Can someone change?
Can someone truly change themself? If you have the desire to change your circumstances you must likely be discontent with your present situation. Something is begging you to tweak one aspect here, and another, a part of your personality, or physical being, there.
The desire to change stems from current circumstances, and those circumstances are the ones that have happened to have developed.
So—is it possible to create something new, to shed old skin, and begin again, when that rebirth stems from a series of events, your current or past life.
We wish we could burn ourselves to the bone, start again. We wish we could forget the time someone exiled us, or disown those moments where we’ve proven ourselves alien.
If we can’t truly hope for a rebirth, which many of us desire, does that inclination provide fuel to religious or spiritual belief. The idea that we eventually divorce from this body when it is our turn, but our existence continues elsewhere.
Is it also fuel to every human-developed industry? Capitalism feeds off people’s inability to truly change, despite how much they desire it.
