    2. I think personality can change. It doesn’t happen in a snap, but if someone is willing to change it’s not impossible. For example, I was very shy, timid, and scared of speaking my mind when I was younger. There was a saying I always kept in mind, “A fool if he holds his tongue passes for wise”. I always hid in the crowd by not speaking up. Living that way was comfortable, but I was not happy or proud of myself. I felt some need to change and to push myself out of my comfort zone. So, I encouraged myself to be a little braver and do something new that the old me never did. Making this group and gathering people was one of those changes. Mahatma Gandhi said, “things don’t change, I change.” Now I want to keep this in mind. I fixed the grammar and sentence structure in some places. This was a good paragraph. I loved it (:
