I generally have trouble with change as I am a person who likes routine and predictability.
However, some changes I like and look forward to. I like vacation. I like special day trips to different places around the state, I like to camp, I LOVE a new tube of lipstick or some other colored make up (but I like the predictability of the same good foundation).
Sorry for any ambiguity in the post y'all I tend to be scattered and random at times.... But I have always bristled at change, like its some kind of direct challenge to my security. But I am working to discover why I fear it. I think I relate change to pain and fear. But sometimes change is the catalyst for wonderful transformations! Note to self- don't be such a whimp!

Your question was about approaching or avoiding conflict; then you adjusted that to how we approach change. I'm bored easily so I often change up my exercises, try new foods, even my daily routine. Now dealing with conflict is another matter entirely.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your srength and all your might. Love your neighbor as yourself.
I would love to tell ya I embrace it but as I got about two pounds from goal and then ran back to where I started and as I head back the other way again...I have to say maybe i'm just a bit scared of change.
