I often question myself whether change is for the better or worse.
Over the last century, change in the life of human beings has increased its pace and beyond our wildest expectations. While, some may believe that change is always for the better, others strongly support the idea of sticking to old ideas and norms. Change can mostly be attributed to technological or scientific breakthroughs which change the way we look at things around us on a daily basis.
Those who are afraid of change and try to secure themselves by doing safe and familiar things are living in denial. Even if they resist from changing their lifestyle, they cannot stop the world around them from changing. Sooner or later, they realise that their familiar jobs no longer exists or that their safe behaviour patterns may no longer be accepted.
On the contrary, some people say that change is always for the better. They believe so because it brings about new opportunities and new experiences which enthrall our life journey. However, reaching the conclusion that change is inevitable is not the same as assuming that ‘change is always for the better’. Unfortunately, it is not always that changes are made because they have good impacts for the majority of the people. Rather, such changes are made to accumulate wealth in the hands of the rich and powerful people.
In conclusion, I strongly believe that change can be stimulating and be energizing for those people who pursuit it themselves. On the other hand, when change is imposed forcefully upon people, it may not necessarily have good outcomes.
