Life Transitions

Life transitions, they call it- anything that changes your routine, a newborn baby, getting married, a job change, being bereaved, and so forth. First Psychology of Scotland defines life transitions as periods in life involving lots of changes to your lifestyle which includes events that make you stop and evaluate your life.

It has been said that people tend to evaluate their lives and ask themselves questions about what they are doing and try to find out what is important to them. I and my family are certainly experiencing several of these life transitions, especially in the past year. 

The COVID pandemic brought about several implications that caused family deaths, change in job, and change in living situations. Major changes like these could definitely shake you up, question everything, and at worse could paralyze you or get you stuck. 

But, instead of going down that negative road, I do believe it is best to take a step forward by just starting to be grateful.

One thing I am grateful for is the friends who helped us, who sympathized with us, and empathized with us in our ordeal. It is heart-warming to have people help us-whether staying with us during the wakes of our family members who passed away, moving stuff and setting up stuff in a different apartment, or even just calling us from overseas. I shall always cherish these friends. Someone said, "We don't lose friends, we just learn who the real ones are." Thank you, Friends!
