why do we insist on keeping an outdated version of ourselves and others who have changed?

i got the paragrah below by email this morning, i don’t know who the author is.
this realisation was a very important one for me, a year ago, and changed me drastically.
unfortunately, few people around me accepted my change, while most
continued to insist to see me the way i was.
i hope this finds a place in your personal development:

“Time, which changes people, does not alter the image we have retained of them.
Each of us is molded and crafted by the hands of time and
our many experiences on the journey through life.

However, I may keep an outdated vision of myself, my friends and/or loved ones,
as if they hadn’t changed. By keeping old images in my mind
I keep people trapped in the past of who they were without seeing their changes.
I myself remain trapped in that same past of who I was without seeing
my changes.

It’s time to release myself and others from the cage of the past and
see everyone with new eyes.”

yours, will
