A young, pregnant woman repeatedly wakes up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night after dreaming she is being buried in a mountain of diapers that need to be washed every week.
A man in his fifties avoids looking in the mirror because he can’t believe how much he has aged. So he shuns dating.
Could these be signs of life transitions? It is quite normal to go through many transitions in our life-time. Transition simply means change whether it be positive like graduating from college and looking for work or negative like being diagnosed with a chronic illness. Facing these events can be stressful and challenge our ability to cope with them. If we succeed it can leave us feeling confident, more mature and better prepared to take on more difficult life changes. On the other hand, the inability to navigate them can leave us feeling out of control of our lives leading to substance abuse, depression, anxiety and fearful of life itself. Most things in life are not static – they are in perpetual change.
The inability to surmount changes successfully will leave you feeling like you are living on a roller coaster. Learning how to deal with change is a valuable skill. If you are having difficulty facing a life transition please give us a call. For an initial no-charge consultation call us at 847-227-8323.
