All Changes Have Their Melancholy

Hope your week is off to a good start! I wanted to share a quote about change. I wrote about my struggle with the transition from grad school to working full-time a couple of months ago, and I finally feel like I have adjusted. I always prided myself on being open to change, and I was surprised by feeling down about finishing school and starting work, especially because I have an excellent first job. However, now I can see that it was normal for me to feel like that. The quote below by Anatole France perfectly sums up why I think some negative feelings about positive changes are still to be expected and validated.

“All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.” – Anatole France.
