If Change Is the Only Constant…
…Then why is there so much hesitation to accept it
It is something all of us are either aware of or get repeatedly told by others. Nothing will stay on forever. Things change with time and change is the only constant are lines we hear often.
That being said, there’s a tendency to resist anything that affects the status quo. It may be deliberate or done subconsciously but the inherent human behavior is to repel something that doesn’t conform to the prevailing norm.
Perhaps it has got to do with the fact that change comes at a cost, with few willing to pay. It may be attributed to the fact that most people, in general, are risk averse.
Whatever the reason, the reluctance to accept change, despite knowing it is inevitable, is, without doubt, the most peculiar of human habits.
