I don’t know about you but change can be a difficult thing to come to grips with.
Change is unavoidable and no one has control over – whether it’s positive or negative. Your experience of change can be made better or worse depending on your reaction and your attitude.
General people deal with change by:
Fear / avoidance ie. debt ignore letters
Ignoring - stay in whats comfortable
Embrace it – and see what happens next
We usually react to change in four stages:
Shock and disorientation - feel confused and uncertain
Anger and other emotional responses
Coming to terms with the "new normal"
Acceptance and moving forward
4 ways to help cope with change:
Focus on the positives that the change is bringing
Look at what solutions you can implement
Manage your stresses
Seek support - ask for help
