We can be gripped by the fear of starting something or doing something different, we are fearful of change.
Yet why do we not fear doing nothing?
Doing nothing or not choosing has consequences too. Just because it is doing the same thing and we perceive it to be comfortable or safe does not mean that there aren’t consequences. In fact, often a whole lot more than doing something has.
We do not need to fear anything, but we only seem to fear change, doing, different and risky.
Perhaps we are frightened of living our life how we want and, therefore, we accept comfortable, safe and certain. Where perhaps if we feared routine, comfort and avoiding choice, then we might choose doing or change more often.
