We get one crack at life, therefore it’s important we learn to cope with change as part of that life. It’s important we live presently. For those of us who live presently we will find change, our approach to change and coping with change easier.
We need to see change as something that brings something better, particularly if we’re not happy and we’re stuck on the other side of change. Change has to be better than where we currently may reside.
How do we cope with change?
We must start by asking what’s the worst thing that can happen? What is it that worries you about change and if you choose not to change things, is where you are better? If we’re honest, we will at least want to think about change.
Although we cannot always plan for change, like the unexpected death of a loved one, where we can plan it’s important we plan. If after we’ve taken action and we’re still not comfortable, it’s okay to ask for help.
Once we’re through the other end of change, and we look back, change is never as bad as we think. The mind plays tricks. But change becomes the reason we have a strong resistance, whether we’re avoiding change or opposing change because we think we can’t handle it.
But for most of us the problem isn’t change per se, it’s our inability to work through change because we’re struggling with parts of our childhood.
