Counseling: "What about major life changes?"
Stress from major life changes start much younger than most may consider. When people think of major life changes usually the “really big ones” come to mind like choosing a college, moving out, getting married, buying a home, your first child and so on.
Let’s consider some other scenarios like the first time you crawled or walked, or your first day of school. Do you remember these days? It’s okay if you don’t. These milestones are also some of your first experiences with change. Walking gave you independence and going to school changed your environment, and exposed you to new people, places, and things. The point is we start learning to adapt to change at a young age because it is necessary for survival and for us to evolve and grow.
Life changes are scary and stressful and that’s okay because everyone has been there. Sometimes breaking it down and having a plan can help ease some of the stress and having people to help you out also makes a world of difference. Wherever the wind takes you, it’s all going to work out because nothing lasts forever. There will be bumps along the way as you adjust but stick to it and once you get acclimated, you’ll see just how far you can really go. Let’s talk more in therapy? Reach out today at Simple Therapy.
