Life can change anytime. You could have a baby, get married, get a new job, lose a loved one, start a relationship, end one, move to a new place, take on more responsibilities at work, begin taking care of an elderly parent, and on and on. Whether the transition is reason to celebrate or heart-breaking, it can be hard.
You may be feeling:
A counselor can help put your focus on the positivity of change, give you healthy coping techniques, process feelings of grief, and give you suggestions to get life back to a comfortable place.
Change is part of life, and chances are you have already transitioned successfully through many significant events of your life. It’s important to recognize your past will always hold a special place and is the foundation of who you are today. Embrace that reality and look ahead to the future with a focus on the positives. Acknowledge that you will experience stress, and that is ok. A little stress can actually be a good thing.
You can take that stressful experience and turn it into a mountain you have conquered, an occasion you can rise above. It’s an accomplishment, and we at Move Forward Counseling are here to help you on your journey.
