Change is an activity with a side salad of emotion tied to your level of comfort. If I eat too many cookies, my stomach will full of cookie dust and sugar and I'll feel discomfort. If I change cookies to carrots, I'll have a different outcome because I changed my option. I might have mild discomfort from all the vitamins and the organic sugar, but I didn't overeat the carrots.
