Do People Really Change?

I come from the school of thought where I always think people can change and that, maybe more specifically, I’m going to be the one to change them.

I am the one who is going to get this or that person to finally turn the corner.

But as Oprah says, when people tell you who they are, believe them.

Quick story:

There’s an Indian in the desert, and he runs into a rattlesnake.

The sun is going down; it’s getting dark and cold. The rattlesnake is dying; he can’t survive the cold desert night.

He begs the Indian: “Please wrap me around you, under your warm coat, to keep me warm and save my life.”

The Indian replies: “No way. You’ll bite me, and I’ll die.”

The snake says:  “Mankind  would not let me just die out here. Of course I won’t bite you - you’re saving my life.  Please, please, please wrap me around you and please keep me warm so I can make it through the night.”

This goes on and on for over an hour and finally the Indian relents.

The Indian wakes up early the next morning only to find that the snake has bitten him.

“After I saved your life, how could you do this to me?” he demands.

The snake says: ”Hey man. I am a rattlesnake. What did you expect?”

Do you waste time trying to change some people? Or do spend time trying to develop their strengths?

    I got my ex husband back to me and also got fertile and gave birth to twin girls after 12 years of marriage.
    When I came online last year, I saw a testimony about Doctor Odunga and how he has been helping people with marriage issues and I decided to contact him. We spoke on email at and later he gave me his Whats-App number which is +2348167159012. He assured me he would help me get my ex husband back after 3 years of no contact. Doctor Odunga is the best spell caster I must say. My husband called me after 24 hours of contact. The third day, I received natural herbs for fertility and after using it, I became fertile and conceived. My husband and I reconnected, had sex and I was pregnant. Presently I am happy to say I am the mother of twin girls and this is ALL THANKS TO DOCTOR ODUNGA. I came online to say this: If you need help, I believe you are saved with this man.

  • According to this story, don’t believe anything when they are under duress – in survival mode. Don’t trust those who would use guilt to change your mind. Listen to your instincts above all, compassion is for the weak.
