Big events in our lives can often be the catalyst for big changes to the way we view things. We are often so entrenched in the daily life we lead that we don’t look outside the box. It’s as if we are blinkered and like a horse in the Grand National we are only able to see what is directly in front of us. Often it’s when we’re faced with some terrible eventuality such as death, divorce or redundancy that we are forced to confront our lives and take stock of our true position. It is at this point we can end up taking a completely different road from the one that we would normally tread. It is often through circumstances, rather than positive action on our behalf, that change for the better takes place in our lives.
Experiencing change throughout my life, has brought about a need to help others cope with similar occurrences, and to bring a glimmer of light to those people finding it difficult to just get out of bed in the morning. To you I would say just keep doing it, having the faith in yourself and others will get you through this difficult time.
Most people don’t even like small changes and find it difficult to embrace change of any kind. Work for instance is a prime example, being told that you have to move offices or desks can completely disrupt someone’s ability to concentrate. But what about a change in circumstances, how would you react to learning you had won the Euro Millions? I’m sure we’d all like the opportunity to discover the answer to this, but how many people would actually cope with such a great change to their lives.
When we look back from the future to the point in our lives where something awful happened, we will more than likely see that out of something really terrible came a truly positive outcome. Life is difficult and in this evolving world we are part of, we can be pretty sure that change is ever present and that at any one time there will be friends, work colleagues or acquaintances, dealing with change of one kind or another. Try to think of others especially in the work situation, you might be stronger than them and more able to adapt. Kindness shown when one is at a low ebb is doubled in its force, so remember that doing a small thing to help can make a big difference.
Change is something we should all learn to cope with, it’s something that happens daily, even in very small ways. If we can learn to embrace change in a small way, then how much better we will be equipped to deal with those life changing happenings in our lives. Change is here to stay so the better we deal with it the better our lives will become.
