People Change and Things May Go Wrong, but Life Goes On

Yeah, it’s really crazy how fast things can change in a short period of time. As life goes on, many things keep happening. People around you keep changing without you’ve ever realized. You notice that most of the things you know become different.

I realize that I haven’t achieved many things for the past few years. Meanwhile, people around me ain’t the same anymore. Here is a friend coming with a shocking news that she’s getting a divorce and expecting to be a single mom for the time being. Here is a friend who is getting more successful in her career. Here is a friend who is becoming happier with her family and new child. Here is a friend with a new achievement. Here is a friend with a new story. With those happening in my life, I just remain the same.


Many things have gone wrong for the past few months. Things didn’t go as I expected. The reality didn’t meet my expectations. I had tried to just accept the way it was. But, I cannot deny the fact I’m so regretful that I hadn’t tried my very best  to achieve what I want.

This past year has been something else… it’s opened my eyes to many things and many people. It’s had its ups and downs and ins and outs. And I believe we’ve all been able to take something from that and grow in our own imparticular ways. We’ve over come obstacles, and set in motion opportunities that can change our own individual lives.

Honestly, I’m so afraid of many things. I’m afraid I cannot handle the new situations. I’m afraid I will disappoint more people. I’m afraid I can’t do the best to seize a new day. I’m afraid of myself getting in a trouble I can’t control.

Just yesterday I found a journal and saw that I wrote many big dreams on it. Unfortunately, not a single dream has come true. It is embarrasing to tell you the truth. Maybe it’s just that I didn’t do my best. I could’t keep my commitment to try my best. I was just a coward who only dares to write a dream but never every really tries to make the dream come true.


People change, people grow. I’m so happy when my beloved people can finally achieve their dreams. I cherish the moment when they can finally smile from ear to ear and get ready to walk on their new path. Each person is growing with their own time zone. Even though I might get jealous with their success, but I keep reminding myself that I can choose my own way of life and be a better version of me.

My theory on life is that life is beautiful. Life doesn’t change. You have a day, and a night, and a month, and a year. We people change – we can be miserable or we can be happy. It’s what you make of your life.
– Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum

Talking about theories has become my habit recently. I’m only good at talking about theories and telling people what they should do with their life. On the contrary, I get lost on my life path. I know many theories about making life better, but–what a fool of me–I’m too afraid to apply any theories in real life to make situations get much better.


That’s why it’s time to be a more decisive person. It’s time to challenge myself to take new step every day. No matter how small each step I take, I will just keep going. Trying new things from time to time. Becoming more adventurous to get more life-enriching experiences.

So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality, nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit.
– Christopher McCandless

When talking about goals and targets, I may not rush myself. I just need to focus to finish every task I have. I have to be determined to achieve each goal I’ve set. Simply put to make each day count. Life itself is a bless.


Times and conditions change so rapidly that we must keep our aim constantly focused on the future.
– Walt Disney

I don’t really know what will happen in the future, in my life. Because a situation can change in the way we never really expect before. It’s ok to not being able to handle a situation and find a solution right away. Sometimes, it just takes more time.

All the scars and mistakes we had are actually things that make us who we are. It’s time to continue the journey. We might likely get new scars and make many more mistakes, but that’s how we’ll be really growing to be a mature person, right?
