The most recent months of my existence have caused me to believe that most humans will remain the same over time. People often date expecting that a particular behavior we aren't fond of can be changed in the other person, but how often does that really work? We go on diets expecting that we can maintain weight loss for life, but the numbers show that most people who try will fail miserably both at losing over the long term and in maintenance. Personal bad habits, working out, anger issues, spending too much money and a slew of various vices - most of us will struggle with at least one of these over the course of life. We either need to do them more or need to partake less, but either way we struggle to make permanent change.
As the new year approaches and promises to ourselves are made, will we actually be able to follow through with our resolutions? Will 2013 be the year of permanent change, or just more failed attempts? I don't make new year resolutions for the very reason that I believe it's not the best time of year to make huge changes in life. In fact, I have found that the biggest changes tend to happen in the autumn months for me. Of course, what is flowing through my mind at the moment? The thought that perhaps this should be the year I make resolutions in January. Perhaps things will be different if I modify the time of year for metamorphose. Thus, repeating my own cycle of persistent sameness.
