I chose this topic almost as a reminder for myself because a lot of new things are happening right now. This past month, I’ve been trying to adapt to:
A change of home; I’m now in London.
A change in circumstance; I took a gap year so literally had a year of chilling and now I have copious amounts of reading.
And a change of friendship circles which obviously comes with new beginnings.
I know a few of us are in the same position and how easy it is to get anxious with the pace of change. So I felt that we should reflect and consider why change can actually be beneficial for us all.

I’m sorry. I have found that our relationship has always been fraught with misunderstanding, upset, and anger. I often found myself blaming you for perceived failures - when I felt that I had failed because I was measuring you up to the standard of others. I struggled to see that you were there in everything that I accomplished because for too long I focused on what had gone wrong. I should have kept an eye out for you. Every time I thought I failed I should have seen you, showing me that I was on my way to accomplishing my goals, with every ‘failure’ I was a step closer to achieving.
