Accepting Change: Ways To Embrace And Accept Change In Your Life

Life can be challenging, and it can drastically alter in a matter of seconds. While some of us are fortunate enough to understand the context of this significant change, many people still find it difficult to accept and acclimate to it.

The fact that life is inextricably linked to change does not alter its perception. Whether it results from our choices or factors outside of our control, it can be terrifying when we are faced with something unexpected that requires us to change in order to move forward.

Take the example of Cassandra Stone, the main character of the novel BROKEN,” for instance. Being a former military operative who awoke from cryogenic sleep fifty years after the war, known as The Reckoning, she is the only one of three to survive both the process and the War. She stumbles upon a world that has survived and, in some ways, even thrived. She also realizes that she is not the dominant predator any longer. In this future, where many people have physical enhancements and access to modern technology, Cass is considered somewhat average because her genetics prevent her body from absorbing modern enhancements. However, despite these setbacks and hurdles, she keeps going. Slowly and painfully, she rebuilds herself from the ground up in a world where she is an outsider, an outcast. What else can she possibly do? Could Cass make a name for herself and regain back the reputation she once has? Purchase “Broken” from Amazon to learn more.

That being said, change can happen gradually or suddenly, depending on a variety of factors, such as one’s own development, external influences, technological advancements, societal changes, or natural progressions. However, it forces us to step outside of our comfort zones, offers us new chances for development and adaptation, and frequently forces us to reassess our decisions and priorities in the hopes of a better tomorrow.

Therefore, rather than resisting change, we must try to embrace it.

Here are some ways to help:

How To Embrace Change?

You might find yourself in peril as you prepare for forthcoming changes and evolution. It might appear that nothing is working and that there is nothing you can do to reverse what might occur. However, putting these suggestions into practice will assist you in accepting the changes in your past, present, and future!

Recognize That Change Is a Constant

Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher, noted that the natural world was constantly in motion. People grow older, form habits, and move forward. Even the rocks in a river cannot adhere to remain the same because of the water current and weather conditions. The only constant in life is change, and nobody is able to prevent it from occurring. Therefore, it is imperative to accept and embrace the change as it comes. Identify and acknowledge the changes and transformations you are going through, and take lessons from them.

Be Positive

A positive outlook on life can make it easier for you to handle challenges, demanding circumstances, and sudden changes. By being curious and committing to seeing the advantages and opportunities for learning in a situation rather than the drawbacks and challenges will help you gain the perspective needed and position yourself for proactive and deliberate action. So, try to see and notice the new possibilities whenever a change occurs. Maybe what you are or have been thinking is not the best course of action, and this change is all you need to make an impact and move forward in life.

Control What You Can

A lot of change can be challenging to handle at once. Determining what you can control is therefore preferable. Keep up with some of your current rituals and routines while attempting to manage or adapt to the change in stages. Maintain a strategy and make short-term but smart goals that you believe can help you in coping with change. You can also take inspiration from books such as “Broken,” and ask for assistance to have some more control over yourself as you make your way to accepting the change and move forward in life.

Celebrate Milestones

Appreciating yourself for making difficult changes and acknowledging your progress goes a long way. Give yourself a pat on the back when you reach a major or minor milestone, and never forget to acknowledge even the fact that you have made it this far. Even when you are not in the mood, realizing, looking back at the time, and celebrating your success for the things you might be thinking you cannot do or overcome can be a big relief and work as motivation and drive to achieve more in life. Therefore, do not ever sit back whenever you and someone achieve a milestone. Remember that a little appreciation can change the way you look at life and give you more confidence and hope to life a better life.

Be Resilient

There will always be some discomfort associated with changes. However, if you embrace this discomfort, face it head-on, dust yourself up, and discover new facets of who you are, you will grow stronger and wiser. Not just doing so will help you to build more resilient, but also allow you to gain more self-worth, confidence, and persistence, similar to Cassandra Stones. Adjusting to change can be challenging, but it is an essential step on the road to growth and fulfillment. Moreover, we can unlock our true potential and learn more about ourselves by embracing these uncomfortable moments. So let us embrace change in all its manifestations, whether it is about moving forward, sideways, or even backward, for it is in embracing change that we discover the beauty of life’s journey. However, if you have trouble adjusting to change, you might want to read BROKEN to embrace and learn from Cassandra’s journey as she reclaim her position amid the depressing change in the dystopian world.
