I’ve never been good with change. I get comfortable and then I want things to stay comfortable forever. I’ve learned that I grow the most in these periods of changes, in the uncomfortable moments when I’m forced to learn.
2020 has probably been uncomfortable for the vast majority of people. We’ve had to change where and how we are working and learning. We have had to adapt to the uncertainties that this pandemic has thrown at us. We have had to work together to stop the spread of a virus that we were learning more about every day.
To say that 2020 has just been “uncomfortable” would be an understatement.
All of these changes this year has given me whiplash. I’m tired, burnt-out, and wanting to quit most days. I’m sure many of you are in the same boat and it’s easy to forget that we are all feeling a level of anxiety that is probably higher than we are used to.
I don’t think that anyone can say for sure when this will be over. I’ve heard so many mixed messages from different sources and I’ve honestly just stopped listening to most of them.
If you are feeling uncomfortable, anxious, or burnt-out know that you aren’t alone. One day we will look back at this and be able to see how much change occurred in 2020.
How are you doing? Honestly.

One thought on “Change Is Uncomfortable”
I’m still working through the pandemic, and tested negative for Corvid-19. I wear protective equipment and stay at home when I can, so I can’t complain. Prices are up in the market place, but the shelves are mostly stocked. Family and friends are well. We video conference and use Amazon Alexa for communication. I try not to worry about the things I cannot change. This helps me sleep a little better at night.
