Somebody I used to know.

Somebody I used to know.

The super kind and super nice person I used to know has changed.

I am sad and disappointed in the person I once knew… People change and sometimes it’s for the better. Sometimes they just change…

Occasionally, stop and assess yourself and see how you may have changed.

People change that’s a fact.

What’s interesting is how people change. A new job and new people can change an individual. This is bothersome to me because somebody I used to know has changed in that exact way. A loving, kind, caring, compassionate, and understanding person has turned rude, and cold-hearted.

I saw the changes months ago. They will not admit it, however, they have evolved into a different person. They slowly moved from a kind person to a less kind, less attentive, and less nice a person. The little things mattered less and less; the stress of the new job took over.

Their relationships flounder and fail… Because of their career.

The person I used to know is a mere memory and a ghost of the past. The new career has changed the once super nice and kind person.

I am disappointed and a bit angry that I couldn’t stop the change because I noticed it too late. However, when somebody changes there is often nothing one can do.

We try.

As much as we try, we can and will be an asshole at times. We can be jerks and come across as rude and obnoxious.

We are not rude or obnoxious… we are kind and caring but we can get caught in a moment of newfound success, disappointment, anger, and frustration.

This can happen to the kindest of people and even with the best of intentions, we can all be rude sometimes.   Those are moments of weakness and moments or seconds of anger. A sudden and sometimes temporary changes in a person’s personality can happen. They do not see the forest for the trees. They cannot see the changes.

One cannot see the grass grow or see the way paint dries.

These changes can be hurtful and in the long term can be devastating to families and individuals. Occasionally, stop and assess yourself and see how you may have changed. Ask others if you are in doubt and take time out to see the life you are leading. Life is not about money; it is about experiences…

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
