Change is a Process

No one can avoid change. Life is changing. Time is changing. People change, and so do we.  Even if we don’t want to, physically we are going to change as we get older. There are seasons in life when we have to learn to let go and move on, and in order to do that, we have to change. Change our habits, change our attitude, change the way we look at things.

We can’t hold on to the old, broken dreams that have been shattered by harsh reality, and even if we don’t want to, we have to change direction. We have to learn to accept things the way they are. We can’t force ourselves to think or look the same way as we did before that terrible thing happened and ruined everything. We may finally accept the reality that we need to change. We know that we HAVE to change, but the question is, is it that easy?

The First Step to Change

Many of us know that change is not easy at all, and if we look closer to reality, change is often painful. Well, there may be some changes that are easier to handle than others, but I think the most difficult ones are those related to people or relationships. These relationships are not only with others but more importantly, with ourselves.

Change is inevitable if we want to live happier or live a better life. It may not be easy, but there is always one simple step to begin the journey. It is to embrace the fact that change is a process. It may be a long process and the result won’t come instantly but bear in mind that it’s worth a try.

Have you ever been through a difficult time that required you to change? Please share your opinion or experience in the comments 🙂

  1. Being loyal is different to refusing the change. I myself am experiencing this nowadays. I have to be loyal to my own principle, yet I must save myself by changing necesary things for my well-being. I want to be happier and live simpler life, i guess that is the main reason of the change. Thanks for inspiring mr, Words Candy.

    1. Hi Juli!
      Thank you for visiting my blog and for leaving a comment. I do understand what you are saying. There will be circumstances where we need the wisdom to decide how much we are going to change to adapt to our situation. In this case, I agree with you that we have to hold on to what we truly believe. The kind of changes that we need I think is the one that can help us grow our internal capacity to respond to or to cope with an external situation. An example of this internal capacity is patience or perseverance. This inner growth will eventually lead us to a happier and simpler life, as you said 🙂
      PS: Due to a few considerations, I no longer use the name Words Candy and have now moved to another domain.
