Sometimes life can throw up a big wrench and change faster than we can possibly keep up.

When we were in the military, it seemed like we moved about every three years. When we received the orders, we said goodbye to all our friends, our church, and our home. We packed the children and dogs in the car and off we went to the new adventure. However, these changes were not always easy. Many times it was difficult helping the children to say goodbye to their friends, favorite extracurricular activities, teachers, schools and their home. Perhaps you have not had to experience of moving your children across country several times, however, you may have had to make some difficult changes in your life. These events cause your life to change sometimes for the good, sometimes bad, but you know that your life will be forever altered due to the change.

Below are some major life changes that can affect your emotions, thoughts and overall mental state:

  • Getting a divorce
  • Getting bullied
  • Moving away from extended family
  • Dealing with a serious medical illness
  • Caring for an aging parent
  • Blending a family/becoming a step-parent, adoptive parent, or birth parent
  • Starting a new job/ career changes
  • Going to college
  • Leaving home for the first time
  • Mid life crisis/ hormonal changes/ menopause
