    Sometimes when you tell someone that you will change for the better, and not make the same mistake that you have made before, and they tell you "No you won't. You'll do this again", it's not necessarily that they think you truly won't change; They are sometimes threatened by the thought of you changing, so they tell you that rubbish in order for them to maintain control over you and get you to believe that you won't. You changing for the better would mean that they no longer have control over you by trying to ingrain in your head that you will never change. So when you change, they can no longer control you. Truth be told, change scares some people, whether they are the ones changing, or they have a loved one who is changing. Just wanted to share this, because I felt inspired to do so. Have a nice week.

    Then again, some have heard that person make that claim over & over again, so they just expect more of the same.

    I guess it's all in how they say it;does it sound like they are saying it like they don't want change to come, or like they've heard it all before? For the most part, I think when people say this, it's because they've heard it all before, and really expect nothing more.
