Whether it is unexpected, sudden, planned, welcome or unwelcome, change can be very de-stabilising. Whatever it is due to, when the circumstances of our lives are altered we need time to adapt. This is often where the difficulties arise because it is a time of uncertainty and uncertainty makes us feel uncomfortable. Although change can be abrupt, we may need time for the psychological adaptation – transition from one part of our lives to the next – to happen. Be patient and go with the flow.
Bereavement and grieving are generally associated with the death of a loved one, but people can experience similar reactions following other kinds of change or loss.
Feeling stuck, sluggish and becalmed can be uncomfortable. In the ocean of life though, it is best to go with the prevailing conditions.
