I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and received a BA degree in International Trade, as well as a Master of Education in Counseling with a concentration in community mental health. Earlier in my career, I spent time working in the field of substance abuse and am part of numerous counseling associations.

Change is good for you. But unless you let go of your resistance and learn to relax into life, you will continue to perceive change as your enemy. The only way to change life is by a total commitment to making changes that would affect the total human being.

The more difficult the situation, the more change is required, the more exhausting it will be. However, a different set of motivation required to get to the finish line.

It enhances our relationship with ourselves. When we do not change those things that do not enhance us, we stagnate and become complacent.

As we change and grow, we gain a deeper understanding and appreciation which then translates to how we see others and the world around us.

Change in life is a constant, who we are this instant is not the same person we were yesterday because of every experience, no matter how trivial we think it may be shapes and molds our decision-making process.

Change brings about the release of relationships that are toxic. Only when we go through this change will we be ready to form healthy relationships with others.

Change is so important in life. We are all so afraid of the unknown but don't realize that change is needed for us to grow, learn, and experience.

change is necessary sometimes even if you feel comfort with the current situation , If you don't think and change then you could be described as an object not human.

Changes often force us to adapt in ways we’ve never experienced, which can be a major driver of personal and even professional growth and development.

By embracing change and meeting it head-on with excitement, you can learn not to be so set in your ways which can help you maintain a more positive attitude.

why we need change? it's a great question! There is no one single correct answer, there are many correct answers. Change including : a) behaviors b) our view of things c) making new experiences... change makes us discovering secrets of life, correcting our mistakes, meet new people...
