If there is something constant in this world, it is “change”. Love it or hate it, everyone must accept this truth and learn on how to deal with it. For people who love stability, change is their archenemy and oftentimes causes stress to many. No matter how you love the idea of being forever young, forever happy, forever with someone you love, forever doing the same thing that you want to do and anything else, changes will come in time and you will have to say goodbye to these things. This could hurt a lot but to help you out on dealing with change.
Here are some things that you need to keep in mind:
Expect the unexpected
Things happen when you least expect it. This is one statement that you should not deny to yourself. Accept the possibilities that might happen tomorrow or the coming days and be prepared for both good and bad news. One good way to cope with change is by accepting the reality and preparing yourself for things that are going to take place.
Ants store food months, weeks and days before the rainy season comes. The same thing should go for you. Make a list of to-dos and set a deadline for all your duties. Be sure that you are ready and that you have enough in case that one scary thing would happen. On the bright side, you also have to be ready for good things to come. One good example is having your passport prepared before winning a free trip outside the country.
Do everything that pleases you. This is one good way to stop stress, frustration and anger from piling up. Watch movies, play your favorite game, eat all food that you like, take some time alone, go out with a friend or treat yourself to something that’s relaxing such as a vacation.
Don’t be a whiner
Complaining about a lot of things won’t do you anything good. This is understandable in a short period of time but after that you must stop and do something. You can’t live in the past so always remember to shake it off and step up.
Turn to your loved ones
After taking some time alone, find help and support from your family and friends. Seeing them in times of trouble will make you feel a lot better and safer. Take some time to pay a visit or ask them to come over depending on your situation.
Once change has got the best of you, let it all out in any safe ways possible. Cry, whine about it and shout if you need to. Let your emotions out if it will make you feel good. Remember the lessons, learn from it and move forward.
