Change is perhaps one of the things that people fear the most. It stops people in their tracks and prevents them from taking action. People tend to stay in engative relationships rather than adopt a path of action to free themselves from their shackles? Do not despair. You are not alone. Psychology Today points to the fact that we are "hardwired to resist uncertainty". Why?
As terrible as it sounds, our brain prefers a predictable negative outcome over an uncertain one. On the other hand, our mind is flexible and adaptive — it can be trained to thrive in change. Good news! Are you willing to change? To re-wire your brain to embrace positive outcomes and not only the feces in life?
Remember - one bad episode does not define your life's movie!
