Allowing yourself to grow:
I hate change! I hate when things have to be different. It can be hard to consider yourself a strong person, but sometimes you don't have a choice. You know what I mean? Being in College change comes every semester, you have new classmates, new schedule, new friends, sometimes a new apartment, etc. Change comes throughout all of life, in the workforce, in high school, and even just in the home. So why do we not like it?
Why change is scary:
Change is scary because we are human. Like in Christina Perri's song "Human" we can only take so much. We want to be able to handle more in life, but we're not God... thank goodness. We fear change because of the unknown, we are a people who want to know that everything is going to be okay. Change, however, has no absolute.
How to handle it:
So how should we look at it when we are people who don't like change? Think back to past situations, remember how you felt scared then? Now look to where you are now, do you see how you have grown since then? We fear the unknown, but the unknown is how we live, it is everywhere, it is part of who we are. Everyday is unknown, and if we look at change from that perspective, we can face it with more courage.
Change brings growth. Allow the change to happen, so that you allow yourself to grow.
