It's OK to be Someone Different!
Anyone who has a problem with you changing are the ones who are ok with remaining the same. It's ok to decide to stop doing certain things, stop behaving a certain way or trying to do better with your life. Don't allow anyone to draw you out... causing you to act like the "old you." Don't let them try and remind you of your past of who you use to be. You're not that person any more!!!!
Understand... You'll lose friends along the way! But you'll also meet some new ones... ones that you will have more in common with than those you left behind. But the REAL ONE... the real ones will never leave!!!
