Why is it that life has to change so quickly? Change is good it gives you more experiences and new ones!
But sometimes change needs to come in smaller loads, it seems like in my life at least when one thing changes, everything changes. And with that your whole world falls apart because you are lost. Being lost in your own life sucks because it seems like you yourself are the only one that can't help to fix it. When in reality the changes are usually your own fault such as when you go for that guy that you know is to good for you, or when you change friends, or when you decide to look at life differently.
Change always has to happen we just need to learn how to handle it.
Even when you look back at "how it used to be" you may see trials and difficulties but for some reason you may want to be back in that moment.
When you wake up in the morning you should look at yourself in the mirror and be proud of what you see. I'm not talking just about looks, I'm talking about how you carry yourself, what you say, and how you treat others.
So my advice to you would be to:
accept change no matter how difficult
Go for the "gold" because you truly do deserve the best and who's to say you CAN'T have it?
Don't dwell in the past, you can look back in the review mirror but you need to always keep your eyes on the road ahead of you.
Be proud of who you are, it's hard, but you are who you are (no Ke$ha reference intended)
And be friends to all, smile when you pass people, hold the doors open for strangers, give compliments when the opportunity presents itself, and always be willing to help another person.
