So I’m thinking on embarking on a significant change in my life within the coming years and it isn’t easy for me. I always say “When I get into a rut I like to stay there” and while it’s usually said in jest there is a certain level of truth to it.
I prefer stability to change. I believe a lot of that come from a lower middle class upbringing. If you have something you don’t give it up. That whole “a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush” mentality. So any time I think of making a big change it gets very scary for me.
I’m sure I’m not alone in this.
So I keep talking myself back out onto the ledge because I know it’s the right thing to do. If I spend enough time out there perhaps I’ll get comfortable being there.
