It is said that the only constant is change. Most people define life changes as a change that is significant enough to signal the beginning of a new phase of life. A quick search for examples of significant life changes produces a variety of lists of different events. Changes in a person’s family structure (changes in marital status, death of a family member, kids moving out) are among the most jarring of life changes. Moves provoked by changes in jobs or even the desire to live somewhere else uproot us and can throw our world into chaos.
Experts advise us to take time before making other major changes in our lives following a major life change. When we feel bewildered by these events, our instinct can lead us to make rash decisions. Traumatic events like personal loss can make us want to move to another place and start over. This might be radical a change and could further stress us needlessly. It may be wise to take some time and let our new reality to settle in before we make further changes.
However, there are things that need to be done right now. Things like dealing with a loved one’s belongings, getting rid of unneeded furniture (if you are downsizing), or getting your current belongings moved (if a job transfer for example), need to happen now. These tasks have more or less defined timetable and are logical, reasonable steps to getting used to your new reality.
