my dear friend,
no matter how old you are, change is part of your life – so I am part of your life, whether you want it or not.
I know, it is safe to stay where you are, and comfortable, and easy. But it is an illusion, it is impossible to stay who you are and where you are.
You change every day, your body gets older, your mindset changes due to new thoughts and conversations you had and emotions you felt. There is no denying this, even if you might not consciously realize it.
Furthermore, this world that you live in, is currently changing as quickly as never before. Every day, new technologies arise that change our everyday life and take over our thinking processes. Every day, new enemies fight each other and new alliances are built and compromises are found. New ideas are enhanced in think tanks worldwide. I could go on forever, but the point I would like to make is: many of the repercussions of these developments affect you, challenge you, change you. You can not choose this nor can you close your eyes before this truth forever.
I am change, and I am neither good nor bad. I just am a part of this world, of this life on earth, of your life. You can not negate my existance. Maybe you can try to accept it instead.
And maybe, maybe with time, you can welcome me in your life like an old friend.
I would like that, since the road always seems easier with a friend by your side.
