Sample answer

I’m sure we as people bring in positive and negative changes to our lives now and then, but let me elaborate on one that changed my life completely.

The first time I migrated to a different state, after completing my education, five years ago. Initially, I was thrilled to experience a new culture and make new friends. Very soon, I realized that I was going to be all by myself. Since I have lived an overprotective life in a shell, it was difficult to become independent for me out of the blue.

Right from cooking to cleaning, running my errands, doing laundry, driving, and forgetting that I went there to work. I was absolutely terrified to be living on my own. I had never lived such a life because I lived with my family, and chores were equally divided amongst us. However, I realized that it was for my good, and it changed me as a person as time passed by.

I became independent, confident, more aware of things going around me like grocery or fuel prices and learning how to fix the car. I am so grateful for that opportunity in my life, or else I’d still be in a cocoon.

Well change can be both good and bad. It really depends upon on the change and why we are making the change. In the end, if we are changing for the right reasons, to make our ourselves better, then changing is definitely good.

I think changes occur throughout our life. First are the physical and hormonal changes which occur when we go through puberty like developing facial hair, deepening of voice and so on. Then, it is mental maturity, which occurs as we experience and face different things. We learn how to deal with issues and face challenges.

5. Is it important for people to make changes according to their surroundings?

Yes, I think there is no problem in changing according to surroundings as long we don’t feel like we are changing our identity because of these changes. For example, when in a foreign country, it is perfectly fine to try about foreign clothes and dishes. At the same time, if a person is a vegetarian, I wouldn’t consider it fine to try non-vegetarian just a fit in
