I don’t like changes! The word transition sounds like a calm word but in reality these changes can be quite abrupt. You go from being single to being married, from being without children to being a parent, from being healthy to being sick, from being married to being widowed, from being “with someone” to being “without,” from being a parent with a child in the house to being an “empty nester.” Life transitions can seem more like the crashing of waves against treacherous rocks.
Oh, I wish that I could tell you with certainty that “Good things come to those who wait,” and, “Your dreams will come true,”
but I can’t.
Even if you do everything right (whatever that means!), there is no guarantee with how your life with unfold. There are too many complexities in life to assure a certain outcome. I would dare say that the self-help book genre would completely disappear if we could follow a certain set of directions and then KNOW how our lives would turn out.
