You always know that (aside taxes and death) one constant in life is change. For some people, change is the best thing in the world – change keeps the world interesting, stops the mundane becoming regular, prevents boredom settling in. For others, change is a terrifying, inconsistent unknown. It’s the new job, new social circle, new routines and new faces. It’s unknown and undecided.
I fall into the second bracket – I cannot embrace change.
I almost feel as though there should be an anonymous support group for those of us that don’t actively seek change. We are the ones who don’t spend their gap year travelling, the ones who work in the same job for years.
For me, change is a great unknown, something I cannot prepare for or plan for. It’s the scary thing that precedes something new. And the something new is the hardest thing of them all.
But hey, change happens and as much as I hate it, I have to suffer with it. I might not enjoy it much but it will happen with or without my consent.
And so as change occurs I will try and embrace it…
