The good thing about the human condition is that we have the ability to think, feel, see and understand how to change things, unlike computers that rely on the information we programme them with.
In a nutshell computers can’t think for themselves, but as humans we have the ability to think and although our experiences will often condition our thinking, we still have the ability to think and are capable of change.
Growing up I was aware that I needed to do things differently, but our circumstances aren’t always that straight forward and we often have to bide our time until the right time. That said, I still believe it is possible for us to work on our understandings, what we need to think about and look out for, making us aware of the need for change.
There are people of course who use their upbringing as an excuse not to change anything. I have known people in my life who continue to make excuses and haven’t changed a thing, but I believe we should at least try to change how we perceive our experiences, so that we perhaps can think about change.
Because we’re capable of change, it becomes all the more sad when we choose not to change anything when we’re absolutely capable of change. As my mother used to say, ‘we’re a long time dead.’ I never really thought about what it meant, but it does encompasses all possibilities about life. We have choices and we can change.
