Familiar pain is often easier to face than the uncertainty of change. We fear the unknown. Most of us start a personal growth process without any real understanding of where it‘s going to lead. We start the process when the familiar pain becomes unbearable. We feel that something has got to change. As we learn to take charge of our unproductive thoughts and actions we are sometimes left with feelings of emptiness, “What now, what am I supposed to do?” When there isn’t any supposed to, we have to create something new. As we begin to choose our own lives, pressures both internal and external come to bear. We may even start to wonder if change was such a good idea after all.
