Greek Philosopher Heraclitus once said “Everything changes and nothing stands still.” Change is inevitable part of life, you may never be completely comfortable with it, but you can learn to embrace it.
Why Change is a Good Thing
Change may seem scary, but it is the only way to improve. If you were to never change anything, you would stay in the exact same position you are in right now. Embracing change and moving forward will allow you to reach your goals, and grow as a person.
If you are nervous about changing, remember, change is inevitable. No matter how hard you try to avoid it, it’s going to happen. All you can do is decide how you will react to it. Are you going to be happier worrying about change, or embracing it?
Tips to Stop Fearing Change
- Prepare in Advance: Help yourself feel more confident and less apprehensive about changes by preparing for them. While there will always be changes you are not ready for, you can always prepare for the ones you know are coming.
- Start Small: If you are nervous or apprehensive about change, start small. You don’t have to dive in and change everything. Practice change by pushing your boundaries in small ways. This will help you become comfortable with change.
- Talk it Out: Sharing how you feel about changes can be helpful. Learn on your support system and let them know how you’re feeling. They may not be able to change your situation, but their support will make you feel more confident about what the changes will bring.
- Be Positive: Change usually isn’t as bad as you think. Instead of dreading change, think of the positives it could bring. If you are going through a big life change, don’t focus on the challenges you will endure. Try to focus on the ways you will overcome those challenges and the benefits this change is bringing.
- Life Experience: Treat change as a life experience. Every time change occurs you have the opportunity to learn and grow. Look at change as a way for your horizons to broaden and for you to discover new things about yourself and the world.
