We all experience constant changes. Usually we can manage them without having a major issue. However, some life events may leave you anxious, depressed, afraid and without knowing what to do next. These events may include a death in your family, marriage, divorce or break-up, entering menopause, diagnosis of a medical condition, being an at home caregiver, unaccustomed behavior from your teenagers, children leaving the nest, retirement, or career changes. Of course, the list is endless.
Some of these changes are unavoidable and you have no choice but to find some way to cope. For example, you can’t reverse a cancer diagnosis as much as you might want to. Other changes appear to be slow motion crashes that are potentially avoidable but it is hard to see how, such as the dissolving of a relationship. Sometimes you just need help to see a better path.
