They say “If you’re not satisfied with life, change something”.
Isn’t that much easier said than done?
Not only I have been afraid of change during my childhood, I never had much opportunity to change things either.
I couldn’t just change school or town without my parent’s consent.
And even when I was older and allowed to make such changes, I wondered if it would make much sense.
Sometimes giving up half way and change, can be a waste of time.
Change can be scary. Change can impractical. Change can be impossible sometimes.
Change can be addictive too.
I have been in this phase.
I kept on changing my hair color.
I hopped from job interview to job interview, even if I had only just started a new job.
I kept changing my mind on which country I wanted to live in.
Suddenly change wasn’t scary anymore.
Settling down was.
I know that some parts of my current situation are not my final destination.
It just annoys me not to know how many times I will move or have to start a new job until it is.
Other parts of my life, or actually just one, are settled and I wouldn’t ever consider to change it.
(There are possibly more charming pictures of both us, but beer makes us silly 😉 )
How do you feel about change?
Is it scary, impractical or addictive for you?
