When you grow and evolve, you might come to realize that something you did or believed in the past is not something you want to continue doing or standing for. Just because you did it then, doesn’t mean you can’t do differently for the future. Hey, you can even advocate against something you once did or stood for.
It doesn’t make you a hypocrite or flighty or a ‘politician’. It means you grew, you evolved. You have a fresh perspective on the matter.
“I now see it differently than I used to in the past.” “I listened to you and your way makes so much sense.” “I used to think differently but then I had an experience and have a whole new view on this.”
