Which Do You Believe To Be True?

I was thinking of the movie Story Of Us. One minute the friend says-
"People don't change. You are at 80 who you are at 8."
Then she tells the other spouse-
"People change over time. The best thing to do is grow and change with them."

  • Actually research shows that by the time a child is 4 years old, their personality is set. Meaning- you will most likely have the same personality traits for the rest of your life. Yes, actions may change overtime but some things will stay the same.

    LOL, what were u doing at 8? I was playing Barbies. Imagine if that was the way we always are. Of course people change, they grow up and go though life experiences. We are always changing.

  • Both! I believe that there are things about everyone that stay the same no matter what. We all do grow and change over time depending on our decisions and people in our lives.

  • I believe both. There are a lot of things that are constant. In many ways you will very much be the person at 80 that you were at 8. At the same time we do learn from life and things change. We both change and remain the same.

  • I think it's a little of both. Life's experiences change a person over time....but some things never change.

    I've been burned quite a few times, so I'm not as trusting of people right away as I used to be. In that regard, I've changed.

    When I was 11, 12, 13... I LOVED NKOTB & would've given my right arm to have met them. Now that they're back... and I'm grown... I hit every show within driving distance, stake out the busses, have met them all several times, and just had Donnie sign my arm so I could have it tattooed (so sorta like "giving" my right arm LOL) So, in that regard.... I haven't changed at all --- just have a driver's licence and nobody to tell me "No, you can't go".

  • Oh my, I loved loved loved NKOTB. If they were singing old songs, i think I would go see them. I don't like their new stuff.
    I have changed, I'm so not the person I was at 8. She was not very cool.

  • People change. As you grow, you learn and you change.

  • I believe in both as being correct depending upon the person.

    There are those that are willing to grow, mature, and change hence making the quote, "People change over time. The best thing to do is grow and change with them." true. Then there are people who are unwilling to change, grow, and mature, and these people tend to not really change hence making the quote, "People don't change. You are at 80 who you are at 8." true.

    Change is an action that can be taught/learned, but it all comes down to choice by that individual, and for some they are just stubborn, ignorant, or unwilling to commit to change no matter how much of it may be going on around them.
