Many people claim to be extremely liberal.
The are open to new ideas.
They are open for change.
This always makes me a little skeptical.
Even if I neglect all the political views.
I remember the day a new girl stepped into the primary school I was in.
Her family moved from 20 km to the town I lived in due her father’s job.
This girl quickly stole everyone’s heart with her constant crying.
She was highly emotional by this change.
Teachers and classmates were supportive and she obviously got the preferential treatment.
I seemed to be the only not blindsided by her little trick.
By the age of 5 I had already lived in 4 countries and 7 cities.
I didn’t even know if which language to communicate in.
NOBODY ever mentioned that.
I must admit, I am a funny little human.
Large changes don’t seem to affect me that much.
Moving or switching of the job will make me shrug my shoulders.
My panic attacks start when I suddenly have to change my regular route to work, when my preferable type of tomato is out of stock or when my favorite evening tea cup is still dirty.
My conservative behavior towards the small routine things is what people notice.
They tell me I need to loosen up a bit.
But then they’d tell me they still live in they area they were born in.
Each year they go to the same vacation spot.
So I will remain unimpressed.
How do you large handle change?
Do you often change your every day routines?
