Do you remember these words from Fleetwood Mac’s song “Landslide”?
“Well, I’ve been ‘fraid of changin’
‘Cause I’ve built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Children get older
And I’m gettin’ older, too”
– Fleetwood Mac (Landslide)
Are you also afraid of changes? Are you terrified? Are you like me and the other 7.7 billion homo sapiens out there?
Seems like the most constant thing in our life are changes. But why it is sooo terrifying? You know it’s for the best, but we are like always afraid of the unknown. Are we built this way? Or it is just me?
As what I’ve mentioned in my previous post, that right now I’m going through some drastic changes . I’ve done this before, that’s why I feel so odd that I am “scared” this time. I know I will get used to it whether I like it or not.
All of us have been through huge changes in our lives. All of us have left our comfort zones more than once or twice. All of us took a leap of faith at some point in our lives. All of us experienced loss and grief. We know we can let go. We know we can say goodbye. We know we are brave.
….BUT we still have this idea that “we built our life around them”, and probably that what make changes so painful – the people, the memories, the fun, the fights, the laughter, and the loss time. 🙂
