Such is the Daily prompt.
You need to make a major change in your life. Do you make it all at once, cold turkey style, or incrementally?

You’re always told that change is as good as a holiday.
Wonder which changes they mean.
Would that be the ones where you get a new car. Or the ones where your partner decides to trade you in? Or the ones where a work situation goes from normal to bad to incredibly bad?
Well, the question was if you take it in stages or if you just rip off the plaster and take your chances…
That would depend entirely on the kind of change.
If it is to get rid of a philandering rat that parks off in your house, rip it out and off as quickly as possible.
Change jobs? Make the decision, find something else and go. No use hanging around wondering if you’re doing the right thing. If you were you would not have doubts, so there you go.
Some changes are forced on you. Not always something you can do to stop it, you just have to wade through the morass and deal as best you can. They happen suddenly, not always with prior warning. It just happens.
The inner changes. I think those are always the most difficult ones to deal with.
Since, let’s face it, if you feel YOU have to change, it’s because another person thinks you’re not good enough. Usually you can deal with yourself. but when others start having an issue with the person you are, then you want to change. You change the way you think, speak, the things you do. Sometimes yo’re successful. Sometimes you fail dismally, and lose the person you wanted to change for in any case.
In the time I am now, I suppose, if I’m going to change at all, it will be done in stages. First the little things, then the big things.
And I’m still not sure if it’s the right thing to do.
I’m already as thankful as I’m likely to be. I already have all the belief I’m likely to have. I’m relatively sorted money wise. At least until end of June. Then all bets are off.
The only thing I really have anything to change for would be for other humans. And I’m not talking family. I’m talking outsiders.
So please. Tell me. Why on earth would I change into something random strangers will like? What are they to me? Why must I bother with them? Ar they going to change to fit in with me? I can attest to the fact that they don’t.
There are people out there that does not mind me. And those are the ones I’m thankful for. I don’t need much in the way of human interaction. And what I’m getting now serves my purposes just fine. More, and I will spend more of money than I really want to on coffee and more time than I care to on dishes. Less and I really will be a hermit.
Therefore. For the moment. I’m sorted. I don’t want to change who and what I am. So I’m not going to. But if I wanted, I will do it in easily reached stages.
And now, the song this reminded me of…
And another song from that movie. I’ve never seen the movie, but the tunes rock 😉
