K - Kaintophobia: When change becomes difficult

Kaintophobia: The Fear of Change

I fear change. Change can be as simple as a new date due for an assignement  or as drastic as a death in the family. Regardless, I hate change.

Change can be scary for many people.  It can cause stress, confusion, misunderstanding and concern...

What I have recently learnt is, change produces growth. If nothing changed, not only would life be dull,  we would not grow. 

Change is a common occurrence in my life. I have never had a long friendship with someone. This always changes.

As a teenager, I dated many boys, so my relationships were always changing.

I changed schools multiple times.

I changed religion multiple times. 

My name has changed multiple times, because I hated everyone misspelling my real one.

Change is scary, because I have always allowed it to control my life.

But this has led me to a great life.

I adore my name.  I have a best friend. I am in a committed relationship.  And the one thing that will never change is God's love for me.

Change can be good. Look for the growth.

  1. Change is not's terrifying. Good for you that, despite any misgivings, you've had and embraced a lot of it. And have the life you want.

  2. Sometimes I think the anticipation of change is almost the hardest part of it. Change can be scary to deal with but I find that in the end it is what helps us to grow and change.
