Change is a curious thing.
It is an ancient phenomenon on the earth– indeed, present since the beginning of mankind.
Yet, people do not always welcome it or, worse, are oft averse to it, even to this day and age.
However, the process of change isn’t affected by what people think. It carries on, brushing against everything in its way, whether or not people think they like it.
“He who rejects change is the architect of decay. The only human institution which rejects progress is the cemetery.” ~Harold Wilson
Things change and people change. It is the way of life and part and parcel of being alive. It’s not always for the better but it need not always be for the worse. What’s more important is how you adapt to it when it happens. Being bitter about it, denying its presence and all such behaviour is futile in negating its reality. Best be cheerful about it and adapt.
People said that I’ve changed since the days of my youth. I tell them I’m glad because it means I’m progressing, not stagnating. My friends cheer and encourage me. My enemies jeer and envy me.
“The only man I know who behaves sensibly is my tailor; he takes my measurements anew each time he sees me. The rest go on with their old measurements and expect me to fit them.” ~George Bernard Shaw
Therefore, welcome change like an old friend. It’s here to stay.
