Phun-size Philosophy # 49 – Resistance

If you are resisting something, it means that you are taking part in the action of opposing something that you disapprove or don’t agree with. It means that you are defending your space and preventing the advances of that something encroaching into your territory. If you are very resilient it means that you are trying your hardest to prevent an outcome you see the future headed in. You want to change this future because it doesn’t benefit you or a particular party you care about. An interesting perspective to take on this topic is that change is a natural part of life and trying to resist it can be detrimental to your future. The thing to consider is that impeding the progress of change in a certain direction doesn’t mean you are resisting change itself. You may see the future as a completely different picture and in order to get it there you must take a stand for what you believe in. The magnitude and result of your efforts to putting up a fight depends on your motivation and want of another future or to keep things the same. If you do desire to keep your environment the same you are then resisting change and that can be a very negative thing to do. Resisting change also means that you are resisting the natural improvement and developmental process of life. It may seem like a terrible thing at first when you naturally grow up and your life changes greatly, but it is important to try not to resist the positive change that comes from maturing. When it comes to counteracting change, you are not allowing one outcome to happen but it is important to take the initiative to be the change you envision. If you want life to be a particular way you need to make it that way. Your success in doing so is directly related to the amount of work and determination you put into it. If you truly want to accomplish your goals you must dedicate your efforts to get around the the obstacles you will inevitably face in life.
