    Change-Is it easy for you?

    Hey everyone,

    There have been a lot of changes going on around me lately and I was wondering how others handle change. Is change easy for you or do you struggle with it? Is it easier to deal with if it is a positive change, or does any kind of change present difficulties?

    I am typically a "creature of habit" and although I know change is necessary sometimes and can be for the better it can still be a challenge to "get on board".

    So how about you guys? How do you handle change?

    Looking forward to reading your responses.

    Hi Kathy,
    Change at times can be hard for me. I think it does matter if the change is a positive change or a negative change in terms of how it effects me. I have noticed at my last employer whenever anyone left regardless of it was for a good or bad reason it was hard for me, but I have learned to deal with in a better way. I tell myself that change is evident as long as your living and that seems to put things in perspective for me.

    Hey Kathy,

    I have dealt with a lot of change over the past two years since I quit the corporate world. Most of this change was very welcomed, but each change still has it's challenges. I feel like my life is still in a constant state of flux at this point in it, so one think that helps me is the perspective that everything is temporary. When I'm starting something new and it's difficult, I remember that it's not going to last forever. Diving right into something up front also makes it easier because you learn more fast tackling thing head on.

    Another thing that helps me is to keep some form of routine, even when most things are changing around me. A morning workout or ritual is helpful for me and makes me feel accomplished. Right now, CNET is a part of my morning ritual. Even if everything after that is different, I do CNET every morning and it helps me to feel like I'm still in my old routine.

    Good luck with handling change!

    Hey Kathy,
    Yeah I tend to not be the greatest at handling changes. If it's a positive one, I tend to get a little anxious, but I will eventually readjust myself to the new situation knowing that it is most likely good for me.

    Currently, I just went through a breakup and that change has been difficult. Not having someone around my house anymore, or having someone to talk to all the's very strange, and I've been having a super hard time with it.

    Ultimately change is usually a good thing and leads to something greater, but tis' getting through the path and journey, that is difficult.

    Hi Kathy!

    I really enjoy change and think it is something that keeps us actively striving to do better and be better. Change is necessary and beneficial.

    However, during times of transition is when my anxiety comes out. I feel uneasy before change occurs in wondering what this new lifestyle will be like. Once the change happens I usually do well, but the anticipation kills me!

    I have experience a lot of change in the last 10 years. My parents divorce, graduating high school, moving to college, graduating college and starting a job, switching career paths, and being in and out of relationships. All of these things were big changes in my life, but all made me stronger and I was able to learn a lot from each thing.

    Thanks for a great topic!

    I hate Change! Well Most of it! I just try to pretend I am cool with it because complaining makes it worse!

    Re: Change-Is it easy for you?

    I guess the thing about me and change is that as much as I hate change forced on me, I am pretty adventurous and will choose change myself pretty often.
