People say that a leopard doesn’t change it’s spots. They say that people don’t change. It isn’t true. People do change.
People change themselves if they want to. I have wanted to change, and with a lot of hard work and patience, I have changed. I am so grateful that I no longer feel about myself the way I used to. I am grateful that I’m not just a conditioned response.
I am grateful that in the 12 Step program, I found in myself the courage and strength I needed to admit that I’m not perfect and my way of doing things wasn’t working. I’m grateful that I was able to change and that more change is coming.
Change is often a very scary prospect, but with faith and perseverance it pays off in the end.
