Change is something we shy away from because it seems daunting, even scary sometimes, but change is necessary. Change is having the ability to move from one situation to another. Change gives us a different perspective. Where we know physical change is going to happen we’re happy to accept it, but we seem to find psychological change difficult.
For some of us change is usually brought about by a desire for us to want to change, but it’s something that needs to be recognised if it is to happen. Sadly, when we don’t think about change or look to change, it’s easy to stagnate and that can’t broaden our horizons, or our spiritual growth.
How many of us will continue to down the same job without thinking about finding another job, potentially earning more money, taking on more responsibility, or exploring new horizons? Initially we’re afraid of change, because we’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 we’re not 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 and eat the same foods. We know what we know. But without change, we will stop learning and experiencing new things; 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 change isn’t as scary as we once thought, the other side of change.
