    At what point don't people change?

    You can apply this to people you love who act a certain way that is negative, maybe a friend.. even just a person you know from work or school.

    At what point do people no longer change for the better? Is there that point? I mean to me, I think most addicts may get clean but never loose their stripes. A lot of them are very manipulative and can be hurtful with their words. Comes with the territory.

    Is there a age or circumstance where a person is just as good as they will ever be?

    Hmmm... good question. I think for a lot of people there's a tipping point of sorts. When people (or something else) truly push somebody over the edge and he/she has some kind of mental breakdown, the person might want to remain in a comfort zone and thus not change for the better, avoiding anything that may cause similar pain again. When it comes to bad habits, I believe that oftentimes this age-old adage rings true...

    "Some people never change."
    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    I think before a person can change, they first have to be able to admit that they made mistakes. I've known people who couldn't take criticism at all, they preferred to stay in their own 'I am perfect' headspace and refused to change for anything, which is fine. Someday they'll face the consequences of that. Confidence is good and all, but a bit of humility can go a long way. We should always strive to better ourselves as individuals.

    People can always change, I think however the older they are the more difficult it is. For example someone who's been in a way of life for 60 years or something may take a massive health scare to make the changes they need to their lifestyle

    As jaded as I feel about this sometimes (and how, with certain people, they've done the same thing over and over and let you down again and again), I still believe a person CAN change, no matter what you're age. It's just, as was said, harder in most cases the older you are...but not impossible.

    A good support network of friends or family is often beneficial, and quite often essential, but it all boils down to one component: YOU, the individual in question, have to WANT to change, and then actually make it happen. It's not always an overnight solution, and even if you've successfully "changed" (as in the case of addictions, especially substances) it's not a point you reach and then you've "made it" you're done: it's the little battles everyday that go a long way in making, and maintaining, the new you.

    And sure, sometimes you might stumble, you might fall down, you might "relapse" but, we're all human...as long as you get back onto that proverbial horse, it's never too late.
    No one's gonna' give you a map. You've gotta' walk your own path.

    I just think of people's trauma and coping mechanisms that won't allow change. Sometimes it's just hard enough to get through the day let alone life and we try to find ways to reduce the suffering whether not it hurts someone or not

    People do get fixed at a certain point in their lives, and I would think that it depends on the person and that some get it earlier in life and others much much later. I hope that I am in the latter category, but I fear that I am not already.

    I believe that people do change. It just depends on the situation that they are in and their past experiences that made them what and who they are now. Sometimes, people change due to traumatic experience or because of experiences that had a huge impact with their emotions. There may be different factors to consider as well as certain points in ones life that will make people change. Some change, while some just stay who they are.

    What if people change ... but all at the same time so the thought process that made you think of a person one way changed along with their change in a synchronization that made it appear there was no change?


    What if... we're all in synch... so much so it appears nothing is happening at all?

    I don't think anyone really changes, I think peoples personality can change a bit, but not hugely. I think as people get older they tend not to be as cheery etc. Another thing to take into account is if they've been through any life changing situations, sometimes situations in life can shape a persons personality.
