Cope with Changes in your Best Possible Ways

Everything disappeared in her life from the age of 32.

What she had known and had experienced had slipped away.

A change she can't get over so easily!

Life is never what you plan when changes spark up everything can vanish,

The saddest, when you hardly know how to cope with those changes affecting your normal day-to- day activities.

Whether, you move to a new place, or lose yourself in a disaster. There is something about your life that makes you see things from a whole new side.

What you took for granted is often lost and never found until a new life comes along. You then realize what your past life meant to you.

First understand the meaning of change before grumbling about the changes in life.

Individuals experience changes most of the time and in many cases changes occur at regular periods.

Most people don't even notice changes like a new building coming up, and of the old open store which closed down.

The little things in your environment go unnoticed.

What was, will never be!

  • What happens when your life changes?

Understand that changes will always happen.

Changes occur in our lives at regular intervals.

  • What changes affect you the most in reality?

  • Is it the change in your lifestyle?

Friendships

Communications skills

People

Culture

Language

Socially my life was bleak not able to communicate in a foreign language had made my situation very difficult.

Society overall can change you tremendously.

If you pay careful attention to the rest of the community, your interests will improve with new changes.

It doesn't mean every person can cope with the necessary changes, not every person is affected by change.

  • Who are affected by change, and weren't ready for the changes in their lives?

New and modern technology does bring about many changes but such changes are easily coped with in society.

  • Ever thought of the unexpected changes and what these changes can do to one?

Life’s' changes can be challenging, and very painful if it affects your family and lifestyles.

Being positive during a change can make you a great person from the inside and outside.

One is willing to learn and forgive to move on to a better life.

Nothing in life is guaranteed. Everything you own and have is temporary.

Enjoy life!

Opening a new chapter in your life is a great chance to pick up the pieces. Put the pieces together to find your new self.

Meet new people to learn from them and yourself on how to achieve new skills.

You will not learn anything if you don't enjoy every bit of what you take part in on a daily basis.

Look at life with love and experiences, in a happy way and have an open mind when change shows itself.

The big part of change is to accept change rather than over look change. If you don't accept change life can be miserable and most unhappy.

Acceptance is most important then you will see delightful things happening for you and your partner.

If you can't learn about it then you won't like anything you see.

You must only try what you know how to get into.

Change to me is unexpected and can ruin a huge part of any individual who fails to understand the reasons for change.

Changes can be from losing a loved one, or from something that you somehow failed to see or protect from going wrong.

The reality is to face up to your challenges and move on.

You are never prepared for change at anytime, a change occurs out of the blue and one has to cope with their differences alone or with loved ones, the choice is yours.

A change can be from many events from a break up with your boy friend, or to relocating from your place to a strange place you didn't know anything about.

In my life I had to cope with my change in relocating to Croatia and I am still going through the daily changes.

Acceptance is important but sometimes I am unable to accept others or their lifestyles life can be most ruthless.

  • Have you experienced many changes in the last year?

You can choose a certain way to react to change.

Individuals coping with change should avoid negative issues this makes them fail in their new lives.

The way one thinks has lots to do with coping in a changed life.

Dealing with new experiences can affect many individuals differently.

It is part of you something you can't ignore. You have to put up with it in your own way, the one that makes you feel most comfortable.

If people don't want to change or don't want to approach change they have less opportunities in the work place and in other parts of their lives.

A change can make you, or your break you.

One is affected, emotionally, psychologically, mentally and physically.

What you experience from changes makes you who you gradually can become and in many cases, stronger and most thoughtful upon others.

Changes make you feel good about yourself and proud of your achievements.

  • Look at change from the following stages:

Firstly, the Primary Appraisal you see what caused you the change. Assess the reasons for change, and how is the change going to affect you from a positive and a negative way.

  • Will change affect you in a threatening way?

Be in control with your emotions.

Most of the time change is good.

Look forward to a new life and a new challenge.

The other is Secondary Appraisal, now figure out how you are going to control the change.

Think about how you are going to approach the situation.

Jot down what is important to you and the situation.

Think about what you are good at in the new place, like job opportunities.

Find out about the news and of events to keep you up to date with your new life and new place.

The effort you put in tells you how well the situation is handled.

Don't reach out for the bottle every time you think of home.

Avoid excessive drinking of alcohol.

Be with positive people to make you feel good.

Avoid negativism.

Don't fall into the deep end.

Make time for a social life it is of great importance never let that pass you by, and stay home alone all day.

  • A positive outlook on life takes you a long way.

A small change or a big change is noticed.

You must know how to cope with a new life, a new job or project, going to a new school, and when meeting up with new people. Relocating can be most challenging.

All of which can make you confused but it shouldn't make you feel dazed.

Generally taking risks, making changes with supportive people, and taking charge of change is crucial to any individual

In speaking a new language is another opportunity of improving communication with foreign people. That depends on your place of relocation.

Own experiences are tough and it can be harder for individuals to be in control of their changes.

      The serenity change is a good principle to follow, even though I've seen people threatening not to accept that there are some things we cannot change. Like you suggested, control is important: control of ourselves in changeable and non-changeable situation. We can change ourselves.

      Wonderful perspective on changes in life. Life is a constant change, each day, each moment. If we enjoy it we will come to terms with it easily.

      Change is something we all face and must learn how to deal with. You have raised many important points in this article, but I the one that I find most useful in my own life is: "Generally taking risks, making changes with supportive people, and taking charge of change is crucial to any individual."

      Enjoyed this hub. Voted up, useful and interesting.

      Ha. I was a tourist too! But there were just too many of us. So many, in fact, that it was hard to walk or move. I didn't like that. Kotor, Montenegro in my oiipnon was so much better, simply because the height of city fortress in Kotor kept most people out. This was great because the few people that dared to climb to the top actually got to enjoy it in relative solitude. In Dubrovnik, however, they just pull in with their cruise ships and flood the city with hundreds and hundreds of tourists. And the lack of bike parking made it even worse. But yes, I was a tourist as well.

      Devika, I have always believed change is life, stagnancy is death. A positive attitude will make it much easier to accept it most times even turn it to one's advantage.

      Great thoughts. Good to see you have met changes in your life head on and succeeded.
