Making a change means acknowledging the difference making the change earlier would have made

From Existential Psychotherapy by Irvin Yalom:

‘To decide to change would entail accepting existential guilt‘

Change can often be good & powerful, but the existential guilt is often too powerful for all of us at different times in our lives. Better to make no change and avoid having to deal with the truth.
