Why Do We Fear Change?

So, why is it that we fear change? It’s almost a cliché to suggest that everything must change to survive, flourish, carry on. So what is that we are so afraid of?

Actually, many of us seek out psychics when we sense a change coming on, or when we are in the midst of an event that has caused some shifts in our lives. Even when we are dissatisfied or downright unhappy with where we are in our lives, our jobs, our relationships, we are often resistant to the idea of change, let alone initiate a change ourselves. There is nothing inherently negative about change, yet we often assume exactly that.

Maybe what we’re most afraid of is that we’ll lose sight of ourselves. We don’t know which leaf is going to be the last to fall from the tree in autumn, or if the tree itself will survive the winter. While nature continually pushes us forward, we’re not given any guarantees that we’ll get to where we want to go.

But let’s stop for a moment and consider a different attitude. Why not start small? Maybe opt for the that new flavor at your favorite cafe and be pleasantly surprised. Or add a new color to your wardrobe, and change up your hairstyle.

If we really think about it, we make small, incremental changes on a daily basis, often without thinking about it. We change our minds, change our clothes, change lanes, change channels, give change, and get change. And yes, we make the “big” changes like addresses, jobs, and partners. Sometimes, in the process of both the big and the small changes, we change our lives.

We may sometimes be shocked, but we are seldom surprised when someone else changes for the worse. What about when someone changes for the better? Whoa! That’s a different story entirely. We view them with suspicion. What are they “on?” What happened outside of them to make things suddenly go their way? Who are they, anyway?

Is it possible, then, that we are really so afraid of change because (hold on to your hat) that change might make things better? Or (now I’m really pulling out all of the stops) the change we decided to make led to another and then another, and all told, things worked out pretty darned well? Are we afraid to be happy? Could it be that we fear joy and true fulfillment?
