Life Changes and Challenges

Sometimes we choose a life change and sometimes we don't and life just throws them at us anyway.  Big big changes AND small changes that can cause difficulty and for each person this is different.

Some examples of changes that can cause difficulty in adjusting include:
-Becoming single
-A new life style
-A loss of ability to do a much loved hobby
-The failure of a business venture
-Moving house or town
-Changing jobs
-Moving out of a long term career
-Moving INTO a new career
-Reaching an age milestone
-Failure of exams
-Retirement
-Losing a job
-Starting a family
-Getting an illness
-A death in the family or of a friend
-The loss of a pet
-Kids leaving home or changing schools or even just entering a new lfe stage
-Loss of ability
-A new partner
Changes in feelings:
-Sudden unfulfilment of job or career
-A feeling of discontent in a relationship
-A dull feeling of general life unfulfillment
-Change in feelings towards family members
-Change in feelings towards colleagues

This is not a complete list.  This is just a list of some of the issues that can cause difficulties and also can cause mental health problems if left to long without solving.
