Here's an old post I've written ages ago, but I feel it's adequate for the current me. So yea, enjoy the change!
Change..Why is it that some changes in life are so difficult to take? And why some has struggled to cope well with new changes in life?
I believe change is an inevitable part of life. It challenges one to let go of the past, especially the comfortable, old ways of doing. Change is just like a wall that one must strive to climb over it.
Alexander Graham Bell wrote, "When one door closes another door opens; but if we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the ones which open for us."
Too often, have we sulked over past failures and thinking what should have been and what could have been rather than looking forward. Why? Why are we scared of changes! Simple..We hold on to the old because we still treasure it, may it be a relationship or the passing of someone, who was dear to you. It was sentimental. It was something special.
True. I’ve tried hard and long enough to try to keep things in my life unchanged, and pretend that things were still the way it used to be. But, what gone is gone. And hey, there are still millions of doors just waiting for you to open it.
Change is just like an illusion that one can manage just by controlling the world around you. As the great Gandhi said, "You must be the change you wish to see in the world. . Change is most effectively managed from within ourselves!"
Changes are hard but what is there you can do about it? Learn to let go ! Let go of your security blankets and abandon former perceptions. Only then you will move forward and feel better about it.
Change, like everything in life, can be beneficial when harnessed.
Now, where is that door that Ghandi was talking about..
