The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines change as, “to make or become different”.
The more time you put in experiencing life, I think the more you come to understand one thing: Change truly is inevitable. It is a constant and consistent part of life experience. Your life can change in a split second and suddenly all you knew foundationally crumbles around you.
Many times, change is thrust upon you and there are times when you actively choose life changes. Any sort of change, chosen or not, can be challenging. Facing change can be a scary prospect as you enter uncharted and unknown territory. Change can trigger strong feelings of vulnerability and lack of safety. Fear can then rear its ugly head, wreaking havoc as stress and anxiety build. Paralysis and rigidity may then begin to settle into your life. When faced with change you may feel frozen, apathetic, or terrified. Or you may feel driven to become controlling and rigid, in an attempt to regain a sense of safety and security.
