Does change make the world go round?

If it does, please let me get off and stay forever right here. I have never liked change. My husband's not too crazy about it, but our daughter lives for changes. (Where did she get that?) She said when they retire, she would love to live on a cruise ship permanently and travel all over the world. The thought of that horrifies me! When she was young, I never knew how her bedroom furniture was going to be arranged when I came in from work. I like to take trips, but I like coming home better. Vacations are wonderful and I love eating in a new restaurant or even just riding along roads we haven't been on before. But I always want home to come home to. One of the reason I don't like change is partly because I grew up in the military and I hated always being the new kid in school. I wasn't outgoing and was rather shy, so I was pretty much invisible. I like to buy new things for the house, but I like to leave the furniture where it is, even it I'm replacing it with a new piece of furniture. Are you like my daughter and live for change, or are you like me and need familiarity and stability? Or are you somewhere in between?

I hate change. It stresses me out and causes me extreme anxiety. My partner also does not like change. He moved around a lot when he was little too. (I grew up in one place but lived in an unstable environment.) I like familiarity and stability.
