Why its okay to change as a person


Have you ever noticed a change in someone? They act differently than they did before, they may use different phrases or have different interests than what you remember. You may have noticed these changes within yourself at certain times in your life.
Its okay to be different to who you were a year ago.

We all grow and change in time and today I wanted to write a little bit about why its okay to change as a person. You're never the same person you were last year, we learn as we go through life, in fact, you've probably changed slightly as a person since yesterday even. It's integral to our well being that we do change as people, being stuck in one frame of mind for too long is toxic to our mental well being.

In order to grow as a human being, we must be versatile within ourselves to change, we must be adaptable to change in our lives and we must be accepting of change in others too as they grow on their journey through life. 

Personally speaking, I've changed a lot over this past year, I've faced challenging times and I've grown through them. I'm definitely not the same person I was. 

However, it doesn't always have to be challenging times that bring about a change. Everyday life is full of tiny realisations, its bursting full of moments of clarity, but it's how we use this realisations to benefit us that determine whether or not we grow and change as a person.

As soon as you start noticing these realising is where the fun really starts. If you want to grow as a person take the time each day to realise something. It may be as simple as how good you are at your job, or how someone makes you feel. Harness these realisations by recognising them as such and you'll find day by day you grow as a person.

Without change, our lives would stay stuck in one place, both in a physical sense and emotionally, it's a very unhealthy way of living. 

Bringing us back to our original point, it's okay to not be the same person you were a year ago, in fact, its a good thing and those around you should accept that. It's okay to be a completely different person in fact, as it's by staying stagnant that we take the joy out of our lives. 

If you have any thoughts please let me know in the comments section as I'd love to read your opinion on this.

  2. Nice post. I agree with you, I think change is very important. Sometimes it is hard to accept it but you just have to get used to it.


  3. Hopefully, we never stop changing because we never stop learning and experiencing new things. I look back on the past and have only gratitude for the growth that has happened over the years. The roles we play in life bring out strengths we did not know we have - becoming a wife, a mother, a leader - were all full of surprises that I would not trade for the world.

  4. I feel like some people think you can't change and grow. Thanks for this post proving that you can. I know I try to learn, grow and change all the time .

  5. Love this! Although, I think in general you should live by mostly the same morals and values, changing what you like, do, act, can mean you get to know yourself even better!

  6. Yes to all of this!!1 I've definitely changed from the person I was many year ago, even one year ago! Change is never a bad thing and it's allowed me to broaden my horizons while having new experiences!

  7. Completely agree with you. I am a completely different person that I was a few years ago. I've also grown so much since just last year. Change is so good and it just means we are still learning and experiencing new things.

  9. Such a nice post dear.

  10. I definitely agree with you on this! If you're not constantly growing and changing as a person then surely you're not learning anything over the years? Life is about continuously progressing and moving forward. x

  11. Change is definitely a part of growth.

  12. Completely agree!! Change can be a great thing!!

  13. Nice post! I relate. I often tell people that the only constant is change. Our minds constantly jump from one thought to the next. No two breath are the same. With each passing second, our aging bodies change. Everything in constant flux. Anyways, this idea brought me comfort in times of struggle; that there were moments of joy and peace weaving through the sorrow. Thanks for sharing!


  14. I love this post <3
    Changing in a good way means that you are evolving as a human, something we all should aim to do.
