i believe change isnt always a good thing.some people are afaraid of change because it means something ne. A change in life can mean a lot of different things. For example divorce can be a negative way of a ching in life.I believe change can also mean good things like having kids or getting married.If a change is going to be made for yourself make it for the better.In the 8th grade a new boy joined one of my classes. He was very quiet and didnt talk or hang out with anyone.I tried talking to him a few times but only got one word responces . For some reason i wanted to get to know this boy. i kept talking to him in class even though he would rearly talk back.Pretty soon he started talking and told me about his life.He had traveled all over the united states and been to many different schools.He told me he never spent time trying to make friends because sooner or later he would be moving. As we got to know each other his mom told him they were going to move in the next month just before school was out.I told him not to be sad that no matter what we would always be friends.When he left i was really sad but he had changed.He was a more positive person and wanted to make friends. To this day me and this person still write and call eachother and no matter what he tells me he would never forget me.Im glad i was a good change in someones life.
