There is one universal truth about humans, we are terrified of change. We get so used to things as they are, to life as it is. We slowly adapt to everything that comes our way. And we want for everything to stay just as it is. You wish you never have to be hurt again. That you never have to make another big decision in your life. At one point you ask yourself why can’t everything remain as it is, I was okay with everything as it was.
There will come a time when you will face this big decision. To accept change, and go against everything you’ve built so far, or to discard change and remain as you were. Most of people do the second thing. Because it’s safer. You don’t have to change anything about yourself. You tell yourself that is because you’re the way you are. When deep down you know that is not true. You are just terrified of something new, which could be amazing, but also could end disastrously. So you don’t accept change. Maybe you even think you don’t deserve it. But you do. You deserve everything. I can’t stress this enough, we all deserve everything. We all deserve to feel peaceful and safe and loved. We all deserve to be accepted and understood. We weren’t born to be lonely and to feel sorry for ourselves. If you are feeling sorry for yourself, please stop. Because if this is the case, it means there is something you could do to change it. But you are afraid to change it.
We all must grow, each and every day. If you accept that this is who you are, you won’t get far. You will be lonely and restless. Know your flaws, know what makes you tick. And sometimes go against your gut feeling. You won’t regret it, I promise. In the end we don’t regret things we did, we regret those we didn’t. So make the list of things you didn’t do shorter.
If you want something, grab it. Hold it. Never let it go. Even if you think you don’t deserve it. It is not about deserving something. It is about accepting the fact you are a different person every day, you grow daily. And with this growing you will come to a place where you will feel like you deserve it. Accept change. With change comes happiness. If there is something in your life that is bothering you, making you feel uneasy, change it. Change your attidute towards it. But never, ever say that this is who you are. Because you will be a different you tomorrow.
