Change is something we all shy away from because it seems daunting, even scary, but change is necessary.
Change is having the ability to move from one situation to another. It gives us a different perspective. When it comes to physical change, we know it’s going to happen so we’re happy to accept it, but we seem to find psychological change difficult.
For some people change is usually brought about by a desire to want to change, but it’s something that needs to be recognised, if it is to happen. Unfortunately, when we don’t think about change or look to change, it’s easy to stay stuck, which can’t broaden our horizons, or our spiritual growth.
How many of us will hold a job without thinking about finding something else, exploring new horizons, potentially earning more money, taking on more responsibility? Initially people don’t want to change, because they’re scared to delve into unknown territory.
A familiar situation is always more comforting. It’s assumed that when we gamble with change we take risks, and risks are something that some people aren’t always comfortable with. That part to some degree is inevitable and therefore not so easy to accept.
Without change we are less likely to have a go at new things. We may more than likely shop at the same grocery store, eat the same foods and paint our houses the same colour. We will stop ourselves from learning and experiencing new things, but change is important. It helps us grow.
When we bring about change, we psychologically clear the closet and wipe the slate clean. We also begin to see that we can live a new life, take a new approach and see for ourselves that really change isn’t as scary as we once thought.
