The only constant in life is change. Change is an unavoidable part of life and chances are, you have experienced a significant change in your life already. Many changes in life are unwelcome and shocking, like losing a loved one or the end of a relationship. Some changes that are perceived as positive, like beginning a new job or welcoming a new addition into your family, can also come with challenges and discomfort. What may not seem like a big transition to others may leave you reeling, doubling down on your discomfort with guilt and shame.
