Why do we find change so hard?

We live in a world where change is inevitable. We can’t prevent change, but we certainly can influence how we allow ourselves to be affected by it. Alas, as much as we might prefer it, very few things in life don’t change. Well, even that’s not true, in time ALL things eventually change (second law of thermodynamics)

The psychological question is, why do we find change so hard? According to Self-Coaching, human beings like the security the comes from predictability. Change introduces a state of insecurity/uncertainty as we strive to adapt to that change. Until a new status quo is achieved, change can often produce profound anxiety until that change becomes the new normal.
