I have always feared change, I get anxious when it is presented to me, worried when I think I will be challenged with change and overwhelmed when I have to face it.
I can remember the very first major change I experienced and the onset of confusing emotions it brought with it.
Moving out of our tiny two-bedroom flat with my 6 siblings into a large comfortable beautiful home left me distraught and very sad.
What if we grew apart? everything around me was new and strange, I missed the comfort of the old and familiar.
I realised that change instilled fear rather than hope and excitement and something needed to change.
I have consciously tried looking at change differently.
– Change is an opportunity to start something new.
-The unknown has no definitive of being fully good or fully bad.
– Staying in the present is so important to make the most of the now.
-Change IS inevitable.
– Change is growth
– Change can sometimes be scary and that is ok
Maybe I was more afraid of being able to cope with changes and letting self-doubt overwhelm me rather than the change itself.
What I can say looking back at all the opportunities, growth and joy changes have brought in my life is that I am more afraid of not embracing all that life has to offer by fighting it.
Because change can be beautiful and can highlight your strengths, adaptability and resilience like nothing else.
I am openly sharing my vulnerable fears because here at Nu(pw)R we believe in the (pw)R of talk, and encourage every woman to be her authentic, genuine self.
