Has someone in your life ever told you that you’ve changed? It’s happened more than once and it happens to many of us but If the change is for the better, why does it even matter?

We all go through various trials and tribulations, challenges and triumphs that change who we are as people. If we didn’t, and remained stagnant, we wouldn’t grow. We wouldn’t experience new and different things. We would see the world from the same lens we always have and not be able to understand various perspectives. Change is good, not all the time but when it comes with new opportunities that may not have been afforded before, I’m all for it.

When I heard for the first time that I had changed, it was when I came back from college. Correct me if I’m wrong, but going away to school allows us to meet people from around the world and from all walks of life. It exposes us to situations outside of those which we have grown up in and for a lot of people, becomes the transition period into adulthood. For some, it is the first time living away from home and having to be responsible for self. So there’s no way I would apologize for choosing to do something different.

If we look at where we have come from and if you’re blessed enough to see where you are going, you will see that along the way, those moves require(d) change. So embrace it. Not saying you have to ‘act brand new’ but realize that the as the Greek philosopher Heraclitus said, “the only thing constant is change.”
