It funny how things in life shape the way we turn out as person. Someone once told me that they had changed, and to be honest I had seen them change in front of my eyes. But it was something that they had said that is engraved into my mind. They said that “when someone changes its really scary” I don’t think that I understood it at that moment they had told me it.
When you change you almost have to let go of the past, and that’s scary. To leave everything you know, to change your personality, actions, whether that is for the better or for worse, it is scary. Sometimes it’s scary for the people around you, because it means that the way you interact changes. Everything that once was changes and the past is left in the past.
The real reason why we’re so scared of change is because of acceptance. The truth is as much as we’d all like to deny it, we want to be accepted by people... the society around us. And trust me I've been there, I've been to place where I was so confused because I’d changed so much that I’d almost look in the mirror and say “is this me?”. The truth is that I was actually happy with my change but the people around me didn't like it, some of my friends didn't like it. Alhamdulillah I’m so blessed to have such amazing people around me, like my mum who told me a quote “If you know yourself you’ll not be harmed by what is said by you”. I have to say that made me think, if I’m happy with myself, why should I care what others think. You shouldn't have to make yourself miserable to make people accept you. Anyway we all know that the truth is if someone really cares about you they wil be there by your side no matter what.
Remember when I had once said in one of my posts that I wanted to be "less afraid of change" and that exactly what i'm planning to do inshaAllah...don't let the fear of change stop you from being the person you believe you can be.
