Another reason I believe people avoid change is that of their view of the concept of change. Many people see change as painful and regard the process in a negative light. If I change, I won’t be me anymore. So, then who am I? Will others accept this new me? The point for me is that in order to continue to grow as a person and move further down the path of life we must change, otherwise, we become stagnant, stunted, and bored.
