Change Isn't A Bad Thing
The only constant in life is change.
I never liked that phrase, but it’s true. Everything in life changes, and that is a guarantee. Every change, no matter what brought about the change, will provide new opportunities. You will grow. You will become different. You will change.
Change is uncomfortable, especially at first, but it helps us learn how to navigate life. It forces us out of our comfort zone, our of our “normal”. We learn what we can and can’t live without, what we are and are not willing to deal with, and what we want out of life. Really, it teaches us that “normal” is always in flux. And those are all good things to know.
When those we love change, it can catch us off guard. We may feel like they hadn’t been telling the truth about who they were, or we may even think they’re lying to us now. Neither is probably the case. Growth and experience change us and make us see the world in new ways.
No matter what change we face, though, it’s important for us to show grace to others. Take time to understand each other. Show compassion. Love, no matter how hard it may be in that moment.
Change in and of itself is neither good nor bad. It is just a fact of life. It exists. What we make of change, how we handle it, is what is important. We can be closed-minded and angry, or we can be willing to open ourselves up to the new possibilities.
It just requires creating a new “normal.”
