There’s no rule book for life and the changes that come with it. We cannot control everything as much as we try to. We can prepare for change, but we cannot always predict what that change may lead to. That’s a terrifying place for some.
So, how do we deal with change?
Sometimes, resisting change does more damage than choosing to embrace it.
(Side note: It can be really shit having to tell yourself that change is part of the process. Meh, could we maybe skip this part, please?)
Learn to face it
Acknowledging change and actually facing change are two different things. Stop being so comfortable.
It’s not always a good thing, your parents lied. Comfort is that place where you feel secure. Your subconscious tells you that it may not be the utmost best life has in store for you, but it’s okay because you feel warm and cozy here.
Getting out of that comfort zone is possibly the best decision you can make for yourself. You’ll have the opportunity to grow. Would you rather stay in a mediocre place due to comfort or strive for your true potential whilst dealing with some not-so-nice (but temporary) change?
own the fear
After deciding to face things, we come across a nauseating feeling, fear. Particularly fear of the unknown.
“Is this change really going to benefit me? Will I honestly discover different parts of who I am through this?”
The answer will always be yes.
Even if this change isn’t taking you to the exact destination you had planned, you will learn something from it regardless. Rather learn something new through embracing change than sitting still with wonder.
“Everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear.” – Jack Canfield.
That guy is a wise man.
Focus on the bigger picture
At times, we can be foolishly fixated on the now. The world is moving at such a fast pace, we feel like we just cannot keep up. It can suffocate you, but don’t allow it to. All these transformations contribute to something much larger than us. You have so much to discover, do not let resistance to change hold you back. Keep going.
