Do you know that we humans are reluctant to change in nature? Probably you may know, and if you’re reading this, that means you’re a human being and may have faced some difficulties in your life when you had to deal with big changes and transitions. So this article “How to Deal with Changes in Life” will hopefully help you to deal with the major changes in your life if you are struggling to cope with them.
Any type of change that we deal with as a person, when it’s a huge drastic change or if it’s even a small change, it’s tough to adapt to. Therefore, it can be challenging to accept the change and then move forward with it, and a lot of times people can get stuck into a rut where they kind of resist the change, and they don’t let it happen.
“Everything is temporary; Emotions, places, thoughts, and people. Flow with it all.”
Above is a quote from the internet which kind of summarizes this whole article. You have to flow through life.
Go with the Flow
Things will come, things will go, and it’s all just a flow. If you don’t take it too seriously and accept the things that are happening and find the positive in everything that is happening, it really does help.
Sometimes we tend to focus only on the negative that is happening. So focus more on the positive, and you’ll see more beauty and light. That’s what life is, and indeed life is beautiful. It’s a flow, and it’s a movement. Everything that happens in life is supposed to happen, and if it’s changed that’s a good thing, that means great things are coming to you.
Especially if those changes are significant changes which are really hard to deal with and some of them can be really negative like losing your job, getting in a car accident or losing someone really close to you. But you can also look at it as an opportunity to grow and to find beauty in life. Anything that happens to you in life comes with opportunity and growth.
Change = Opportunity + Growth
Without change, you won’t grow as a person, and you will tend to get stuck into it. So it is better if your life is constantly changing and flowing. Sometimes when growth happens, we tend to lose our sense of comfort and security which is really hard to deal with. That’s something we all have struggled with, but again, when change happens, that’s when great things happen. You grow, and you deal with situations, and you learn to adapt.
Everything is Adaptable
Everything that does change in your life is adaptable. Therefore, you will adapt to it, and you will like it. People think adapting and being a different person as a bad thing, but sometimes it could be a good thing. So, we need to look at it and deal with it positively.
You’re Not Alone
Another thing that we’ve struggled with is being lonely or being alone during a change. You tend to feel more alone during a change because you don’t have a security blanket or people that had helped you previously. You tend to feel like no one really understands you. But if you feel lonely and you feel like “Oh I don’t have anyone,” there’s always somebody out there that you can reach out to. This is the 21st century, and we have everything like social media, great doctors, and if you really think you don’t have anybody, there are so many different types of sources that you can find specific people to talk to. For example, a therapist or through social media or like a dating app or a bumble app (An app which helps you to make friends in your area).
Talk to Someone
Also, there are all these different types of outlets like discussion boards and even online chats with people. It’s an opportunity to get a different perspective and to talk it out, and that actually will help you a lot when you let it all out and talked to someone about it. So, change is going to be a good thing, and it will turn out better.
Let Change Happen and be Open to It
If you are dealing with change and you’re afraid of the future, that’s making you more closed off and not open to different opportunities that can help you and make your life better and make the change worth it. Therefore when there’s a change in your life, you need to be open to different opportunities, and it might be hard sometimes. We can all be in that situation where we tend to close ourselves off, but the key is to be open so you can experience new opportunities and everything that it gives to you to grow as a person and learn.
Let Yourself Feel Your Emotions
Life is full of ups and downs and all these different emotions. So, if you’re feeling down for a day, then feel it, understand it and accept it. But then again like that earlier quote said, everything is temporary. Change is temporary and feeling vulnerable is temporary.
Change = Better Future
So THIS little phase in your life is something that needs to happen to get to THAT phase in your life (if that makes sense. :D)
