Life Transitions

To be alive means to live with change. There are many recognizable life milestones such as leaving home, marriage, births, divorce, illness, aging, deaths, losing a job, establishing a home, changing a career, and relocating.

How we manage these events depends to a large part on what we learned as children. In a healthy family, children learn to easily adapt to change. However, if the family was filled with uncertainty, trauma, abuse or chaos, children were programmed to fear change. Even minor change may cause them to overreact.

Emotional responses to change are very normal. But debilitating fear and feelings of being victimized or being stuck bring on depression or other reactions, such as panic attacks, substance abuse, rage, and violence.
