We all go through changes. Sometimes they are unexpected. Sometimes they are planned. Sometimes they are wonderful changes and sometimes they are devastating. But all changes are a part of who we are and who we become.
If we never experience the negative, we won’t know how to appreciate the positive. The same can be said of the bad things helping us to appreciate the good in life. But what it all comes down to is accepting the fact that those changes do, and always will, come.
I have had many sad, terrible and negative changes occur in my life, but I have also had wonderful and beautiful changes come along. While it is seemingly impossible to accept or deal with the negative changes, we nearly always manage.
The key to accepting the unhappy changes is to remember that they are temporary. All things are temporary. The bad changes don’t last forever and neither do the good ones. Life is all ABOUT change.
To quote Anakin Skywalker’s mother, “You can’t stop the change..any more than you can stop the suns from setting.”
The answer? Accept that there WILL be change. Accept that you CAN handle it. Accept that it WON’T last forever.
And for those who are so inclined, this is not meant to be one of those sappy, uplifting messages.. just a venture into my truth.
