When something big happens that changes our life, it can become life changing; in fact anything that changes how we feel about someone or something. Coping with life changes is something we must all learn to do.
But any form of change can take its toll on our mental health. It’s easy for us to become fixated on events that we have no control over. If we stand back and look at the bigger picture, we will find we have some control.
Check in with your feelings so that you pinpoint any problems, so that you can make positive choices and set new goals. Focus on and practice self-compassion, and positive self-reflection.
How you see and what you feel about yourself, will always make a difference to your relationships and how you will cope when situations arise. Lifestyle also plays a part in how we will cope.
Allow for physical wellness and emotional health, and you will cope much better through those life changes.
