Never Change

May 3, 2012

We often speak or hear others speak of changing themselves. We cannot change that which comes our way. We do have control over how we respond and the choices we make.

How we respond and our choices begins with how we see ourselves. If we see ourselves as someone who needs to change, then we are starting with a negative view of ourselves. That’s a view that says to us “there is something wrong with me”. As long as that negative view is there, it will continue to prevent us from true growth. So let’s change that. Let’s see ourselves as not needing changing but rather growing and improving.

Change into yourself rather than changing yourself.

You might not think you needed to change if you hadn’t gone through all that you’ve gone through until now, the present. So from the present point, take what you have learned from the choices you’ve made so far and create the “newer and improved” you. Not the “new” but the “newer”. Tell yourself, “I am better than this” and “I can and will grow and improve”. Say “Show me what else I need to learn”. And grow, grow, and grow… what we say to ourselves matters to ourselves
