The growth and development of you is an exciting discovery. Did you know that the majority of people are afraid of themselves? In reality, you cannot run from yourself. If you run from yourself, you lose your connection to yourself. This Self is you and is a vital part of you. Life with all its changes is happening around us and will continue happening. The issue here is your connection to yourself. When you connect to yourself, this is when you figure out how to cope with constant change.

Change is here to stay. There will always be the forward movement of new ideas and technology, thank goodness. I would not want to go back in time to the ‘good old days.’ I constantly hear people talk about another time instead of understanding it is now that counts. What you do today will affect things tomorrow.

How do you cope with change?

Entertain the idea of getting in touch with yourself.

Answer these questions

  • Who are you?
  • What are you doing with your life?
  • Is this what you want to do?
  • What do you want to do?

These questions look ordinary and easy, but answer them truthfully, not with the usual idea of demanding what you want, right now, this very minute, without doing anything to achieve what you want. The whole key is you have to be prepared to do something.

Do something.

The first step I would recommend is finding an activity in relation to your answers of the above questions. This activity should become consistent, not a stop and then start again. Often we make excuses for ourselves when deep down inside of us we are actually afraid of changing. Fear of change will prevent you from changing. Challenge yourself; what are you afraid of? Not knowing something, surely not in this information age we live in.

If you do not take any action you remain disconnected. If you are true to yourself you will seek the connection through doing something truly meaningful to you. This way you give yourself permission to change the pattern inside of you from resisting change to coping with change. You might as well accept it you are constantly changing.
