Some People prefer to spend their lives doing the same things and avoiding change. Others, however, think that change is always a good thing. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.

Nowadays, the peace of development is faster than expectations. Advanced technology and scientific breakthroughs drive our life far away from the past. But it is an inevitable fact of life that everyone has to understand and follow.

The major reason of people prefers doing the same thing is sense of security. Some of them may think that keeping the old life style ensures living steadily. Their thought was once workable. But in modern peoples' eyes, it is unrealistic and too idealistic. It is true that things would not be changed unless one is willing to do so. However, in order to live in this world, the traditional life styles have to be changed. For example, farmers leave their fields and go to towns as a factory worker because they know farming is no longer supporting life. Under this adverse circumstance, they have no choice but to leave.

In contrast, rising living standard is the benefit to one who suggests change. This is no doubt that the interest and scientific knowledge make our life easier. Distance between people is shortened while the ill have better medical care. If no one would like to take a step, we still use letter as a communication tool and many people are died because of incurable diseases. Notwithstanding changes are uncertain, it just aims at improvement of life. Such as farmers use irrigation system instead of in- person one. And they continue their simple living style. It is obvious that change and live are not contradicting, even mutually beneficial to them.

In my opinion, change leads to a more satisfactory and comfortable life which is not harmful. However, imposing changes on anyone will never have happy result.

Oh... I see... at the beginning, you meant to type "pace."

Nowadays, the pace of development is faster than anyone expected it to be.

The major reason of people prefers doing the same thing is that they want a sense of security. ---I agree!!

In contrast, rising living standard is the benefit to one who suggests change. ---this is not too bad, but we can make it better... like this:

In contrast, other people desire change because they are trying to raise their living standards. ---Is this what you mean?

However, imposing changes on anyone will never have a happy result.
