Change is inevitable. Through the darkest corners of the universe, in the brightest places on earth, change is always right around the corner. While it may seem easier to stay in the comfort of a well-kept routine, the tides of change will eventually prevail.

There is no easy way to deal with change. A lot of the time, change comes at the most unexpected times. It can be a simple aspect, such as a small change in your work schedule, or a major change, like going to a new school.

Getting accustomed to change is often difficult, especially when life seemed so simple before. It can be easy to get used to a daily routine and become attached to old traditions. However, turning away from change doesn’t help in the end– life is constantly changing around us, whether we like it or not. 

There are some things that we just can’t control, no matter how hard we try. Constantly worrying and being anxious over a situation that can’t be controlled will not change anything. Sometimes, it feels natural to fall into a routine of obsessing and overthinking, even when there is no reason to keep on going with that endless cycle. 

Constant overthinking can take away from the present. Rather than staying in the moment, you can end up spending too much time in your own head. It’s difficult to stop worrying about change, especially when dealing with a problem you can’t completely control. But letting the situation play itself out can have a very positive effect on mental health.

Of course, it is not easy to sit back and put anxiety on hold. Still, practicing self-care and taking time to reflect can help you cope with change. An important thing to remember is that asking for help is always a good idea.

Even when change seems like an impossible obstacle to overcome, there is always a way through. Coping with anxiety and stress is not an easy task, but prioritizing your mental health will help you grow as a person and welcome change.
