Help! Change is scary
Are you making changes in your life? Do you have the support you need
to make them?
Change isn't easy. Sometimes it's downright scary. For some people,
it's more difficult than for others. In some cases, you have chosen
the change: accepted a new job, married, moved to a new home. At other
times, you had the change forced upon you: an illness, death of a
loved one, job loss.
It doesn't matter how the change arrived at your doorstep. Just be
sure you get what you need to support you in making the transition—in
doing the grieving for whatever you've lost (even when the change is
good, you lose things), in letting go of the old and in accepting and
moving on to the new.
If you are fortunate enough to have someone in your life who can
support you, ask directly for whatever help you need. Perhaps you even
want to write out an informal contract with her or him, spelling out
what you need or would like for support. This is not the time for
assumptions. Nor is it the time for being a martyr or holding back. Be
Seek out the resources you need. Don't be afraid to ask.
And if you want help, please contact me. We can begin with a no-obligation, complimentary strategy session.
