    Not Change So Much...

    Change requires making a decision and making a decision requires taking a chance and doing something. The change that I can affect I don't and the change that just happens leaves me stressed and insecure.

    Really Afraid Of Change

    Change is an extremely difficult thing

    for me to accept and face. Empathy is a very strong trait within my personality, I am the type of person that always gets fond of people and places, therefore when I need to say goodbye to someone or someplace, it is extremely difficult and I usually have a very hard time...

    I Am Afraid...

    Yes And No

    I've always been afraid of change - I like the routine my seemingly uncomplicated life brings me -, but I also need it.  And that is the big paradox in my life: fear versus longing.  So when will I be able to let go of that fear and make the changes that could finally...

    The only constant in ones life is

    that everything is ever-changing. Sometimes I find myself paralyzed by the thought of change. Although I'm outgoing and spontaneous (at times) I am also a creature of habit. The fear of making the wrong decision, and the impact it will have on my future often deters me from...

    I like status quo. You already know what is in store for you. Sometimes though, it's not good enough and changes must be effected. Most of the time, changes are done by force.I feel a lot of changes right now. Changes in the house, changes in the family, changes in the tasks...

    As 'safe' doesn't apply to me anymore, I 'settle' in rituals, patterns false security etc. Change, it is not familiar to me, so I see it as being a burden, taking me to a place where I am not prepared. I can't not be prepared, I need to plan for anything, and when it gets to a...

    Why Must It Change?

    I can deal with little changes, except when there's a big change involved. If something big changes, I notice every little change that happens in my life. At some point it'll become to much and I break down and cry, though this doesn't happen often. I just can't see why such big...

    I Need A Push

    This is the one thing about me which truly bothers me the most. I am so scared of change and it completely rules my life. I am not driven to have a career (or even get a job) or go any study or just about do anything! This is turning in such a big issue for me it's insane. When...
