Friday Quote – people change

 

“You see somebody that you’ve known, and you think they are continous.  You think they are one whole thing, but the truth is that they are a great swarm of processes holding themselves in equalibrium, and at various times in their lives, they may assume ideas, positions that are opposite of what they thought before, but they are the same person.”     – Diane Ackerman

    Well, among others, that’s me.

  2. Wow! I read it 3 times, and each time I started to think different things. What a cool quote! It’s so true!

    Mick and Elysia, I read this quote in a book,(quoted by another author) in the context of not staying stuck in anger with friends. A reason to keep on talking even when you don’t think anything has changed. Anyway, even out of that context I thought it was great. A good perspective to have of people.

    Thanks for your comments,
    Ally

    I know how you feel. I was there a couple of months ago. Just too much to handle and it all comes crashing down. Actually, I’m going through something now, but that’s just because of me, not the out of control stuff it was before. Stuff that was happening to other family as well as hubby and me.

    Hang in there. Withdrawel is so tough. Pain meds scare me just for that reason. You’ll be ok. Believe it or not, God is there to help. He just normally lets things run on there own. So yell…I NEED YOU NOW…really loud!
