Can You Adjust to Life's Big Changes?

Monday, October 22, 2012


Change is a natural part of life. Nothing ever stays the same. Getting married, getting divorced, moving, kids graduating, getting promoted, getting laid off, retiring – the list of life changes goes on and on. For some individuals, adjusting to change comes easily, but for others it can cause an inordinate amount of stress. 

 

How can you effectively adjust to change? Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

 

  • Let go of the idea that life has to be a certain way. 

 

  • View each change as an opportunity to grow. 

 

  • Identify the different strengths and different weakness that the change brings out in you. Maximize the positive.

 

  • Don't ignore the emotions that change cause. Feel the emotion, but learn to let it go. 

 

  • When you decide to accept the change, the process to moving past it will feel much quicker. 

 

  • Avoid placing blame on yourself or others. 

 

If you find that you are not able to move with the change in your life, you might be dealing with Adjustment Disorder. This is a short-term disorder that occurs after a major change. The individual is unable to cope with that change. If this sounds like you, seek out the help of amental health care professional. They will be able to guide you through this adjustment process.
