“For years I suffered in an abusive relationship with my boyfriend as I thought we were soul mates and he is only abusive as he has some problems of his own in his life. But his behavior never changed and I suffered day after day. Then one day I realized I deserve better in life, packed my bags and left the apartment. The initial few months were difficult but moving out was the best decision of my life I feel now. Today I am in a happy fulfilling relationship with Mac and I would never have enjoyed this day had I continued in that previous sick relationship.”

You are not a tree that cannot change. You are a human being who can move around adapt, and change his thinking. Yes we all can change with time and if somebody is telling you that you cannot change ignore them as obviously they never tried enough or were too lazy to change. All you have to do is to make a decision that you have to change.
When we go to a sweets shop there are many sweets available in the shelves and we are given a chance to choose what we want. Similarly God presents us with a choice to choose what he sells in his shop and you can “decide” to pick things you like and ignore the ones you don’t want in your life.
If you are no longer in your twenties and your body metabolism cannot break the carbohydrates you are eating you must decide to stop going on an eating binge every day and begin to eat healthy.
