Adapting to Change

People resist change because they believe they will lose something of value or fear they will not be able to adapt to the new way. If it is a significant change to their daily routine, it can be deeply emotional because it threatens their level of safety and security – “their comfort zone“.

Adjusting to change can be difficult, as even positive life transitions tend to cause some stress. Over the course of a lifetime, a person can expect to experience a significant amount of change.

Some of these changes, such as marriages, births, and new jobs, are generally positive, although they may be accompanied by their own unique stressors.

Other major life transitions, such as moving, retirement, or entering the “empty nest” phase of life may cause a significant amount of stress. Those who find themselves experiencing difficulty coping with life transitions may find it helpful to speak to a therapist in order to become better able to adjust to changes they cannot control.
