Changes are happening all the time, even if they are bigger or smaller, personal or professional we all change one way or another. As a child: going to school, listening to my family’s advice and always thinking of my grown-up life, of what I will be able to do, what I can achieve and what choices I want to make have been always something that my mind has thought about. Growing up, things changed and because my family was torn apart as my parent passed away we all had a big shock and that changed everything. At the beginning I did not feel it that much as I had lots of family but as I was growing up I started feeling alone and for a while I had a low morale and motivation.
Studying and reading helped me, changed me and polish me in what I am today. Along with these there are friends that I am grateful too, as they showed me how many wonderful things are in the world and that we do not need to live in the past. My life has changed so much since I realised all the good things that I can do. Once the personal life changed in better, I started thinking of my professional one and I realised that I by going abroad I will not only enrich my knowledge, but it will give me the opportunity to meet new people and see other perspectives as well, and this change is definitely a big improvement.
Over the years, I thought that changes are not constructive, that they only bring sadness and bad luck, but now because time passed, and I managed to develop personally I learned that changes are just a new way of learning. My big change was in my childhood, but I feel that now I change constantly in terms of perspective, of goals and seeing myself as a person who can overcome hard times. I am thankful for what I am today, proud of the work that I accomplish and ready to see where life is going to take me.
Therefore, even if my insecurities are still there I learned that everyone is changing, what is important is not to forget who we were and who helped us grow and move on. Being grateful is an act of kindness and for me is the best way to thank someone that helped me go through a difficult stage of my life. Change is good in life, as it makes us be more mature and motivated.
