"You have changed." Or, "You have been changed."?

1. "You have changed. Now you look different."

2. "You have been changed. Now you look different."

We actually don't change ourselves on our own, we just have been changed over time.

Which one is correct?

    Philosophically, yes, but the first is the way you say it.

    Ordinarily one would say "You have changed".  "You have been changed" implies that some person deliberately changed you.
