Have you ever randomly talked to a friend that you haven’t heard from or seen in 5 years? Do they seem dramatically different than what they used to be?
We’re all growing up. We’re evolving and we’re constantly learning about ourselves. We’re twenty somethings and we’re trying to take on the world as young adults. We aren’t the people we used to be in high school and we aren’t who we were a year ago. It’s okay to change.
The other night, my roommates and I were chatting in the living room about how people can change. Some change for the better, and some change for the worse.
The ones who change for the worse tend to break my heart because a lot of those people have no idea what they’re capable of. They don’t know how amazing their life is and how much potential they have. None of them realize all that they can do to live their lives. They graduate from high school, go to college for a while, make poor decisions, end up dropping out and never getting their degree and then end up making one mistake that ruins their entire life.
When somebody makes a huge mistake in his or her life, the only thing that they can do is learn from it and try to make the bad situation better. That person would have to make a huge lifestyle or attitude change because in order to get out of a bad state of mind, there needs to be positivity.
The ones that change for the better are the ones that will go far in life. When someone has a positive change in life, it sets a mindset for a super optimistic future. It gives them motivation to do well in life and to succeed. It gives them a reason to keep living every day. It gives them a chance to do well in the world. In high school he/she might have been a super shy person, made poor decisions, and didn’t really have anything going for them. Well over the years, they landed their dream job, married the person they’re meant to be with, got a huge promotion at work, and so much more.
Changing for the better could be a wonderful thing if you allow it to be. You have to be open to the idea of change in order for it to take affect. You have to be willing to surrender to the experience and let things happen the way they’re supposed to. Allow for it to happen and just let it happen.
It’s okay to change.
