I am a creature of habit…even if what I’m doing is no longer a great fit. I would rather stay in the same place than have to deal with the unknowns that change brings. It makes me anxious….really anxious. Like a knot in the back of your throat, am I making the right decision, I wish someone would tell me what to do type of anxious.
I need a change. I want a change. It just makes me nervous. I looked to the Internet for quotes of inspiration to help me through this awful feeling. Here’s what I’ve got:
I always find reasons as to why now is not the time. I think I’ve found reasons for the past year. I’ve got to stop this vicious cycle.
I’ve got it great where I am right now. Flexibility, Autonomy, A Family. I just need something more. I feel like I’m not being challenged. I want a challenge. …Hopefully you’ll remind me of this in the future!
I am learning to have faith that everything will work out . If not, I know that there are other opportunities. Change just makes me so anxious and afraid.
I know everything will happen exactly as it should, but it’s different now. Without a family, I probably wouldn’t worry as much, but I have to. There are people who rely on me. People that need me. People that I don’t want to let down.
I want something better, but I’m so afraid to go after it. The grass isn’t greener on the other side, but is it better than this?
