because it does give me a chance to ponder. I believe all of us go through changes. Our personalities may not change but the circumstances in life make us look at things differently as we get older and experience events in life.

    I am sure a friend out there will say that I have changed (because we hardly email each other now). The truth is, our views differ now. We shared a lot previously because we seem to be on the same path with similar experiences. After some years, I found that our priorities in life differ. It has a lot to do with situations and opportunities in life.

    CC: Very true.
    You’re welcome. 🙂

    I whole-heartedly agree with J.T. But on a different note, I met 2 friends just yesterday, one of them haven’t seen for several years and they all praised me like this “You never change. You still look so youthful. What’s the secret of staying forever so young”!

    CC: Haha, good for you!


  7. huei Says:

    i think i have be more pessimistic! hehe looking back at my previous post.

    i once received a said something like..forget people in the past..there’s a reason why they didn’t make it to your future. =) and yes..important thing is grasp the moment =D

    CC: I received the email too, and I agree very much.

    Change is good, if change is for the better…but unfortunately it is not always so. Well, we’re all part of a pre-destined plan…so we’ll just have to make the best of our lives! Time passes, people may change, we just have to move on…..

    CC: You’re right, we all have to make the best of our lives! Life moves on!

    I’d friends say the same thing to me. And I have also say the same thing about my friends. Everyone changes over time.

    CC: We do.


  11. Cmate Says:

    You know what… as much as we want to believe we would never change, we are wrong. We DO change.

    As we grow older each day, the way we look at things change, the way we express ourselves change, the things we like and dislike change, the way we connect and love people change – everything changes. But it changes in a subtle process that by the time we realise it, we deny having changed.

    We tell others they have yet to discover this part of us, thats why they think we have changed. Well, it should be said as we are discovering more of ourselves daily and so do our friends.

    True friends stay put to discover one another and oneself, and accepting that change. Hope you find such a friend soon! Seasonal best friends suck!

    CC: I couldn’t have put it any better.
    I am fortunate enough to have such true friend in my life too. They are one in a million.

    I would say we all do change … acknowledging change is important I guess.

    CC: I suppose what doesn’t change is in fact changes.
