But Is It Really?

This is a pretty common concept in our society. "Something is changing? That's horrible! There's no way this new thing could be as good as the original! What in the world are they thinking?!?"

Then again, it can be a good thing sometimes. Imagine if video games never changed. We'd still all be playing Pong on our Atari 2600. Or clothing. Anyone feel like hitting the town in some nice and comfy Puritan outfits? Talk about hitting it off with the ladies!

What makes change scary and confusing is that it forces out of our comfort zone. We can't hide from the world behind that old familiar thing and know that we're safe because suddenly we don't recognize it anymore.

The real key is to embrace that change and try it. You might be right; it could be the worst thing in the world but you will never know if you don't let down your guard just a little and give it a try. After all, it could be the next best thing since sliced bread.
