People change either for the better or for the worse.
If you used to put your trust in everyone easily, past experiences make you extra careful and doubtful. Why do people change?
People change for two main reasons: either their minds have been opened or their hearts have been broken.
Life teaches the best lessons that are obtained through experience. These experiences gear you towards facing tougher challenges.
Change is constant and when you have both pleasant and unpleasant experiences, you teach yourself to be braver.
If it is your first time to be in a relationship, you perceive love to be tantamount to a fairytale with happy ending. As time passes by, you come to realize that reality is way different from fairytale.
You get to experience getting hurt and you meet rejection face to face.
Sometimes, pain becomes unbearable and no matter how you try to make the relationship work, the happy ending you are looking for is seemingly elusive. As your heart is broken, your mind becomes open. You no longer fantasize about a perfect relationship.
You become more aware of your actions and you always do a reality check before you enter into another relationship.
Your mind is more open to various possibilities including getting hurt. Your beliefs are no longer limited. Although getting hurt is part of loving, you are more prepared to face the consequences.
