Change; What is your associated fear ?

Foregoing the definition of change, I've been thinking about why human beings are fundamentally afraid of it, generally speaking. Theoretically, it would appear it relates to one, or more, of the 6 main fears, plaguing the individual human psyche and they are:

fear of poverty
fear of criticism
fear of ill health
fear of loss of love
fear of old age
fear of death

It would appear, there are few people who have dealt with what they fear most in order to deal with change from the most beneficial mental/spiritual place during changing times. I have one left to deal with and, of course, it has the most aggressive hold on me, so again, I have some work to do !

Caveat: Even if we find we are excited by an upcoming change, there is generally, one or more of these ghostly fears lurking in one corner of the mind or another. Ergo, it would behoove each of us to search out our ghosts and deal with them accordingly.
