Why am I scared to make changes in my life?
Neuroscience research teaches us that uncertainty registers in our brain much like an error does. It needs to be corrected before we can feel comfortable again, so we’d rather not have that hanging out there if we can avoid it. We also fear change because we fear that we might lose what’s associated with that change.
Why may people react differently to change?
Our attitude towards change is obviously different if we perceive a change as positive or as negative, our choice or forced upon on us, well-timed or badly-timed, temporary or permanent. The impact of change on our personal life or our work is another factor in how we may deal with change.
Why am I so bad at dealing with change?
Adjusting to big changes can be hard. For some people, it can feel damn near impossible. But if these feelings don’t go away or get worse over time, it could be a sign of an adjustment disorder, a sneaky stress-related condition that tends to strike after a major life event or big change.
