Change is inevitable. Change is constant. We experience change every day, it is a part of our daily life; it comes in different forms, from the ever-evolving advances in communication technology, to the unfortunate passing of a loved one, developments in cures for diseases, to letting go of a bad relationship. Personal growth is a result of change.
"Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything."
– George Bernard Shaw
