Do people today remember you as you were when you were growing up . . .
And it wasn't so good?
Are there people who are always going to judge you by your previous behaviors? Of course there are. Those people are only human and they have no reason not to.
Unless you give them a reason not to.
Can you change from the old you to a new you? Yes. Will that change their opinion of you? No doubt. I mean, why not? When they see the new you enough times, that's what they'll tend to remember.
So why not change to a new you right now?
People may have long memories when it comes to the past . . . but they can't help but notice what is right in front of their face.
So . . . What are you putting in front of their face?
The New You.
here's what I think:
It's like Dr. Phil says (paraphrased): It takes a thousand *atta girl/boy*s to make up for each *you are a bad person* in everyone's life. Someone has to give you the *atta girl/boy*s, and if no one else does, it's going to have to be you. YOU make your changes in your life. When you change on the inside, it shows on the outside.
After all, your past is over -- whether the bad or unfortunate thing(s) occurred years ago, a week ago, yesterday, or an hour ago. It is still in your past and your past is over, isn't it? And since it is over, now is the time to make changes!
If I were you, I'd start working on that right now. Keep giving them reasons to give you a chance. Keep in their face with the new *you*, the new *atta girl/boy*, and pretty soon they will see The New You, too.
Congratulations! You have just earned the respect you deserve.
