This is sometimes, the reason why we are scared to step up and take a notch higher. Be in your career, love life, business or personal issues.
It’s so comfortable to be happy and be contented with what we have and I actually acknowledge, that is what we always seek: Contentment and Peace of Mind.
However, sometimes, because of this fear, it can make us stagnant somehow and when a storm comes in our lives, we tend to be easily shaken by it because we have lived in our “comfort zone” much longer that we should have stayed.
Sometimes, because of too much complacency, we forgot that change is also necessary.
As a child, it’s so comfortable to be the dependent one. When we were young, we would always depend on our parents. Our food, clothing, home, education and a lot more. But, when one gets older, no matter how comfortable it is to be the dependent child, we must accept the fact, that there should be changes in the family.
You must learn to be independent and initiate to get some responsibility from your parents like paying the bills, doing the laundry, taking over the family’s business etc. etc.
Though you are perfectly happy being the child, because of inevitable changes like you growing up and them (your parents), growing old, changes must be initiated.
Change is not only for them but for you as well. You get the chance to manage your own money, start saving up and get a new experiences from those.
As I grow up, I realize that everyone must be accustomed to change because as cliché as it is, it will always remain the truth: It is the only constant thing in this world.
Change is one thing a lot of people is scared of but is needed to be accepted.
Change can also be a success in disguise. We should learn to accept it. One step at a time.
