If there is one thing in our life that we are constantly going through, it is the state of change. For the most part, it is a change for the better, though it may not seem like it in the moment.
But what does it mean to me? It means learning, growing, evolving. It means, things are different now, and some people don’t know how to deal with that. And that is totally fine. Naturally, when your world shifts, and things fall out of place, you are at a loss for words. You have no idea what to do. That’s because different means you cannot predict what is going to happen next. As boring as predictability is, it is comfortable and easy. It is your safe zone.
So, why do things have to change?
Simple, because it is part of time. It is a bittersweet human thing. We are born, we live, and then eventually, we die. That is the cycle, and believe it or not, it is a cycle of change. We do not stay the same. It is almost impossible to. We have to adapt, it is practically in our blood. Sometimes, we change because we have to. Because the way that we are, and the way we are living life, just is not working out. Sometimes, the change is inevitable. Someone is thrown into your life who shakes up your usual routine, and you cannot do a damn thing about it. In my opinion, those are the best changes, the ones that come unexpectedly.
And they take time to get used to. It is different for everyone. Some people adapt just like that, while others need a couple of days, or months, or even a year, to get used to the shift. Even throughout that period, things will change.
But there are far, far better things ahead, than any we leave behind. Throughout the changes in your life, you will find the people and the things that will stay. You will need them to remain a constant when you are undergoing a change. What is important is, regardless of what changes in your life, you remember that you are in control of some of those changes. It is your life. You can change what is changing, you can step in. But, it is probably happening for a reason.
