Why Change is Good and Helpful in Your Growth

Change is good, but it is something that is hard. Whenever we deviate from the norm, it stresses us out. Change is unsettling, but at the same time, change is a good thing. So how can this change be helpful to us? How can it guide us to grow into the person that we want to be? 

10 Reasons Why We Must Embrace Change

Change gives way to new things, and although the thought of change is scary, it is an opportunity to refresh your life. When you think about it, fighting change is a lot harder than embracing it. If you are fighting change you are in a constant battle with yourself. That said, here are reasons why you should embrace change.

1. Change Encourages Growth

Without change, we will remain stuck where we are. Even our bodies need to change so we can grow into adults. As you grow, you learn new things, you experience new challenges, and you learn lessons. All of these are essential for growth [1].

2. It Can Lead You to New Opportunities

A change in your career is an invitation to try new things. Of course, you can choose to decline or accept these changes, but it is also crucial to consider the benefits of a new career path. Yes, changing careers is risky, but at the same time, it is a learning opportunity. With some guidance and training, you can also manage the risks that come with these changes. 

3. Out with Old and In with the New

Change is like spring cleaning; you get rid of the old things so new things can come in. When things are getting old, we need to replace them with something new. Old tires need a replacement; old shoes need to be thrown away, and so on. If you want to change, you need to get rid of the old things in your life. It’s like leaving toxic friends so you can meet new ones that are good for you. Learn to eliminate bad habits and replace that time with habits that are more goal oriented.  

4. Paves the way for Improvements

Without changes, we will never improve as a person. Our attitude will remain the same if we do not open ourselves and go beyond what we have. You cannot improve if you do not do something differently. You will go insane if you expect a different result with the same actions.  But for that to happen, we need to do things differently and embrace change. 

5. Change Brings New Adventures

What is life without adventures? Dull, monotonous, and boring,? It is easy to get stuck at work, go home after a 9 to 5 job, or scroll through your phone without any excitement in your life [2]. Some people can live with that, but is it the life that you want? Of course not. Life is more than just living a routine. Without changes, you will be living that same life. But if you allow changes to happen, sit back and watch how your mundane life turns into an adventure!

6. It Ends a Bad Situation

Change is your ticket to a new life when you are unhappy, unfulfilled, or unmotivated. When you embrace these changes, you will realize that a bad situation will not last forever. You will also see that there is a solution to your problem or problems. If you reject these changes, the chance to do something about it will pass by. You will lose the opportunity to redeem yourself or get out of a bad situation. 

If you don’t like what you see in yourself or in life right now, change it! If you are not where you want to be in life this is your reality check. Whatever you’ve been doing is not the solution. 

7. It Brings Healing

They say time heals, but if you ask me, time cannot heal you if you don’t choose to change. You will be hurt over and over again. Let’s say you had your heartbroken. You cry, get angry, bargain t, and even get depressed.

If you choose to stay in that situation, you will be under stress, but healing comes from changing your ways. You can cry about how broken you are every day, but how can you get over your brokenness if you stay that way? 

Healing comes when you decide to change the way you see things. You will then realize that being heartbroken is an opportunity to work on yourself and a chance to meet someone better. whenever there is change, recovery follows. So embrace these changes; you will be happier in the end!

8. Changes Give us Hope

It is easier to stay put in a situation when everything else seems to fail. But, when you know that there are ways to improve it, and you have the knowledge to do something about it, you have everything you need to change your situation. It gives you hope that you can change if you don’t like how your life looks right now. 

9. Helps you Move On

No matter what your past is, you can use it as a lesson..  however, the past often has a way of keeping us down. Moving forward is a way to heal the past. But if you don’t decide to change, you cannot move on. Your total potential will not be in alignment. Personal development is a vital part of moving on. It is why embracing the changes in your life will kick-start that personal development. 

10. Teaches Your to be Flexible

One of the things you must learn in life is to be adaptable and flexible in any situation [3]. Changes make life chaotic, but it is through these changes that we understand how to embrace chaos. Learning how to accept these changes and staying consistent will make you confident in future situations. You’ll thrive in any setting because you will be able to handle it. Change is difficult, but it will help you flourish in the end. 

Your Takeaway

Yes, change is scary; it is venturing into the unknown. But change is very beneficial. It opens opportunities, promotes healing, and paves the way for a fresh start. If you are afraid of changes, don’t be! You are not alone in this ride. 

Take one step at a time, learn the process, and your life will turn around. We all fear change, but we are not born to be in a constant state of worry. Embrace change; you are one step away from a different life!
