|I used to absolutely hate change. I guess it was only natural since humans are creatures of habit. Looking back on 2011, it was a year that I embraced change. I made the decision to change my major (went from Biology to Undecided to finally Mass Comm/Journalism), broke up with my boyfriend of over a year (it was tough, but mutual), transferred schools for the year, moved in with my grandparents (my biggest support system), got a different job, and despite one mental breakdown during finals week, I figured out how to keep myself sane. |
I made mistakes, such as kind of dating a co-worker (Never, I repear Never do this), getting involved with my now former best guy friend, making some money mistakes, and others, but overall, I wouldn't change a thing. I finally started to become my own person. I stopped pretending that I was someone I'm not. I ended volatile friendships. I broke up with "the love of my life" and learned that it was okay to be single. I learned to not let my parents effect my life. I learned to accept that I may have had "mental problems" but I can be successful (I got a 3.5 GPA last semester...suck on that!). I'm doing well in life without being on any medication (go me!). I dealt with a really tough surgery that changed my outlook on life. I gave up on questioning things and worrying about what other people would think and did them. I started to live life for me.
I have learned to accept change and embrace it with open arms like an old friend. I don't believe in predestination or any other similar religious mumbo jumbo, but I believe things happen for a reason. That reason is to help you learn lessons and become a better person. Without change and struggle, I would not be the person I am today. I am finally genuinely happy. Yeah I will probably have more tough times thrown my way, but now I have hope. It's that thing that keeps me going; what I needed all along.
