I don’t know who starts peddling these mantras, probably people like me who write self-help books. But the author may not be at fault, the fault lies with those who uncritically ingest this stuff and then keep repeating it to hoodwink the rest of us.
Change can be inconvenient and even frightening, but dealt with constructively it is a lot less troubling. Even changes we look forward to can seem harder than we expected. While change can happen suddenly, transition – the psychological adjustment to new circumstances – takes time.
There is no point in struggling against this, indeed fighting it only makes things seem worse. Instead, there are few steps we can take to help the process along.
