Life Transition / Change
The nature of life is change. We are constantly growing into new roles and learning how to cope as our identities shift accordingly. Common transitions include joining the working world, getting married or divorced, having children, and changing careers. While parts of these changes may be joyous, it is also natural to feel anxiety over the uncertainty they bring and sadness over changes in our identities that they signal.
At times, these feelings of anxiety or sadness can make it hard to fully embark on or embrace change. We may end up feeling stuck in limbo between the life we are currently living and the life we want for ourselves. Therapy can help us understand and navigate the complexities of these transitions. As a result, we can start to feel a sense of purpose and optimism as we adapt to the new demands of our life’s journey.
