Change Makes You Angry

Let’s just get it out there – change is infuriating.

Remember those questions – why me? Why now?

I’ve looked at the etymology of the word change – it’s earliest meaning refers to the process of becoming different.

While I like growing and becoming different, it’s not easy. Metamorphosis is never easy.

Have you ever watched a snake shed it’s skin? Seen a caterpillar become a butterfly? Change is difficult. It requires work.

And who wants to work when they didn’t ask to make the change in the first place?

I think it’s important to be aware of how our emotions come into play during times of life metamorphosis, because anger can lead us down a dark path that’s difficult to escape from.

Anger is real. Anger is powerful. And anger is a natural byproduct of change.

Handle with care.
