Who were you two years ago? Three? Five? I guarantee you aren’t the same person you once were. Everyone changes as they get older, some for good and some for not. I like to think I’ve changed for the better, and hopefully those around me would agree.
Personally, I think I’ve gotten a bit better at standing up for myself when needed. If something is bothering me, I usually say it. I’m a better public speaker/presenter, a better photographer, and a lot happier than I used to be. Things aren’t like they used to be, but that’s not bad.
Change is hard, y’all. It takes time, and it can be scary, and kind of sucks sometimes. But you shouldn’t let that deter you. It’s how you grow. You can’t stay the same forever. That doesn’t work. You have to change to adapt to certain situations.
That being said, don’t change for people. Change for you. If you change for other people, you won’t like the person you become. It’s important to keep your values the way you see them instead of what others think they should be.
It’s okay to be worried, but you’ll get through it. So open your arms and greet the coming years. Don’t let the fear of change stop you from becoming who you were meant to be.
