Life Transitions

1173080017Life keeps moving on – nothing stays the same.

It is true that throughout our lives, we will encounter the exercise of transitioning from one thing to another. These transitions could mean going away to college, buying a house, or taking a new job.

While exciting, these significant life changes often induce stress in individuals because they represent change and involve adjusting to the life event.

Some transitions in life are less anticipated and may affect a person more deeply, therefore requiring a more extended period of adjustment. These life events include the death of a loved one, the ending of a relationship, the loss of a job, sudden illness, or an accident, among others.

Not all life events come with a warning; even when they do, they are challenging to process and comprehend.

Some changes are hard to process.

As the dynamic of our world changes around us, we are expected to fall in line and seamlessly change with it.

Most often, this is easier said than done because change brings about feelings of uncertainty, fear, self-doubt, a longing for things to stay the same.

We may feel disappointed with how we cope with our life transitions because we don’t fully understand the emotional and psychological impact on us.
