20 Photos to Remind You That the Only Constant Is Change

The fear of change each one of us faces from time to time is called Metathesiophobia. Indeed, change is always uncertain, unpredictable, and therefore, frightening. Even though sometimes people are afraid to accept the changes life throws at us, we believe that change always leads to something good.

We at Bright Side collected photos of people, things, and events that can remind you that change is inevitable, and it often makes our lives better in the end.

1. “Here’s my daughter and my wife wearing the same dress, 28 years apart. Made me smile.”

2. “This is my boyfriend’s new 4-month-old pup, Phoebe, before and after adoption. Sometimes changes bring so much happiness!”

3. “My dad and me, visiting Trafalgar Square — the time gap between the photos is around 40 years.”

4. “My collection had long since outgrown the old shelf, but the old one’s been with me since middle school. I’ll find a way to repurpose it!”

5. “This is my baby and me in our kindergarten photos. They even had us in the same spot on the bench, arranged according to height.”
