Resistance To Change


Change is considered to be an important aspect of life. Every single person goes through some change or another.

A change of environment; change of friends; change of priorities; change of interests; and many more such things.

Some people love the change, some don’t. And some, literally resist it.

People will tell you, “Resisting Change is Resisting Life“.

But what if someone isn’t capable of adapting to change? Should you push that individual and destroy what he is?

Some people resist change because they are stubborn and want the things to be just the way they want. Some resist it because they are biologically incapable of adapting to change.

The Asperger Syndrome.

Asperger syndrome is a form of autism. People with Asperger syndrome find difficulty in social relationships, communication and adapting to changes, among other things.

People with Asperger’s attempt to control their environment typically by clinging to well-defined routines and minimizing spontaneous alterations in their surroundings.

Change isn’t too friendly for people with Asperger’s.

A defined set of bed sheets; a particular side of bed to sleep on; a set place for everything in the room and office; a handful of social acquaintances; a specific way to do things; these are few of the many eccentricities of people with Asperger’s.

Asperger’s is a milder Autism Spectrum Disorder.

To some extent, there is an overlap between Asperger’s and High-Functioning Autism (Autism without intellectual disability).

People with Asperger syndrome can display behavior, interests, and activities that are restricted and repetitive and are sometimes abnormally intense or focused. They may stick to inflexible routines, move in steretyped and repetitive ways, preoccupy themselves with parts of objects, or engage in compulsive behaviors like lining objects up to form patterns.

Individuals with Asperger syndrome may have signs or symptoms that are independent of the diagnosis, but can affect the individual or the family. These include differences in perception and problems with motor skills, sleep, and emotions.

And Asperger’s isn’t something that stands out. People with Asperger’s have good language and cognitive skills.

People with Asperger’s syndrome may have high intelligence and better than average skills. Asperger’s is considered a highfunctioning form of autism.

P.S. Lower, as well as Higher Intelligence can both be a result of a disorder. So can be the inability to adapt to change and process emotions.

  1. Absolutely. My son has high functioning autism and his inability to regulate his emotions when things change is a struggle. There is little convincing him otherwise in the moment. It is so important to acknowledge these limitations in people with autism. It builds awareness as well as empathy. Wonderful pot

    • I sincerely hope your cousin doesn’t have “Aspergus”.
      For one, there is no such thing as Aspergus.
      And secondly, if I assume Aspergus to be some kind of shortened version of ‘Aspergillus’, and say your cousin is infected, Aspergillosis is a rapidly invasive infection.

  3. My second son has Aspergers . Change seemed impossible when he was really young but daily work around teaching him that life is going to throw you curveballs has helped him prepare for the real world ahead . He’s now 15 and no one would know he has it but he will always struggle to communicate his feelings and for those that don’t know him can sometimes maybe find him ‘inconsiderate’ of others feelings . This isn’t the case at all , if he realises he’s hurt someone he feels that remorse much more than others ❤️xx
