As parents, we worry when our children hook up with the wrong friends. But we’re all capable of change and in my cases we do. People can turn their lives around to become the model adult.
But not everyone will put their ‘house in order.’ Fixing our lives is painful, it’s difficult sometimes, it requires radical change from us in how we choose to spend our energy. Some of us will look for help and still do nothing, others may look for help, but may still find it difficult to put that help into practice.
Admitting to something may seem easy, it also depends on what we’re admitting to. Where our values have become destructive and we repeat bad habits, it’s not something we will admit to, but it will be clear to others, we’ve lost ourselves and we must find our way back.
The moral to the story is that whilst we’re not all born into a life where everything we touch turns to gold, we must all look at people’s circumstances, rather than judge and write them off. We are all capable of change.
