Do you give yourself the freedom to change?
I don’t know how long I’m going to be writing articles for this blog (hopefully very long!), but the possibility is rather high that I will change some of my opinions.
And that’s OK.
Because we all grow. And I’m growing, too. So don’t be surprised about such a thing. In fact, expect it. 🙂
It’s about the freedom to change.
Do you still adhere to old beliefs that you once thought were appropriate, but hinder you now?
That’s not to say you shouldn’t have your set of core beliefs which stay relatively stable. But if you’re wrong, you can change your opinion. If you see things in a new way, it’s only natural to change.
Where do you know your belief or situation has changed, but you are afraid to let it go completely? It could be a habit. Or it could be a relationship.
Are you afraid to change, because your environment expects you to be a certain type of person?
Did you already change in the inside, but are you afraid of showing the real you?
Do you think you have to keep a facade up?
Your body changes all the time.
In fact, almost every part of your body changes constantly, you replace cells all the time.
There is one constant in our life, and it is change. It may sometimes not be obvious, but just look at some older pictures of yourself.
Compare those pictures from 10 or 20 years ago with a current picture. Yikes! Did you really have this terrible haircut back then? And the colour of those shoes! Apparently so. You liked those things back then. 🙂
“This is your world. Shape it, or someone else will.”
Embrace change. Shape it, so that it works to your advantage. If it’s possible, be the one that initiates the change, so that you decide what to change.
Life is change.
Opinions can change.
Beliefs can change.
So give yourself the freedom to change and do and say new things, even if they’re completely the opposite of your old self.
