I don't embrace change. Wherever I live, I live with other people. Since I am away from my "residences" for some periods of time, whenever I show up, there has been change in how the house functions, given who is living there. My initial solution is to become a hermit, a whining, complaining, resentful hermit. I don't embrace change. I have problems with a God who might want to be teaching me something, helping me to grow, through the changes I encounter. So I start out with resentment and judgment. Unhappiness, and irritability follow. My tongue wags with complaint. Since the change looks rather permanent, and I having no power to turn it into my favor, I tend to fall back onto acceptance and surrender. Ironically, this seems to take me out of my misery, and to make others around me happier. I don't like surrender. I prefer power. Perhaps there is power in surrender and acceptance? I have heard this is so.
