What Is Your Attitude Toward Change?

In the movie, Rebecca felt out of place when she moved to the city to go to college. But, with the help of Crawl, she could adjust to the new environment she was in.

When it was Crawl’s turn to go to experience life in the country, he became a fish out of water. In time, though, he was able to capture the hearts of Rebecca’s family members; he, too, was adored by the family. Slowly but surely, everyone could acclimate themselves to their new setup. 

Change is always there. In life, we’ll meet people of different backgrounds and encounter situations we’ve never been in before. These things are unavoidable, and we can either let them overwhelm us or do what it takes to adapt to them.

Though that’s the case, change is not always bad; it just depends on how we react to it. We can use it to grow, improve, and transform ourselves into becoming a better version of ourselves. In the same way, it can be an excuse to stay inside our shells and be locked in a box inside our heads.

That said, remember that the outcome of any change will always depend on you. So, choose wisely!
