Changes happen in our everyday lives from plans, to things were going to do and things were going to say and there's no way of avoiding that everything changes and its constant if we didn't have adaptation the world would be a mess, animals would have died off because they couldn't change their behaviors or actions to survive. Like the story Metamorphosis , the man changes into a bug almost cockroach looking creature and he still tries to press on and go to work as a salesman despite being ugly and completely changed. My opinion on this idea is that change is absolutely good for the world and everything happens for a reason, nothing is random and nothing is not planned change adapts you for your daily life and keeps you ready for the future and upcoming problems it also can make you tougher.

People generally like to stay in their comfort zone, they do not like changes. However, change is a necessary part of life, we see change in nature every day. Change can be positive or negative. We can choose to embrace the change or reject it, we also can choose to allow the change to have a negative or positive impact on our lives. Helmstetter lists six steps when dealing with change. First to recognize the change, then to decide if you are going to accept or reject the change. The next step is to choose your attitude toward the change, then choose how you are going to deal with it and what actions you are going to take.

Throughout their stories, they become less pessimistic, they adress their problems and they gain a newfound confidence and trust in others.

I have witness response to change through my friends and family members. Each individual varies in their skills and ability to accept change (Blais & Hayes, 2011). In order for change to be a healthy experience, it must be entered into with an open mind and positive attitude. When unforeseen change occurs within my family, we pull together to help each other through it. My network of friends have the same view towards change. If situations arise that are positive, we embrace and appreciate them. Conversely, we handle negative transformations by pulling strength from each other.

Change is when a person does not follow their everyday routine. They may want to try something different, or be forced to. Change can be for the good and the bad. Places can deal with change ranging from the weather, to the animals present, or the seasons changing. Also, objects can deal with change too. Objects like an iceberg can start to melt, or a forest fire can kill many trees in an area. As a human, we are the ones deciding on change. We are in a position to make big decisions and possibly even become a leader in order for change to happen. If one person starts to change, others will follow and hopefully, the change benefits all.
In my life, I have been exposed to a challenge called change. Change can occur in many different ways and is dealt with in many different ways. I have come to the awareness that change can be the deepest of all things. I always thought that change occurred when you moved to a state or when you lost someone real close to you. Those are a challenge to change, yes, but change doesn’t have to occur over a climactic incident. It can just appear overnight when your brain winds up when it’s time to do something different. Even with friends that you used to have and know that move on. For example, most of my friends from elementary school, I don’t even talk to them anymore.
