We all make many transitions in our lives. Some examples below.
Leaving school and going to college.
Leaving college and choosing a career.
Becoming a parent.
Ending a significant relationship.
Leaving one job to start another.
Experiencing the death of someone close to you.
They are often difficult times for people, whereby letting go of the previous phase and adjustment to the new phase takes longer than we hoped. There is sometimes a seemingly unproductive time in the middle of these transitions where we can feel emotionally unconnected to our present surroundings. It can be tricky.
So acknowledge this. Accept what’s going on and give yourself some leeway. It may not be the most prolific time of your life but that’s OK.
And if you feel like it, maybe read this book on the subject – it’s full of great insights.
