17 year old Melody is NOT ME

I know that I see videos or blogs of people that say the same things as I am about to say but I feel the need to say this anyway.


You guys have the "privilege" to watch me grow from late teens to early adulthood and that means you are also watching me go through mental growth and changes.
Most people realize this but every once in a while I get a complaint that I have changed (both the way I act and look) and they don't like it. Get over it! This is me NOW. Three years ago I was a pretty pathetic creature, in my opinion. I was still a child and I didn't know how to form opinions of my own or be my own person. I was still crushing on every guy that crossed my path! I remember even constantly worrying about how every single person in my school would view me.
I am almost 21 now and if you don't see how my views on things and my personality can change since the age of 17 you need a smack in the back of the head.

I am different than I was in high school and I will continue morphing as I grow. It's part of life and you are watching it.

That's completely understandable.

I am not the same person that I was back in high school two years ago or even in college one year ago. People need to realize that everyone changes and nothing stays completely the same.

With our situations and world itself constantly changing it would be unreasonable for us not to change as we go through new life experiences. We are not robots. And most of the time...change is a good thing. Some people just can't accept change... Accepting yourself is the key. It sounds like you are well aware of who you are and who you have become...that is a sign of maturity and those who can't see that lack the maturity you own. We never stop developing or evolving no matter what age we are. Tomorrow you will be different than you were today but not recognizably different as you will be 5 years from now. That's just life. You're a cool chick now...I predict you will be unstoppable in a few years time! :)
