Changing is Hard

- POSTED ON: Jan 20, 2013

Changing is hard.

 When we’ve done something the same way for all our lives, it’s not easy to do it differently. Getting used to changes takes a long time. But if we want a different result in life we have to change what has been – up to now - our normal. When we try to exchange new habits for old habits, we can feel anger and sadness, even when those habits are no longer useful.
We need to take a realistic look at our past and present mistakes,  and come up with some compassionate solutions that will make a difference. Having an open mind means embracing the constantly changing nature of everything. What was good for us yesterday may not be right today. What is right today, may be wrong tomorrow. Change never stops. Many people fall into the trap of thinking they must find A WAY and stick to it forever. But the reality is that everything in life is constantly in a state of flux.

 We need to always be willing to learn something new and adjust our actions accordingly. This is a basic secret to success in anything. It is also one of the most difficult because being open-minded means admitting to the possibility of being wrong, and we prefer being right. Learning involves making mistakes, but mistakes can teach us things.

Hi Phyllis, Speaking only for myself, I will stick with something as long as it is working for me. I am however quick to embrace a new idea after investigating it's merits and feasibility when the 'old' ceases to work. Life truly is a matter of trial and error. That's how we learn.
