Is It Too Late to Start Over?

Change is a part of life; no one remains the same throughout life. Most people evolve and grow as they age. They can also decide to make lifestyle changes that impact their lives during their evolution. People can change no matter how old they are.

Is Changing Hard?

Anytime you start something new, there are challenges. Instead of focusing on the potential difficulties, envision the rewards. The path to a new hobby, career, or relationship can start by taking inventory of your life.

Take a moment and assess your life. Is there something not correct or missing? You can feel unhappy or unsatisfied with your life without ever focusing on the causes. Many people feel empty or unfulfilled most of their lives, but they don’t change because it’s easier to live with unhappiness than to challenge themselves to make a change.

The path of least resistance is uncomplicated. You can blame others, your environment, anything, or anyone for where you are in your career or personal life. Taking attention away from your actions or lack of action is effortless unless you consider the time it takes to make excuses. Maybe you feel you didn’t have enough support in your life, and that’s why you can’t change.

However, there’s a way to learn how to build self-confidence and heal from past trauma: therapy. Therapy for past trauma, mental health issues, or substance addiction disorders can guide you to understand why you experience emotions like anxiety or depression. Once you learn healthy coping skills, you may feel encouraged to take the next step to change your life.

What Motivates Change?

You will experience various events, meet new people, and shift how you think throughout your life. Change is inevitable because you can rethink how you feel or view relationships, jobs, or core values as you mature. If something is important to you, somehow, you find a way to make it a part of your life.

A problem with asking what motivates change is that your motivation comes from within yourself. You can’t rely on others to tell you what you should change or how you can change. The desire for something different is all you.

How Can I Change?

Nothing will be different if you don’t know what you think needs to be changed. Write down a list of what you want to change and zero in on specifics. For example, don’t say you want to lose weight. Instead, write down how much you want to lose and give yourself milestones along the path to lose a specific amount by a certain date.

Another step toward where you want to go in life is to get out of your head. Don’t count yourself out because of your age, gender, education level, or location. Instead, strive for what you want and block out negativity. If you need help, ask a loved one to help you or talk with a therapist.

The phrase “it’s never too late to change” is accurate. Change is inevitable as you grow older. You aren’t the same person you were five years ago. The choice is yours to embrace change if you’re unhappy, in a rut, or bored. Find a therapist who can encourage you and help you find the change you want.
