Change is Constant

Every time I open my Facebook account, I always come across pictures and posts of people younger than me. And to be quite honest, majority of them do things that are stupid in my opinion. You’ll be amazed to know that these set of people don’t think or know what they’re posting is stupid, but there’s every possibility that in five years to come, they’ll come to realize what they had done and probably laugh at themselves.


Many of us have seen our old posts from Memories on Facebook and ask ourselves, did I really post this? And we have seen other memories that made us proud of ourselves. It’s called change. A seemingly bad person today can become a good person tomorrow.


What I find highly disturbing is the elderly ones judging these younger ones about how they conduct themselves on Facebook. The way they dress is mostly judged. Let me cite an example for more clarity. Say a young lady of about 19 or 20 years, who comes from a Muslim home decides not to wear a headscarf or hijab, but instead chose to wear a wig instead. Some family members or close friends have problem with this, but they don’t realize that there’s time for everything. People change.


The interesting thing about these people judging others is that they have done worse when they were younger, or before they become religious. I know a young lady who reveals her cleavage when she was in her late teens and early twenty, but now she’s older and have left that life behind. But she won’t stop judging younger ones doing same. To me, this is hypocritical.


Seems like I’m beginning to blab. But what am I saying? Change is the only constant thing in life, and it’s not okay to judge others because you have gotten better. You are better today doesn’t mean others won’t be better tomorrow. There’s always time and room for growth.
