CHANGE – The constant that imbalances the equation of life
They say change is the only constant in life.
And the Millennial generation (largely people born 1980 and onwards) have moved quickly beyond the Gen X (largely people born between 1960 and 1980), and adapted to change really well. I am a part of the same millennial generation and I feel that because we grew up with technology, have always been online or connected 24/7 , we are happy and open to embrace the ever increasing dynamicity that life offers us.
For us Millenials, change largely brings great amount of joy; taking us places – from career opportunities, to exploring places across the globe for work and leisure, to finding a new version of our own self.
While we clearly acknowledge the value of change, there is no denying that it puts a lot of demands on us- physically and emotionally- and we end up feeling stressed. And suddenly, the ‘valued’ change can turn into an ‘ugly’ challenge that life has thrown at us. Sub-consciously, we start evaluating ourselves against some set “Normal” standards and often, when we fall short of these targets, we feel like we have failed. This makes us blame the change for the “bad” circumstances we have landed in.
There is no denying that this change
To sum it up, Change stresses us out by placing huge demands on our energy, time and creativity, mental and spiritual self, which we may not feel equipped to handle. It is then that the fear of failure, the fear of inadaptability creeps in and we lose ourselves.
Do you or someone you know is suddenly going through this ‘ugly’ challenge in life? If yes, this is what you can do:
- First and foremost, it is essential to accept the flaws in ourselves. Undergoing a plethora of emotions, is not a sign of weakness- it’s just what humans do. Accept that we all will have our own moments of fear, doubts or weakness and it is FINE!
- Take a step back and look at the bigger picture. Do not try to find a reason- good or bad-for the happening. Look at what life has to offer beyond this unhappy moment.
- Find a network/support system that fuels the positivity in you. Join Positivitree – our Facebook group.
- Keep yourself engrossed in meaningful, productive and creative work to take your mind off the stress
Often, when things go a little out of hand, these Do-it-Yourself tips do not work and we may not be able to help ourselves.
However, something that can help is TALKING-talking it out to an empathetic ear. Do not hesitate. Portea is very much here and ready to listen.
