coping with change and crisis
Change - even change for the better - can be stressful and challenging. Significant change can be frightening or confusing. It may require us to look closely at who we are and how we live. Our expectations and way of being in the world may need to shift in the face of new realities.
Crisis presents several faces. First there's the loss of the old situation. This can be accompanied by fear, grief, confusion, uncertainty and anxiety. But there's also the possibility of a new and potentially better future, though it may be uncertain while in mid-crisis. Finally, the experience of crisis presents an opportunity to explore and strengthen personal resourcefulness and resilience in the face of unpredictability.
