What is a Transition or Life Change?

In the simplest terms, a transition is a change. Transitions are life’s way of asking us to reëxamine our present way of being. These transitions can be predictable such as a child leaving for college or marriage, or they can be unpredictable, such as the sudden death of a loved one or a traumatic accident. Whatever the degree or intensity of the event, every transition we experience has one thing in common. It forces us to make changes to our existing life. A major life transition literally closes one chapter of our life, and starts a new one, putting us in a new place and direction that we have not walked before.

Identifying the need for help

Change is inevitable. Life is going to happen whether we want it to or not. Transitions can be the most difficult experiences of our life. However, we must go through them to get to the other side. When you are unable to work through a transition and it starts to affect your daily life, causing problems in your relationships, at work or it begins to affect you emotionally or physically; it is time to get outside help.

Counselors can teach us how to accept change and move on in life. Sometimes all we need is a supportive ear to guide us through the transitional period. Whether it is a positive change or one that causes monumental grief in our lives, the process is the same. We must first learn to let go of what was and then look at what is and can be. Counseling can teach us how to do this is a safe and supportive environment.
