People can change….we know this to be true because when we look back over the last 5 or 10 years we can recognize the change within ourselves.
And people can reappear in our lives after periods of being gone….friends, family and so on.
We then have choices, we can hold onto what we believed to be true 5 years ago or we can give them the benefit of the doubt and learn to know them all over again.
Not everyone who comes back in our lives will stay and there still has to be healthy boundaries and we still need to be treated with the respect and dignity we deserve.
But….if we open the door a little we may gain a lot….people change, we change, the world changes and if we are compassionate and if we are willing to see what we ourselves brought to the story all those years ago then anything is possible!
