"Nothing is certain but death and taxes."
We can also include 'change' in this old quote. Change is as constant and certain. It's also as feared.
It's the need for control – the need for certainty.
The unknown that change presents gives us anxiety. We may as well stick with what we know, even if what we know is no good for us.
But sticking to a situation we don't like doesn't mean change isn't taking place. It just means it's moving slower. Change is going to happen either way.
If change is inescapable, is it worthwhile speeding that certain change up to suit your situation right now?
