Change can be the most challenging thing for a lot of people. Some people are so scared of change that they get stressed out so much that they have panic attacks. We fight to hold onto what is familiar, secure, and comfortable. We as humans love to be comfortable.
So I am proposing you be comfortable being uncomfortable. Read that back again and think about it.
Adapting to change has been something I have been doing for most of my life. I have learned to treat change as an adventure and something to look forward to instead of something to dread.
Is it a scary adventure sometime, yes, but sometimes change is forced upon us and we have to suck it up anyway whether we like it or not. Whether death, the end of a relationship, a new school, or a new job all of these things force us to change.
I am not here talking about goal setting and staying comfortable where you are and not achieving your goals, I am talking about what life throws at you every day.
When there is construction on the route we take every day we have to make a change to our route, this can be annoying at best but it is still a change you have to deal with.
Stress plays a major factor in our health and if you are stressing over every change that happens to you then the potential damage to your health is greater.
It has taken me a long time to figure out that all the moves I have made ( all of which were not of my choice) have taken me to where I am meant to be at this time in my life. I feel very comfortable and content and excited about where I am right now.
Whatever plans we make, whatever hopes and dreams we have will manifest themselves, it may not be as quickly as you would like but it will come to pass.
Your attitude to the changes in your life will determine how the change affects your emotional and physical state. Being aware of your emotional state is the first step to dealing with the change you are going through.
Change is going to happen whether you like it or not so learning how to deal with it is something you should consider. Ask yourself ‘what is it about change that bothers me?’
Take one day at a time and focus only on the day, not tomorrow or next week or next year, be in the moment, and dealing with change will be so much easier.
As always when it comes to emotional issues I always recommend Emotional Freedom Techniques
Embrace change and look forward always.
