Is It Good For Us?

March 3, 2010 at 09:12 (Uncategorized)

The word change can make people feel uncomfortable, scared, worried or for some, excited.  As human beings are we able to adapt to change?  Change meaning, to alter, transform, adjust or even revolutionise.  Are we able to do this and still remain settled?  Changing the way that something is done in our daily life or something that we have known or grown to – I wonder how we can adjust to this. 

I think as humans we do not find change to be the easiest task to deal with.  It throws us off course, puts us into the deep end, and makes us feel vulnerable and confused and even frightened at times.  However, what I’d like to know is if change is good for us?

Even though I would be scared of change, unsettling the balance and trying something new, I think that in the long run it can be good for us and sometimes we can even benefit from it.  Change can bring out new opportunities that we never would have imagined, allowing us to meet new people or to do things that we never thought we’d do.  Altering, adjusting or even making a transformation in one’s life sometimes gives us that boost of confidence which we never thought we could acquire.    

Think about it – you decide to get a new haircut, perhaps something quite different.  It’s scary at first, you don’t know what to expect, you don’t know what others will think, it’s strange to you and you might even regret it.  Once it’s done and you realise how good it looks it makes you feel good and want to experience more of change.  Yes, it is a possibility that things could go wrong- your hair could not look that good- but it is the fact that you took that step forward to even attempt change that has made an impact and made you grow as a person.

Change IS scary, doubtful and unbalanced but once you have done it, it can open up a whole new future of experiences.  It even allows you to feel proud of yourself with a sense of accomplishment.  Sometimes we need to get out of our comfort zones, do something different and look towards the future.  You never know what might come of it.

    Very interesting take Steph – and haven not really thought of change this way before. Thanks for putting it into perspective for me.

    Change = growth and development, without it we cannot evolve. Yes, very scary- nothing to guide us, no experience, nobody to hold our hands.

    Change keeps us young! Its great for us, constantly being challenged in the background while having to keep up our everyday lives. Change helps us adapt and grow and what a wonderful gift that is.

    I think that change is stimulating and helps us develope in ways we were never really aware of. Great topic Steph, I really enjoyed your outlook on change.
