Accepting Change / Life Transitions

Even if you haven’t experienced a loss, life is often full of change and sometimes this scares us.  Perhaps it’s moving to a new place, switching jobs, leaving your nuclear family or switching universities.  These are just some examples of changing contexts and needing to redefine yourself and develop new supports.

Sometimes it helps to have a familiar trusted person to talk to when things are changing and you are afraid.  This is a time to sort through your fears and thoughts and make choices based on what is best for you.  This could include developing new resources, learning to cope with anxiety, loneliness and fear and learning to enjoy spending time with yourself as you develop this new life sphere.  Therapy can help with this.
