It all depends on the person as to see how they see change.
People don't really want to change. They like to stay in their comfort zone. Yet there are people who whine and complain about how horrible their lives are. They will do anything not to change. They will even attack people verbally and/or physically who dare want to help them. Once people feel they are leaving their comfort zone, will do anything to stay there. They will even have you pray for their situation to get better but are unable to do anything to make that change. There are people who want their lives to magically change - only it doesn't and with that they keep plodding ahead as they always have whining, complaining and defending.
Bringing about true change does require you to get out of your comfort zone. To go ahead with anxiety and fear because you are stepping into the unknown. True change is getting to the other side and you will see how better your life is. It won't be perfect - it will be better.
Are you really ready and willing to change so your life can be better than what it is now? Are you really willing to do what it takes to have a better life regardless of how long it takes?
Only you can answer these questions and make the change you want to see in your life.
