“Change is never painful, only the resistance to change is painful.”
― Demi Lovato
When we enter our twenties, the world around us changes, we change, our friends change, everything that we could possibly never imagine that would change also changes. While everyone believes that teenagers give a tough time to parents, the twenties is a tough time to the individual themselves.
We are pushed from spoon feeding to living alone, pampered environment to a hostile place. While change is essential, not everyone can cope up with it in the right spirit. The resistance to change is very powerful, you are so cosy in your comfort zone that you don’t see change as a good thing. You see it as a couch potato being told to exercise for 2 hours a day. Instead of choosing to see the new change of activity as a good thing, you see it as a burden and try to resist the change.
But to improve, to go ahead, to let go and to be a better you, you need to get used to changes, come out of the space that has always shielded you. The twenties is a period of trying, exploring and living life to the fullest. If you don’t give change a chance, how can you see its magic?
Embrace changes as it comes, for change is the only constant, no?
**All through April I will be posting the A-Z of life of a girl of twenty-something as a part of the A-to-ZChallenge. Do join me in this journey of introspection and lesson.**
It’s good to see someone in the twenties say change is good. One will realise albeit many times late that change is good and is constant. After most of the good things need a lot of time to be invested coupled with time, that’s why change is resisted. Good one from you, love the article.
Coming from someone whos in twenties, this is good. You should be prepared to accept things as they come and make the best of what life offers to you while constantly trying to get the best of things. It is because the benefits are slow to come and it takes a lot of effort and perseverance that we appear to resist change and once we see the good things we are quick to adapt. But the truth is resistance to change seems easier.Good one from you.
Change is hard at first, messy in the middle but gorgeous at the end. Change is inevitable to everyone.
I was always the one who welcomed changes with a smile. I hate monotonous Life. Though it shakes us but its always good. Its so exciting to see what’s next.
How true. Change is the only constant .
Very well expressed. Change is inevitable. The sooner we realize this, the smoother our lives are going to be.
Very true. Change is the only constant. The more we can embrace change and flow with it, the easier it is to adapt 🙂
Ramya, your home page is so attractive. My twenties went a drastic change as I got married early. But time helps you to resist the change.
True, resistance adds to stress. Getting out of our comfort zone is painful but there’s where lies our growth. Go with the flow is a good approach to face life. Nice to drop by your blog Ramya.
Can relate very well to the inertia you spoke off buddy but growth lies in coming out of this comfort zone and face life head on
Rightly said. Change is a part of life and we need to accept the different changes that happen in our lives as we proceed.
Just yesterday, I finished this topic in my class about how everyone resists change and today I am reading it here 🙂
There quite a wisdom you have shared here 🙂
