No one likes walking into a situation where they feel that have no control and can’t predict the outcome. That’s why it makes sense that many people are afraid of change and resist it even when the result could be better than their current state. If you’re able to cope with what you have now, why risk making it worse?
But there are people throughout the world who are living through scary, unsafe and unhealthy situations because of their fear of walking away and making a change. For some, that might mean leaving a toxic relationship. For others, it might mean choosing a new career. It also might mean making choices that might inconvenience you but are better for the planet and the world.
Change can be worth the risk.

It is understandable why people fear change - it means entering a period of uncertainty and a loss of control. But one of the top reasons that people resist change is that they associate with a mistake being made in the past. Fear of change is really fear of failure and what that might mean for a person’s sense of self and self image. (HBR)
About 85% of things that people worry about never happen. If you want to reduce the amount of unnecessary worrying that you do, the key is to recognize when it is a healthy defense mechanism that could help you approach a future situation and when it is unfounded or interfering with living a happy and productive life.(NBC News)
