It won't.  

I'm realizing I'm growing, developing, changing, and become more of who I am.  It's not easy, but it's not supposed to be.  If it wasn't hard, it wouldn't be worth it.  

We did not change as we grew older; we just became more clearly ourselves.  ~Lynn Hall

So since I love quotations, and they soothe me when things are "not boring", I'm including some here for your viewing pleasure.

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.  ~Victor Frankl

If we're growing, we're always going to be out of our comfort zone. ~John Maxwell

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.  ~Anatole France

But really - 

It is not necessary to change.  Survival is not mandatory.  ~W. Edwards Deming

Personally though, I don't want to survive - I want to thrive.

Remote from human connection
Secluded in apartness
Without aid
To the exclusion of all others and all else
Only Lonely

The heart as the source of emotion
To face pain
With spirit and bravery
Forging ahead
In spite of criticism
Or shame
