We want change !

This is a profound truth: We all want to change the elements we don't like about our lives, whether we control them or not, but there is a corollary that is very much as true; we also don't want to change!

I saw that quote on Facebook and found it so true that it got me thinking. We wish life would change around us, but we are generally reluctant to pitch in, by taking an “the others but not me” or “not in my backyard” point-of-view.

So the result is obviously predictable: We fight back, we scream loud enough, we get petitions signed, we demonstrate and in the end nothing that we dislike ever changes. We probably should turn the proposition into: “We all want change, why don't YOU start!”
