Witnessing the tension and anxiety that starting a new system created at work made me perplexed. Everyone seemed so stressed which made me reflect on some previous personal experience where I was so scared of facing changes that I stayed in an unpleasant situation.
I must say, as a human being, we are creatures of habits and change does make us feel uncomfortable. We fear the unknown as we don’t know what to expect and how to react to any new situation.
We have not realized that change is a normal process in life. Constantly, we are moving through different phases in our lives. Each day brings new challenges, new pieces of knowledge, new experiences which make us different from the person we were before. Most likely this growth occurs because we have changed, which means change is inevitable.
Why are we so uncomfortable? Why are we so reticent and apprehensive towards change? We hold on to the old and we don’t have space for anything new. Why don’t we think positive and hope the change will make things better for us?
As things evolve, we must be flexible and adapt to the environment. If we all were to stay the same, life would be so boring. We must embrace the excitement that change is bringing to us and live fully. We must stop the internal fight and be open for any possible great opportunities. We must be ready to start new beginnings that only change can bring us.
