Why do people change?

There are a variety of reasons why people change. In most cases people change because of the experience they had in the past. They can either turn bitter or better. Its a choice between living and dying.

I’ve spent traveling all over Asia and Australia for the past year and have met a lot of people along the way. Most of them gave me answers to the questions I keep on asking myself of how I want to live my life.

A year was all it took to make a difference. A lot of self-reflection and realization that life is not just about living comfortably but being able to get through life’s challenges successfully as an individual. It’s being able to do and concentrate on the things I want for myself and not worry about others’ happiness. To be my own, without any distractions, the feeling of being content with my own choices.

I’ve had this urge of wanting to turn the situation around. I see myself  in a cross road. One path may be tough and another is a straight path. Most people would take the stress free path,  usually the experience is the same and already expected. The other path is the road less traveled.

“Be the change you want to see in the world” – Gandhi

The choices you make everyday, let it be something that makes you grow and become a better person. Let it make you feel fulfilled and make you feel that your life has a purpose. Don’t listen to what others tell you what your life’s supposed to be. We are after all unique.
