"People don't resist change. They resist being changed." Peter Senge.
Maybe this quote sums things up for me. I feel undue and unnecessary pressure to change and go with the flow and be loyal (to what I am not sure) and to not make waves and not work through my decisions etc. and so on. Let me make up my own mind about how I feel and I might just surprise you and actually find my way all alone and undirected.
It has also dawned on me that some of the very people who are placing this pressure are as frightened by the change as are those of us they would like to join them, be like them, do as they do. It is a scary thought to leap off a cliff into the unknown but less scary if one is falling with dozens of others and some even holding hands.
I am just one of the cautious ones who likes to look before I leap and I am a wee bit picky about with whom I hold hands...lol.'
P.S. Thanks to all who have been posting. I've been inspired by comments and the words have made a difference...thanks.
