Is it really hard to change?

Is it really hard to change? For some the answer would be maybe and definitely yes, especially hard in changing the things or doings that we have been accustomed to but if you have a goal and determination to do so, easy or hard would just mean the same. Change they say is the essence of life. We should be willing to surrender what we are for what we could become. Nothing is wrong with it, if it is in the right direction. Change starts when someone sees the next step. The first step toward is awareness... the second step is acceptance.

“The doors we open and close each day decide

the lives we live.”
I read this story online and found this inspiring and worth to share. This story strengthens my belief in hope and reform.

Getting ink is painful what more if you have a face and body entirely covered with tattoos and you have decided to take them off? Getting rid of tattoos is far more painful than getting the tattoos in the first place.

Criminal Turns Back Time With 16Months of Laser Surgery

A Tattooed covered face, Bryon Widner was one of America's most violent and well known white supremacists and founder of the Vinlanders gang of skinheads. Hatred is displayed proudly all over his tattooed face and body.

But after getting married to a member of the National Alliance and started to have kids, Byron had a change of heart. His love for his family made him determined to change his life. He had worked hard to put their racist past behind them but the marks on his face and body makes it impossible for him to get a job.

With so much eagerness to get rid of his tattoos and dark past, Widner and his wife scoured the Internet trying to learn how to remove the facial tattoos safely but to no avail. He tried investigating homemade recipes, looking at dermal acids and other solutions. He reached the point where he was totally prepared to douse his face with acid in despair.

Hope came to them and shed light with the help of an advocate who ironically runs an anti-hate group. They found sponsors for Widner's surgeries. The surgery delivered short different amounts of bursts of energy, depending on the colour and depth of the tattoos. It took him many sessions for the ink to fade. The pain is insanely untolerable that after a couple of sessions, he needs to undergo general anesthetic for every operation.

After 16 months of 25 painful surgeries on his face, neck and hands, Widner's past has now disappeared from view, leaving him a happy father and employed member of society. Indeed there will always be a second chance for those people who seek for change.

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”
