Change is an inevitable part of life. We all must learn to endure and accept the natural changes in life. However, change can feel overwhelming and scary for those struggling with their mental health, addiction, or trauma. Learning to embrace change takes effort and patience. Here are a few thoughts to keep in mind as you work to embrace the change in your life. 


Calculate the Risk


Often we fear change because of the risk of failure. Change brings uncertainty and sometimes discomfort. If you find yourself fearing the change ahead of you, think through possible and probable scenarios. Does the fear of failure outweigh the possibility of success? Find the courage to embrace the uncertainty that comes with life. 


Desire to Grow


With change comes growth. If nothing changes, we stay the same as time moves forward. While this probably feels safe and comfortable, it will not lead you to the goals you are capable of reaching. When you feel most intimidated by potential change, remember your desire to grow and what could potentially be ahead of you.


It Is How You Fail Not If You Fail


We all fail. We try new things, and sometimes they just simply do not work out. That does not mean the change was not beneficial or worthwhile. We learn so much when we step outside of our comfort zones. Do not fear failure; fear not trying. Learn from your failure, modify your goals, and use everything you have learned. 


Find Your Balance


Embracing change can be difficult and stressful. Change has the potential to make us anxious, stressed, and worried. Finding the balance between your comfort zone and your desire for change is the key to maintaining your mental health and overall well-being. 


Learning to embrace change is a powerful tool to maintaining mental health and overall well-being. Change is inevitable. Learning to embrace and grow with your change can be challenging, but it is possible. If you struggle with mental health issues or addiction, change can feel debilitating. You may not even know where or how to begin to work through that fear.
