Hmmm.. I've always felt that change is my thing. I make it happen. There are definitely things I value and want to remain, but that doesn't have anything to do with the principal of change itself. I'm interested in hearing other answers. Maybe I'm missing something about myself here.
Anyone feel like they resist change? Under what circumstances do you embrace or retreat from it?
More often than not, change seems good to me. Of course I resist change. Every time someone takes my money, I resist. When it's too cold, I resist. However, necessity compels me even if I don't like a shift in my environment, and I work for a change I enjoy. Always. Kind of a silly question if you ask me. The kind of change that Fi and Ne tends to evoke in the mind is really microscopic in effect compared to the overall need to survive and thrive through change and conservation.
It depends and it's a little obvious... If I like the change, I'm receptive to it and happy that that will change. If I don't like the change, I just resist it...
If something is changing to get more confortable, easier, closer to someone I like, farther from someone I don't like, to do something I like doing, etc, I embrace it. If it's the opposite, I resist it. I may also change my point of view (due to reasoning, thinking or someone convincing me) and change from embracing to resisting and vice-versa...
I don't mind change. I like routine, as long as there's enough stimuli within that routine to keep me interested. With the existence of the internet, I would say that I may never get bored of my routine now. Big change can be scary, but also exciting, so I'm kinda neutral about it.
Chimera of Filth
A gruesome beast with dripping flesh
Clings to me as a sick fixture
My throbbing heart it gnawed apart
It stalks and hunts me through mirrors
i like change a whole lot...i tend to constantly want to improve things. however...i often order the same things when i go to certain restaurants. which seems a bit odd for 7 maybe but i'm almost...nostalgic about it...like i'm recreating fond memories or something.
There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.
