When did this storm begin?

“Change is the essence of life.Be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become.”
"Change is the essence of life. Be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become." - Author Unknown

This quote hit me like a ton of bricks - this is exactly what I've been looking for. Why hold back from "the essence of life"? Ok, "essence of life" may be a bit exaggerated, but you know what I mean. If you know that you have the potential to become something better, someone happier/ more loveable/ more outgoing, etc. why not let go of what you've always been to work on becoming that  " YOU, version 2.0"? 

The biggest problem is when your loved ones are all terrified of change. Friends and family who mean well when they say "I like you just the way you are", and think that all change is bad change. Is it that they don't believe that you are capable of achieving your goals, and therefore try to stop you from even trying?

Do you love your friends and family enough to let them break out of their previoius problems?

Extreme example: Your best friend in the whole wide world is a drug addict. You love this friend to death and even though you know the addiction is killing him, that it's making him miserable and is tearing his life apart, you don't make any effort to help him break free. "I love him for who he is, I love everything else about him so his drug problem is just a small insignifcant part of his otherwise fantastic character."

Ridiculous, right? Absolutely.
