Sometimes change is a pain in the ass.
Often we are kinda set up, we feel overwhelmed and our attitude sucks, we believe we are ‘over worked and under paid’.
There are moments when our awareness let’s us know we are stressed out.
When we feel depressed and stressed, change can become an insult.
So to reframe the problem, we are stressed and depressed and the insult of change just made us aware of it.
Damage control or triage may allow us a short term fix. We may manage the change.
But reality tells us to work out the rest of the problem…
So if we are just feeling depressed and stressed we can do what we always do: rest and relax, get on with the rest of our day.
We may chat it out with friends and relatives or write it out in a journal, do our exercises or work out, play with our hobbies. finish our chores and other responsibilities. Hit the shower and get a good night of sleep.
If your version is more like TV and beer we may have a bigger problem.
The idea is to find out our problem and start to work it out and try not to make it worse.
But we may have to make it worse if we are still stuck or unaware how bad a problem we really have.
No matter how far along the continuum of change you find us, remember we are all on the same path.
Some of us have not met with clinical depression or harmful stress, but wait for it.
We all have a chance to meet them along the path.
Life is the challenge and it is full of change.
Good luck with both!
