Change is inevitable

There is nothing permanent except change- yet we struggle with change and transitions just the same. Why is change so hard?

We happen to like familiarity and find comfort in it. Breaking away from familiar patterns, places, and people is difficult. Even positive changes can be difficult. Like your first semester in college, starting a much-desired job, moving into your dream home, or the birth of your child. All of these are likely positive life changes, ones that you had hoped and wished for. Yet these are some of the more stressful times in your life.

It can be even harder when life changes in ways that are completely beyond your control and you are caught by surprise. Unfortunate events like loss of loved ones, loss of financial assets, missed work opportunities, academic setbacks happen in life.

Change can be disorienting and unsettling. Expect to feel somewhat anxious and blue at times when going through a transition. Change will be a part of your life, whether you want it or not. Even though transitions are challenging times, they bring great opportunities for new beginnings.
