"We’re all just walking each other home.” Ram Dass
Change is inevitable. Life is going to happen whether we want it to or not. This is not to say that transition is easy. On the contrary, transitions can be one of the most difficult experiences of our life. Every life transition asks us to let go in some way, either of a past way of thinking or doing. When we’re able to do this, we are given an opportunity to replace the old way of being with something new.
During the transitional period however, it can feel terribly uncomfortable. We can feel disconnected from others and and even from ourselves. While this is natural to some extent, when you can’t move through this phase without feeling completely overwhelmed, and in a state of emotional turmoil, that’s a clue that you could us some extra support for yourself.
Whatever the transition, counseling with an experienced listener is an excellent opportunity to help you take stock of your life and move forward into your new beginning with less pain and resistance. Please know that help is available if you want it.
