Have you ever said you'll change and actually done it?

People only change if they really want to. You can never force them. Some people say that so that they can manipulate others into staying. I've told someone that I'd change a few years ago, but when I did change, I stopped hanging out with them all together. I started focusing on work more. Now I'm going on my 3rd year in the Navy. They asked me to stop doing all of the silly shenanigans that would get me sent to jail, so I have. The only person you can control is yourself. I hope that you have a nice day.1
I think most people have been in this situation, me personally I've said it with the doubt the doubt that I was really never going to change, but with time I can safely say I have changed especailly for the better, but by then it was too late. The good part about changing is that it benefits you most times.1
Yep. Said I would lose weight. Dropped 30kg
120kg down to 90kg. Need to get to 80kg though.1
No. I honestly wouldn't change for someone unless I felt it was necessary.
For example I met my wife almost 5 years ago. That was a watershed moment in my life. I realized I needed to make serious change in my life, if I was going to be the right kind of guy for her. So I did my best to make those changes. I, for lack of a better term, got my shit together, and made vast improvements in my life. I never told her I would change, I just did it because I wanted to marry her, and I wanted to be right for her.
Typically when people say they will change it's a manipulation tactic and means nothing.1

Yes, I have changed many times, depending on the needs of the moment and the results i want to produce.1
I have done that befor. It worked for awhile. Then she left me and said. She did so because i wasn't myself.1
If your whole point of changing is to satisfy somebody else, reconsider it. I don't want to say don't do it, because you should be the one making the decision.
I have personally changed many things in my life, but only when I really wanted to do it myself.0
Yes - even one of these 31.12 promises worked
Vegetarian, no alohol (since 16), no smoking
But these days i have grown a bit lazy 😉...1
Not quite then again one could say that but life itself for that person has to change. Well.. at least for some1

Not to someone, but like when I wanted to change for myself and really wanted this change, I did it.
I would not say it to someone to just make them feel good.
The truth can hurt but it's better then some lie "oh I will change trust me" yeah sure you will and I'm the next Madonna
Yeah I also do not believe people if they tell me they will change, don't say it to me, show me and do it for your own
I hope you get the message haha1
Yes. My most recent one is I told my parents I'd be 100% financially independent of them, take some of their burden off. I've been working a year now, moved out of the house for nearly 4 months, and loving it :)
They supported me and the friends I moved with, but I don't think anyone expected us to last this long already. We're the 3 musketeers1
