    How would life be without the changes that occur every minute?

      Well, it would get awful itchy if my underwear wasn't changed now and then.  So I guess I would say that without change life would suck. smile

      I love change.

      However, most people that I come across say they do, but, really resist it.  That's a shame.

    Boring. neutral

    Your mind, and in fact all your senses need constantly changing input.  They all rely on the 'differences' from moment to moment..not the seemingly constant, but more consciously obvious presence of things.

    Try placing your hand on a very rough surface.  Keep your hand absolutely still.  After a short while, you won't be able to tell that it's rough, until you move your fingers a little bit.  Same goes with all your senses..use them wisely. wink

      Well said  Timorous!   Life without change is boring indeed, absolutely , with nothing to look forward to.
      Still when change comes we do resist it, crib about it, even oppose it ...
      Shouldn't we look at change as opportunities to better ourselves.

        Absolutely.  People who resist change are just way too comfortable with the same old thing.  It's as though they feel more grounded if they know what to expect.  Unfortunately, this is very limiting, and eventually they just get bored or depressed.

        Still, having certain constants in your life is a relatively good thing.  We'd drive ourselves nuts if absolutely everything was in constant flux..that's just way too stressful.  It's the smaller, more peripheral things that need to change constantly.

          You've  made a great point again, not all change is welcome, we need some constants in life.  I couldn't think of having a different husband or kids  lol
          That is a constant I need in life!!
          Stability is good, as is change!!
          The balance in life!!  smile

      I am in complete and perfect agreement with you on this smile  ,  so bleak and uninteresting, no surprises around the corner  sad

        The fact that people go out of their way to try and make their life not change just goes to show how ignorant they choose to be.

          Some people are afraid of change, of the unknown what do you make of it?

    change can be stress, but time standing still is not going to happen

    1. Cagsil profile image60
      Cagsilposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Stress is a figment of the imagination of oneself and a lack of faith in oneself.

        Isn't it so real for those who face it?  we see people falling apart under stress all the time.

        1. Cagsil profile image60
          Cagsilposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          Due to a lack of faith in one's own ability and view to see choices.

    Changes are one of the best things we look forward to in every day of our lives.  It is the changes that bring spice to every experience we have.  Changes make one's life more meaningful.

      Yes but,  not all of us adapt well to changes, we take kindly , only to those changes that we like, not those that make us move from our comfort zones.

        Change negates comfort zone, unless you are comfortable with change. lol

          Consider stuff like losing a job, or  losing your house... It takes a positive person to bounce back from stuff like that... those who are not so positive may just bend and break along the way....

            When one door closes another always opens. It's the view of the person that has to change, so they can see what door opened. wink

    we can't change change - all we can do is choose how we react to it - embracing change is usually good, having to have things constantly moving and shaking is probably too much change - its super nice to have same old same old some of the time just so we can feel like we know what to expect.   Too much change is stressful - and stress, whether it comes from inside or out can make one a very unhappy camper.  People who try to deny that change is going on or that they have stresses on them, are just limiting themselves and probably developing ulcers.  Its good to see things as close to the way they are as possible, so you can react, or choose not to react, in a realistic, positive way.

    Life without changes meaning we are not doing anything about our life and that is not possible! Everyday we are evolving! Even in death means changes.

      Very true, changes occur whether you like it or not!! Adapting to changes is what we are talking about, constant changes causes stress so there needs to be a balance maintained in life.... your thoughts in that area.
