One of the toughest things in life is knowing who you are and sticking to your values. There are going to be times in life where you aren’t sure who you are or what you want from life, but you’ll figure it out. There will probably even be times where you make drastic changes in your life in order to figure it out. There will even be times where you realize you don’t stand for the same causes or even believe in your beliefs at times.
When I was in a place where I had no clue what I was doing or even wanted to fo anyore I accepted a job offer in another province, packed up my stuff and moved with a weeks notice. At the time I thought it was a little crazy, but looking back at my decision it was definitely the right choice. That move got me our there living life day by day just making memories. I got out of my shell and realized that I wasn’t really who I thought I was. I changed my look my style and my whole life while there. I even went to school for a major I found interesting but found out I didn’t want a career in.
When I moved back to my hometown I got a lot of backlash from not conectting with a lot of my old friends. From my side I had no desire to try and reconnect with people that I had nothing in common with anymore. I’m not at all sorry for only keeping in touch with friends that had nothing in common. Instead I sought out groups and friends with similar interests so we had things to talk about and people that I could bounce ideas off of if need be.
I hope that you are never afraid to make changes in life because sometimes they’re necessary. Sometimes the changes are going to be scary, but you also never know how many opportunitiesyou could open yourself up to by getting out there and making vhanges. From my experience making big changes in life may close some doors, but it opened up so many more that I had never imagined.
