“Things can always change”
This saying is typically associated in a positive way. If you’re having a rough time with something and are struggling to feel optimistic, someone might say to you “things can always change”. This is very true, things change so quickly and I’ve even said this to myself during hard times. On the other side, things can also change for the worst when things are going great.
I’ve always been one of those people that will think about the worst case scenario in a situation. I’m almost more nervous when things are going great then when they aren’t. That same saying will pop into my head, “things can always change”. In a way, it’s helped me throughout life because I’m always prepared for the worst, I always have a back up plan. I think that if certain events in my life hadn’t happened, I might not have this way of thinking. Unfortunately, there have just been way too many ups and downs for me to get comfortable when things are going great. I just know that it’s only a matter of time before something happens to distrust my path. Now this might sound very negative, depressing or that I feel sorry for myself but in a way, it’s the total opposite.
I feel that because I’ve had some extreme highs and lows in my life, it has made me a very strong person. Yes, I know that there is going to be another low coming soon but I am prepared and will deal with it as it comes along. I feel that I am better at picking myself back up and pressing forward then I am sitting comfortably in a good place. I’m not sure if there are people out there that have a consistently even stream of good in their life but when the waters are calm, that’s when I’m the most prepared for the next wave.
