Transitions life coaching focuses on how to successfully cope with the unplanned transitions we are faced with in our lives. The only thing constant about life is growth and change. Every living thing either grows or it dies.
We are aware of many of the transitions of life, meaning that they are anticipated and occur in the same phases of everyone's lives.
But, what are we to do about the ones that we don't see coming?
Some of us thrive while living out our life's script as we have written them. But, many of us have experiences where our lives go off script in major, life altering, unforeseen ways.
Yet, we still must cope and function in a world and a new life that we do not recognize. There are no limits to the ways in which people find themselves in the midst of unplanned transitions for which they are utterly unprepared.
Divorce, illness, death, financial hardships, single parenting, dating again after decades of marriage, dating as single parents and transitioning from one stage of life to the next all challenge our resources.
Though the particulars may vary wildly, the experience of the person in transition is pretty universal. Shock. Panic. Guilt. Self doubt and self reproach. Fear. Suddenly, they are suspended mid-air with no safety net.
It is common for people to ask, "Why me?" The answer is a very unsatisfying, "Why not?" However, people are incredibly resilient.
Sometimes it's enough to perform even the most basic tasks. Breathe in, breathe out, repeat. It's okay to just go through the motions of living in the immediate aftermath of catastrophic loss.
Life doesn't wait for anyone while they struggle to get a grip on it. It moves forward, as must we.
Needing one another is part of the human condition. It is one of the most beautiful and moving parts of the human experience.
We require the love, support and friendship of one another for our very survival. As infants, we are entirely dependent upon our parents to meet our every need.
As adults, there are many things that we can do for ourselves, but we cannot get through life alone. When we give to others in their time of need, it heals us as much as it heals them.
But, the one, clear constant is that we can't do it alone. In the end, we all get by with a little help from our friends.
