Change Can Be A Good Thing

You've changed. 

When someone says this to you, do you see it as a bad thing or a good thing? I used to think that this statement was always a negative but recently I've changed my mind. Change can be a good thing. Not all the time, but it 100% can be a positive. Change can come into a lot of different conversations and situations. A change in your career, drifting apart from someone or learning something new about yourself. When someone has said the phrase 'you've changed', it may have possibly been in a negative aspect but do we really need to think of a different way to say this? Instead we may have wanted to say, you seem happier, you seem stronger? I will admit, I'm sure I have used this phrase before or thought about it at least, but I have seen a whole new look on this phrase now and I feel so much better for it. 

I think that change can be seen as improvement on a person. This person has grown into a better person which makes them so much happier. It is so hard for a lot of people to make changes to become better, so they should be applauded and complimented a lot more! People making these changes to themselves or their lifestyle can be so positive and this change is growth! It may be improvement on their mental health, they may have worked hard at the gym, or they may have become more independent and strong. Whatever the case, no matter how big or small, change can be seen as someone growing into a better person and I think this is an amazing thing to see in yourself and others.

Change can be seen as a negative thing, don't get me wrong. Life isn't perfect. Plans may change, people around you may change and your situation might not be what you expected. But that's ok. I believe that you can always turn things around, no matter what! These negative changes can be turned into something positive and you can learn from things that didn't go the way you wanted. If you feel like it's a negative change in yourself...simple, change it. If it's someone around you that's changing and having more of a negative impact on your life, I would suggest moving yourself away from that situation. I know this can be a really difficult one as people may not always turn out the way you expected, but everything happens for a reason. Even though you thought you were going to be with that person forever, or friends for life...unfortunately things may change. But there will always be something better around the corner. 

Change can also be in terms of the physical things around you. Your location, job or home. But it's so normal to get attached to your surroundings, but change can be a good thing here! This one is all down to personal preference and will be different for every single person. Some people may be happy staying in the same house or town for the rest of their lives as they feel most comfortable and safe there...and this is totally fine! But you may be someone who is wanting to experience living in a new location or a ready for a new home to start making new memories. Change can be a great thing in terms of moving. The excitement, new opportunities and new surroundings! This can be an amazing step in life for sure. Weather it's your first home, a new home with a new family member or a brand new place for yourself! The list goes on! Change in terms of your career can also be an incredible step in life too. You could move onto something that you have dreamed of your whole life, move up in your profession or start something completely new that you have never done before. There will always be up's and down's in the career life, but if you work hard, you can get there!

At the end of the day, change means something different to everyone. We all have different circumstances and people in our lives, so anything could happen. 'You've changed.'. The next time you hear someone else say it, let it be a reminder to you that it doesn't always mean what you think. The next time someone say's it to is most likely a positive thing? And the next time you feel like saying it to someone, take a step back and think, is there a better way to word this? Change can be a positive thing and most people like to see it as a negative thing. Just try and slowly change you opinion and mindset on it and thank me later. 

'It takes change to make change.'
