Today I was asked my opinion of someone I used to work with. I didn’t know quite how to answer. It had been 15 years or so since we’d worked together.
Back then I could’ve given a definite answer. An answer that wouldn’t have been exactly flattering… but that was then. I don’t know who this person is today and how they’ve changed.
So this was my response, “It’s been 15 years, so all I really could give you is an opinion of who they were. They could be someone totally different today. I’m not who I was 15 years ago… and I certainly don’t wanted to be judged on who I was back then.”I pray that I'm always improving... as a husband, father, friend... as a person. Click To Tweet
That answer seemed to suffice but the conversation stuck with me for awhile. It reminded me of a great Brandon Heath song, “I’m Not Who I Was”.
Are you the same person you were 15 years ago… or even 5 years ago? How have you changed?
