“The only thing that is constant is change.” -Heraclitus 

 

Our world is constantly changing.  This has been a known fact for thousands of years and it has been taught that to survive in a changing world, one must adapt to the new standard.  While some of this rings true, it is not always the case. 

 

With LGBTQ+ rights rising more strongly in the past decade, the Black Lives Matter movement once more taking the front stage, and a controversial president at the head of America, things couldn’t be more controversial.  In order to “stay with the times” numerous people have disregarded their personal beliefs and morals in order to fit into a societal stigma in our changing world.   

 

While those were just a few examples, they fit onto a larger scale.  Most times it is personal, community-based bias that convinces groups of people to disregard their personal morals to be on top of the change.  It is important to remember one’s beliefs and morals so that despite the change, one can still remain firm in what they know is right. There are always opportunities to learn, and perhaps one’s beliefs were not what was thought, but proper education and research are needed before following what the world dictates as correct.
