Dr House: People don't change. They want to. They need to.
Last night I watched one of my favourite series, Dr House. In episode 12 season 4, Dr House mentioned the above words which make me think about it quite a while. For me, what Dr House said is true. I'm totally agree with him. People don't change. Maybe they want to change. Maybe they need to change. But people don't suddenly choose to change without the sudden of need to change.
Maybe it is quite hard to understand but if given a situation like below, it will be easier to understand the expressions by Dr House.
Shahid (not a real name) fall in love with Alyaa (not a real name). Before knowing Alyaa, Shahid was a casanova who is wooing any girls that he likes without thinking of the later consequences. But after knowing Alyaa, Shahid promise to himself that he want to change; he need to change. This is what it means by people don't suddenly change unless they have a valid and reasonable reason to change. But unfortunately, the fact that people don't change is 99.99% true, Shahid eventually start to change back and become what he was in his old days. Alyaa then will said that Shahid have changed compare to the time when they first met each other which is 100% false because of the fact that people don't change. At the later stage of their relationship, Shahid is just showing his real personality, his real life and the true of himself. That's why I said that people don't change unless they are willing to change when the right time has come.
What are you guys opinion? I leave this question for you guys to think and ponder about it.
