Change.. some people freak out when they even heard the word. I was like that for many years. Change scared me so much until I realized the importance of it.
We have such a shitty attitude of “I am who I am”, “I was born this way”, crap like that. But why? Why do we fear change so much? I want to share my story.
I was 16 when I found my job, I first worked as a receptionist at a hair salon and later was promoted to Management. I stayed there for five years, I didn’t learn much after the first year, it all just became repetitive to me. Was I happy? No. I look back now and think what the eff was wrong with me? I mean I was young but was I that dumb to see how unhappy I was?
To show you my life for five years: I worked for someone who favored me. I mean, that seemed okay until I noticed it was causing problems with the people around me. He let me go on vacation whenever I wanted, I got the time off I wanted, he was nice to me. Where as with everyone else he literally bullied them.
I spent five years with the same shitty boyfriend, doing the same shitty work, every single day. Oh! I would go out every weekend too. My life was literally not changing. It was the same crap over and over again.
It was one day that I came to my senses, I called a friend and explained how sick and tired I was of my life. I knew it was time to make some serious changes. I said I was ready to learn new things, meet new people and feel uncomfortable. The next day, I went out and changed my life. I got a new job, I met new friends, I eventually found a new boyfriend and everything took a quick turn.
We are never stuck somewhere! It’s a mental block. We shouldn’t fear change because change is what makes us grow! How are we supposed to learn anything new in life or grow in any way personally if our life is just the same bullshit day in and day out?
Just a thought,
