Change will happen

I have spent much of my life fearing change.  For things am unprepared for, things am not used too, feed my anxiety. Meeting new people, trying something new make my heart race and fear fill my head. My boss asking me to do something i have never done before is foreboding to me. It can be controlling, it often plays a part in many of my decisions.

Giving into my fears and anxiety does not make me happy. There was a time i would not leave my house, despite the lack of change, of new and fearful things, i was not happy. I always thought of solitude as a friend, but it is not. Solitude can bring me peace for a time, but just the same drown me in it. Change will happen, every face you meet, ever tick of the clock brings more and more of it. Do not fight change, grow with it. Allow yourself to grow little by little, inch by inch. You will find that you have grown into something greater and rarer then you ever felt possible.

  1. Yes, change for the good will happen. It doesn’t help to feel sorry for oneself. I’ve been there too. The way I cope with any of the maor traumas in my life and in the lives of my relatives is:
    I can either learn to cope with adversity, OR
    I can slip into a depression, thus upsetting my whole family and not doing myself any good at all.

    Hang in there. Take one day at a time. Find something beautiful very day. Find something that interests you and stay with it.

    Sincerely,
    Jill

    1. Nice summation of one’s fear of change and good to know others out there share the same fear! I am always told the only thing constant in this world is change and rather than making me feel better about it, that little phrase scares me to death!

      I am still convinced we can change by not changing. Know what I’m sayin’???
