We’re born, we grow and we change. Although change comes from a multitude of places, it’s how we change and come through change that matters.
Change initially comes through institutions such as school, through peer pressure, culture and society, as we’re expected to fit in and then conform. Moving away from home also changes us too. We move away, either to become more independent, fulfill our own needs, or go in search of a new life.
A new life will always change our perceptions on the way we see the places we leave behind, as we go on to form new perceptions about our new life and new surroundings. Any move will automatically affect our conscious, practices and feelings of where we were and of where we are now.
Although emotionally we will go on to create new thoughts and feelings about our new life, the old memories of how places used to be will still linger, just as we pave out our new path. It is our past and present that brings us to a new path and new relationships.
Of course, a new path can also lead us into anxiety and animosity, if not handled correctly. Navigating new thoughts around new people, different cultures and a new lifestyle, can potentially be stressful.
