Change is something that is inevitable in life, we can’t avoid it, and yet often we find ourselves feeling resistant to it, or experiencing some difficult emotions which change can bring up.
This resistance to change is a very natural and normal part of our makeup, it is part of of our survival instinct. Predictability and stability are more favourable conditions for staying alive, and so we become hard wired for safety and security. So change can bring up a lot of uncertainty, it can feel disruptive and difficult to embrace or accept. Change can also be difficult to accept and embrace, because it can mean a loss of something that came before.
Well, the first step in dealing with change, is awareness. You cannot change or influence something if you don’t first become aware of where you are in relation to that which you want.
