Change is something inevitable; all people including me are changing every day, and their lives are changing too. During the last five years, my life have changed a lot on some aspects while remained constant on others.
When I look at myself to see the things that remained constant, the first thing I see is my friendship ties with my old friends. For example, when I was studying at high school, I had three close friends. When we went to different colleges, I thought that I would lose them but fortunately, our friendship remained and I am grateful for that. Furthermore, I am still living in the same country that I was born in, and this is something that confuses me sometimes, because I love to travel and live in places other than my home country.
However, my life was also changed a lot during those five years. Comparing myself now and then, I see a huge improvement on my ability of learning and adapting. For instance, when I was a freshman at university, I was trying to learn things that were totally new for me and at that time they were very complex and hard. Nowadays, I have a full time job at one of the best software companies on my country, being able to learn, adapt, and try new things that were considered not possible before. I also see an improvement on the aspect of my social relationships; five years ago, I had some problems regarding social anxiety and depression, and I was going into very hard circumstances that led me eventually into depression. However, I worked hardly to solve them, and fortunately, I managed to change for the better. Now I see a better version of myself; the problem of social anxiety had totally gone. Furthermore, I am able to open up a talk with random people.
To summarize, some aspects of my life remained the same while others changed to better. I am thankful for what kind of experiences I have had, and I am eager to see what the coming days have for me.
