Resistance to change is brought about by our inability to accept that the life we had, isn’t the life we have now. Any circumstances will always be part of the universal resistance, which means the more we resist, the more we draw those circumstances to us.
Some of us worry that because we have to deal with change, we will lose control, but it stands to reason that if we have control before the time we have to change, we’ll have control through change and beyond it.
For some, change may interfere with their independence, whilst for others change may mean the total opposite, when through new circumstances, they become free of the things that held them back.
We’re only human and creatures of habit. We like to follow the same routines and aren’t always good around change. Change isn’t a habit, because it’s 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 recreate us; it allows us to experience new opportunities, without which we will simply stagnate.
What are the problems with resisting change?
Well the biggest problem is, staying stuck in the past; not being mature enough to deal with change; never learning how to deal with new routines and with new people. We’re happy with what we know, we’re comfortable in our comfort zones.
The irony is that our circumstances will always change, whether we’re ready or not. What we need to do, is to introduce and use strategies to help us adapt to keep up with the possibility of change.
