In today’s world, with a major pandemic … there has been a lot of change.
Change is not always comfortable.
And yet, it’s inevitable in life that things will change.
As I have pondered different ways I have dealt with change, I decided to make a list.
Hopefully this list can help you with whatever change you are dealing with.
Just remember “comfort retards growth.”——G. Henry
Therefore— change can be a good thing. Just learning and adjusting to change is key.
1- Find your support system.
Any kind of chance is hard, reach out to others that you are kind and loving towards you. Lean on them to express the struggles you’re dealing with. Also let them know if all the good that is happening omg because of the change.
2. Keep a daily gratitude journal specific to why you’re grateful for the “change” you experienced.
There is always something small that you can be grateful for. Even amidst the current pandemic I know I have personally been grateful for the extra family time we’ve had together.
3. Don’t set unlikely expectations.
Meaning, don’t think that because you moved somewhere new. all your previous issues will melt away. Take things a day at a time.
4. Embrace the idea that there will hard days. Yes— embrace it.
Somehow this change, this uncomfortable hard thing that you’re experiencing … will shape you into the person you will be.
5. Remember that “tomorrow is a new day.” Or the age-old saying of “things get easier in time.”
So give yourself TIME to accept the change. And truly — GIVE YOURSELF A BREAK!
