You Are Not Alone
It’s normal to feel alone during change. We often think the changes we are facing are so unique that no one else can help or understand us. So what do we do? We isolate ourselves, retreating into a lonely inner world.
But change is easier when you let other people in! And remember, whatever the situation, there is always, always, someone who can help.
When you share the details of your change, you’ll find that there is so much encouragement and change advice waiting for you. A quick way to embrace change is to surround yourself with a team of people who can help. Your team can be made up of family, friends, clergy members, therapists, co-workers—or anyone else you have in mind. These people will listen, support and encourage you, but most importantly, help get you back on a path of hope and optimism!
Today, practice saying the three simple words that will help you through any change: I need help. Most people think that they will be viewed as weak if they say these words, but the opposite is actually true. People will admire your desire to grow and learn.
Remember how good you felt the last time you guided someone through change?
