It depends what kind of changes they are. Some are bad, some are good. Even the good ones can be a lot to take in. I hate moving house and hope I don't have to do it again in a very long time. It's such a huge upheaval.
I actually seem to do quite well with change. Probably because I have always been subject to changes - we've always moved house frequently, I've moved cities and spent time just travelling, having kids, job changes, starting a business. Change is pretty constant in my life. I must admit that it is nice not have had any BIG changes in the last 6 months though and I have no plans for more BIG changes anytime soon. Although I do worry that I'll get bored.
I have undergone many massive and life-altering changes over the years,and I do feel that I manage to cope well. As the saying goes....One door shuts and another one opens! My ill health has prompted real Culture Shock types of change in my life and then there is the more common type of change which also manages to bring out my inner strength.I have a way of using humour to cope with most situations,though when I need to dig deep and keep my sanity,I somehow have always been able to.I am definitely a 'Cup is Half FULL' type of person,rather than a pessimistic half EMPTY character!!! I hate negativity,and will always find a positive aspect to situations,no matter how difficult it might seem at first!,So to all of you out there....Many smiles and much happiness always!!!
Change is a good thing in many ways (whether it's a positive or negative impact on your life). It keeps you on your toes, it keeps your mind and physical nature active, it's a natural adaptation of life as it evolves.
It's a constant which helps you keep learning and challenging yourself and appreciate the elements of your life you may not have previously considered. For example the death of my father was one of the most negative experiences of my life and I still grieve for him.
However the challenge of accepting his death and the considerable change in my life where my father was no longer a part of has in the long term helped me with my grieving process by making me question and appreciate the natural progression of life and death, of family, bonding and love, particularly unconditional love, never taking things for granted.
Change can be a difficult thing to process but ultimately, I believe accepting and moving with change is part of Darwin's model of survival of the fittest.
It depends on the type of change it is. I have never experienced major changes such as divorce or moving house (except when I moved into our house after our honeymoon all those years ago ). Some changes are good, and whilst I might resist at first, I realise later that it was a positive change and I am glad that I did it
My life is full of changes. I change jobs every couple of months, I've moved three times in the three years I've lived in Melbourne, and I change career choices all the time!
I don't know how to remain static. I'm too dynamic!
