“The only thing constant is change.”
~ Heraclitus, Greek philosopher
You’re sick of waiting for the other shoe to drop.
There are changes on the horizon. Maybe there is a laundry list of things that will change. Or, maybe it’s one or two things. These could be big or small. Regardless of the size, however, there’s some apprehension that accompanies it. You find yourself playing the ‘what if’ game and exploring every possibility (somehow all negative) of life transitions ahead. Other times, you avoid thinking about these changes like the plague in the hopes that they will disappear if you don’t think about them. You feel overwhelmed, possibly unprepared for what’s ahead of you. You question if you’re going to rise up to everyone’s expectations. No matter what you do, it feels like you’re just not ready.
You don’t have to live with the apprehension or anxiety alone anymore.
