Above all, be gentle with yourself. This is a process, a journey, one where we will hit detours, some initiated by us, some initiated by others. Detours are part of the journey as well, so enjoy it all, process it all and keep going.
Change impacts us. Change changes us. The process of letting go is a necessary part of living. We are impacted by those changes across our 4 continuums: physically, emotionally, cognitively and spiritually. This perpetual state of grieving where we have gains and losses regularly is a part of life.
Some of us are most content and blissful when in our routine. We enjoy knowing exactly what we believe in, what to expect and where we are going. Change, on the other hand, sends us into a tailspin! Even when we know something isn’t working anymore, we stick to it, to the familiar, because the unknown is too scary!
It’s normal for feelings of anger and pain to bubble up at times, but deliberately mastering forgiving yourself will allow you to process and let go quickly. Remember, you are only human and you are allowed to make mistakes and can learn from them.
Communication is an essential part of any relationship. Effective communication can allow for satisfying exchanges with others and a better ability to manage conflict which is inevitable between people. Healthy communication allows for diversity of opinions. Communication is a learned skill for most of us. Learning what our style is, who we best communicate with and what our triggers for conflict are can set you on an effective path for dealing with others.
