The only constant in life is change...
A person’s life progresses in cycles. Sometimes you are energetic, at other times lethargic. Sometimes your mind is sharp, at other times dull. Whether it is your body, your mind, your relationships, or your spirit, nothing about you stays the same.
It is an expectation of modern life, however, that things, especially good things, should never change. If you are happy now, you should strive to stay happy or be happier! If you’re not, you’re doing something wrong! If your relationship is having a dip, here are 12 things you must do immediately to turn it around!
No wonder antidepressants, mental illness, and suicide are at epidemic levels - people have been conditioned into the fantasy of “happily ever after” when the reality is that life is nothing but constant change. Like the stock market, the more you try to artificially maintain a trend or mode and not allow its normal cycle, the greater the strain it places on you, and the harder and deeper the inevitable fall is when it occurs.
Life is not a linear progression; it is a cycle, like waves washing up on a beach. Rather than fight the inevitable change, you should instead embrace it, accept it, and during the down times, remind yourself that this is only a cycle, and better times will come again.
