Are There Good Reasons to Resist Change?

We have all seen good changes and bad changes before. We have seen them at work, at home, and out in the world at large. We've seen changes that appeared good at first, turn out to be bad later and vice-versa.

So what should people do when they see bad change coming their way? Should they just let it happen? or should they make their concerns known? If they are forceful in making their themselves heard, will their actions get labeled as "resistance to change"? Will this "resistance" then be seen as a negative trait of human nature and therefore something that must be overcome? Or will their concerns be taken seriously and viewed as issues to be resolved?
