    Can't log in. Passwd change doesn't work

    New to Kali Linux and have been learning how to use it. Somewhere along the way, I have changed the password and don't remember what it was. I have tried to reset it by following instructions to edit in GRUB, change the ro to rw replace "quiet" with "init=/bin/bash" and remove "splash". I then reboot with ctrl X. Once the screen loads, I enter the passwd command, enter my new password, confirm new password, and then receive the message saying that my password was changed. I then reboot. When the log in page loads, I try to use "kali" and then enter my new password but I get an error message saying that my password in incorrect.
    Not sure what to do from here to get back into Kali.
