I Hate Change

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 746 People

    So it's been over a week

    since I found out my boyfriend cheated on me and even though we've talked about it and he promised he'd change and make it up to me, everything has changed. I know it's only been a little over a week and I'm not going to forgive and forget in such a small amount of time but I...

    Over the past year everything has been changing

    and whenever something changes it gets crappier. I am so fed up with it and I just want things to be like they used to. Every day I think about how life used to be and everyday it makes me feel like **** knowing that it's never going to happen.

    Yes, I do hate change.  I like sameness, progress scares me.  I wish that things all stayed the same.  Sometimes, I find it hard to let go of something because I feel deeply and become attached to things.  I hate change because it makes you think of what you...

    I feel like everyone around me is moving.

    I don't understand why in life things need to change. Change can be a good thing but Why can't it all just be the same. And everyone just stop, Live in the moment and have fun. It seems everything is changing and nothing will ever stay the same. It hurts to have to live a life...

    I Miss How Things Used to Be

    For the most part, I like the direction that my life is going in, but I miss things once they are gone. I wish I was back in my childhood where I had no responsibilities, and life was easy. I miss the friends I used to have and the places I used to live. I'm still in high school...

    College=Not Happy

    I hate that I have to go back to college next week.  I was just getting used to seeing all my friends all the time at home, and now I'm going to miss them again.  I feel like this is just like last year, when it was my first year and I had to say good-bye to all my...

    I cannot deal with change.

    If the slightest thing alters, I start crying. My mother knows this and she got a haircut today. I'm crying. I know it sounds silly. Even I think it's silly, but every time I think about it I'm crying again.

    life. Friends that I thought would always be there for me are nowhere to be seen. I find myself colder, caring less about people and whether or not they're in my life. I'm worried this change is is gonna lead me down a path of loneliness, but then again I'm afraid of going back...

    .. But coming off of a long time of being depressed, I decided I had to change my entire life or I would never have any hope... All I did was make things worse. Now I'm lonier than before as I lost the friends I did have. I have no one left. It makes depression harder to battle...

    As time goes on, things will change. Doesn't matter if you like it or not, it's the way life is. Change. Many like change. But some people like me can't stop living in the past. We want things to stay forever, we don't want those special moments to end. But all good things come...

    Garage Sales...

    This may seem like a silly thing to get worked up about, but I had a garage sale today, and now I am a little bit depressed. For me, this is like sifting through memories, deciding which are worth revisiting, and which are not. My husband and I are not going to have any more...

    moving house, parting with friends, graduations, deaths, new jobs, leaving old ones, even when a character in my favourite TV show leaves, I feel a deep sadness. I suppose its because I's not a very happy person, not much has really happened to give me a reason to be happy, so...

    Everybody hates change.

    It's human nature to go against change and just stick with what your normal is. But moving your life somewhere else teaches you sooo many lessons and experiences. that's why I force myself into situations that might not be in my "safe zone". However change could also change a...

    So I was in school, and this girl is sitting in

    my spot, so I have to sit in her spot, and I have never felt more anxious ever in my life. Call me a drama queen or whatever, but I just can't cope with change and I absolutely hate it. The atmosphere is not the same, and air conditioner is not exactly behind me and I hate it.
