If you're a metathesiophobic, that is, someone who fears change - congratulations! You're human.
Most of us fear change because change usually brings the unfamiliar. When we encounter the unfamiliar, we feel like we're losing control. So, experiencing resistance to change is a common feeling. So common, in fact, that it's easy to find great quotes on the subject of change. Here are some to ponder:
