The Beauty Called Change!

Written by Stephanie Chuks (Contributor)

Many at times, we hear people lament “this is not the ‘you’ I used to know” “what happened to you?” “You have changed”.

We have been made to believe that change is a terrible thing and that people who change should be avoided like plague. Society has given us the mentality that people who no longer act like us have somehow obtained new pride and they should be avoided or better still be criticized.

They expect us to remain the same way we are. They feel comfortable if we are still like them both in actions and in results. They roll with us if we do the things they do and act the way they act. A “changed” person is looked at with scorn and told to their face how terrible their end will be.

Someone once said, “20 friends don’t stick together for 20 years.” But then, change can be a beautiful thing. It can be adorable — a lifesaver. Change is a gift from God to us. It gives us the ability to upgrade, to advance, to develop ourselves.

Change gives us the opportunity to become better people by creating room for growth. Over time, I have learned not to be swayed by criticism. It is no one’s fault if you refuse to grow, develop yourself, and become a better version of yourself.

Awake from your sleeping position my friend and accept the fact that change is constant. People won’t remain the way they used to be ten years ago just to fit into your ego-box. Aren’t you seeing the beautiful side of change? You can enjoy a lot of new advancements around you all because a change took place.

People are able to utilize their time on earth because they were and are still willing to embrace the moving tide of life. You were not created to be a rock. You are supposed to improve, advance, and evolve in order to be better than you were yesterday. It is important that you stop blackmailing people around you with your “you have changed” wail. Obviously, we’re talking about positive change here.

Stop making people feel guilty for developing themselves, their skills, and their talents. Change is a must and the earlier you accept it, the better. Chose to stop dwelling in your past, accept the flow, and become who you have been designed to be. Be the change you desire to see.

Yes o! Change is wonderful if we can see the positive part. Whoever doesn’t want to evolve will be stagnant.

Love, love, love this post and the message it puts forth. Change can be so scary, but I always find that the changes in my life that I don’t seek out myself turn out to be the best ones for me in the end!

That means that you are solely responsible for the outcome of your life. If you don’t make a change, nobody will make it for you.

Yes! Everyone and everything changes. I’ve changed so much in the past two months due to what happened in my life and even though it was a bad situation it made me a better person and I’m thankful for it

You may lose a few “friends” when you make changes, but your real friends will stick by you.

I think if people really love you and accept who you are, they will understand if you need to make some changes in your life or in your career. I always bear in mind that quote that I read a few years back which goes, “The only thing constant in this world is change.”

I believe that change can be both, for the worse or for the better. Use change to find hidden opportunities and keep growing.

I think change is mostly for the better. surely change for the worse is possible too

I believe in the beauty and importance of change in our lives. My greatest is actually to become stagnant or if I fail to grow anymore. Thus, I see to it that we try our best to strive to better and have a positive change in our lives.
