Good Morning World!
Change is and will always be a big part of life, something that you cant help from happening. So the only thing to do is embrace change. By being resistant to change you’re only hurting yourself. One little event can totally change your life plans, so make plans as they come. Don’t plan ahead, and don’t be mad when plans change.
Throughout my life I have had my fair share of change. From my parents divorce to something smaller like changing my university course last minute. There are some things that are purely out of your control like my first example. When this happened to me I was 8 years old, and this change affected my life more than anything else. Not being able to live with my dad affected me on a personal level, but I realise looking back at it now that it was a good thing as living in an unhappy household with both pareant would have been worse than happily living with one parent.
Change can come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, other people can change and this may force you to change, but sometimes you change yourself and it can influence the rest of your life. Without change I would never be where I am now. When I originally applied for university I wanted to study sociology and if I was perfectly honest with myself I only applied for the benefit of my mother who thought university was the way forward. But with time, I realised that I am not cut out for sociology and what I really wanted to do was become a teacher.
Things happen for a reason, and you have to accept that. It isn’t a bad thing, and even if it may seem like it is at first. You’ll look back at that experience and realise you wouldn’t be who you are now without it. You have grown as a person, and that’s the best change of all.
