Change within is the way to be able to change others

Gandhi once said “be the change you wish to see in the world.” One personal change I’d like to make within myself is to be more open, show emotions, and be honest.

Sometimes I have trouble showing my emotions, so working on that would make me a better person, not just for me but also for my friends around me. I’ll be able to sympathize with them and help them.

I carry myself around like I don’t care, but I do, (well sometimes I honestly really don’t care). But I’m honestly tired of that version of me. Sometimes I feel like I’ve actually lost myself because of that and the way I perceive myself to be. By changing that about myself,  I believe I’ll be able to help and influence the people around me in a way that I haven’t been able to before.

I’ll change myself to help change people in a positive way. You know sometimes you’ve got to be willing to sacrifice what you are for what you will become down the road.

I’m ready to face all that’s in front of me now. I’m walking through the fire because there’s no way around.
