It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinately being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.I find I often get paralized when dealing with a big change (or even sometimes a small change) in my life. I have discovered that this happens for 2 reasons--fear and pride.
Change often means that something I have been doing is now ineffective. I immediately, and often subconsciously, take this as a personal insult and the resulting guilt paralyzes me into inaction.
I resist change because of the embarrassement I feel at *having* to change! How prideful is that?!
Pride is an admission of weakness; it secretly fears all competition and dreads all rivals.
