Resistance to change is brought about by our inability to accept that the life we had, isn’t the life we have now. Us resisting, will always be part of the ‘universal resistance,’ which means the more we resist, the more those circumstances are drawn to us.
When it comes to change, some of us may worry we will lose control through the change process, but if we have control before we initiate change, we will have control through and beyond the change process.
For some, change may interfere with our independence, whilst for others change may mean the opposite, when through a new set of circumstances, they become free of the things that held them back.
We’re only human and creatures of habit, we’re bound to want to resist; we inevitably follow the same routines and aren’t always good with change. Change isn’t always a habit. It’s also not something that happens frequently enough and having to work through it can be uncomfortable.
Change is about opportunity, possibilities, personal, spiritual and physical growth. Change will always give us the opportunity to try our hand at something new. Change allows us to reinvent ourselves, as we experience new opportunities.
The biggest problem in resisting change is we end up staying stuck in the past, not being mature enough to deal with change, never learning how to deal with new routines or new people.
The irony is that circumstances will always change whether we’re ready or not. What we need to do is introduce and use strategies that will help us adapt, so that we keep up with the possibility of change.
