Why many people perceive change as something bad? Why they are so scared of change and upturns?
The reason is because it is wired in our brain to seek pleasure and to avoid pain. An external change asks for changes to be made internally. And these changes beyond a point cause discomfort which our brain absolutely wants to avoid.
Thus, you need to know where your panic point is. You can know this when your mind urges you to:
• Seek out of a commitment- indefinitely
• Overthink the negatives
• avoid the change completely
• isolate yourself and get angry over the futility of resisting change
