Times change, people change. We’re obviously not the same people we were about two years ago. And what changes us, are the experiences that we have throughout our lives. If you’ve opened this post then you definitely must be a Sex and the City fan. As much as we fans wanted to be a Carrie Bradshaw, we know for a fact that we can’t be her.

Honestly, I’m a big quiz-taker. Every time I saw an SATC quiz, I’d instantly take it. Most of the times, I was declared a Carrie, until very recently – I took an SATC quiz and the results were not the same anymore – I was no more Carrie, but a Miranda Hobbes.

Anyhoo, you don’t have to take a quiz to know who you are – these 11 (then and now) signs will prove your transition from a Carrie to a Miranda:

1) Your Search For Love

Then

It was all about the idea of a “ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming love.”

Now

The idea of “inconvenient, consuming love” is ridiculous!

Then

You expected the love of your life to give you as much as you gave him.

Now

You’ve come to terms with the morons in the world and you lose it, without really LOSING IT!

8) Men And Their Choices

Then

Men are superficial creatures, and anything beyond that was hard for you to believe.

Now

Opinions were your source of survival.

Now

YOU are your own source of survival.

To conclude, Miranda and Carrie were amazing people in their own right. And even though you’ve been through this transition, there might be a little Carrie in you or somewhere near you (as in a friend, not a ghost #justsaying) – you might outgrow those remnants or live with them.
