All the Right Reasons

Dear Bloggers,

During this week we've discussed about embracing the true you, no matter what anyone says.  But, I would be remiss to not address changing.

It's very easy to be comfortable in a rut; to wake up every day and have the same routine over and over.  Though for some people it feels like it's slowly draining them, like a sleepwalker, the anticipation of change is enough to keep people in an uncomfortable, harmful situation.

Now, I'm not going to lie, changing sucks.  It requires a lot of introspection, a lot reexamining your past and the things that have hurt you.  In our own views, it's very easy to place ourselves as the hero in our own movies.  But by deciding to change, that's when you have to face the realization that maybe you weren't as innocent as you thought you were.  Not only that, but maybe you were actually the villain.  It hurts to have to see and acknowledge your own faults.

But pain comes with growth, and the only way that you can fully develop is to put yourself in the uncomfortable position to change.

It's not that you're bad, but that you can be better.

But with that will come the opinions of others.  Some will want you to change to be greater, and others will criticize you for trying to be better.  Most of the time, people who are trying to discourage you from changing is speaking from their own limitations and their own fears of not wanting to take their own steps forward.  However, it's your life and you're the one who is either empowered or limited by your actions.  So if you decide to change, make sure you do it for all the right reasons.

Stay Encouraged!
Have a great weekend!
