How do you transition in life?

Recognize that transitions will always have a particular place in your recollections. View stress as a challenge rather than a danger. Recognize the advantages of change. Remember the last time you effectively negotiated a transition? Turn to your support system. Preparation, preparation, preparation.

Transitions are inevitable; we all have to deal with them. Some transitions are major events in your life such as moving away from home, changing jobs, or learning a new language. Others are smaller, such as changing schools or college classes. Still others may be seasonal, such as winter clothing or holiday food colors. Whatever the case may be, transitions are challenges that we all have to face at some point in our lives. It is what you do after you recognize that a transition is necessary that makes all the difference.

The first thing you should do when faced with a transition is take stock of your situation. Ask yourself these questions: Am I ready for this change? Is this change good for me? Will this change help me achieve my goals? If you cannot give "yes" to all of these questions, then the transition isn't for you right now. Consider your options carefully before making any decisions. Do not just go through with something because you fear what might happen if you don't?

If you do decide to move forward with your decision, then the next step is to prepare for the transition.

Why are the transitions between life stages difficult?

Life transitions are difficult because they push us to let go of the familiar and approach the future with fear. Most life changes start with a series of losses, such as the loss of a job. The death of a person close to you may be another example of a loss that causes a transition. After these losses, you feel empty inside and need to fill this gap with something or someone else will collapse.

Losing something we value greatly is also difficult. When we lose our job, we usually look for another one soon after. This is because finding another job isn't easy; it requires planning ahead and putting ourselves in possible scenarios where we might not find a job. Losing our job suddenly doesn't allow time for this kind of thinking; we need to act quickly if we want to keep our head above water.

Other losses don't require looking for a new job. For example, when my mother died, I stopped going to school. I didn't leave home because I wanted to be alone instead I needed time to deal with her death. Losses like these can't be replaced so there's no point looking for a new version of yourself when what's left is broken.

Transitions are difficult because we need to let go of the past and face the future with hope.
