The French philosopher, Henri Bergson, once said that, “To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly.”
Change is unavoidable, continuous, and is occurring all the time.
Our country changes, our city changes, our neighborhood changes, our family changes, and we as individuals change. Sometimes it may not be perceptible by someone on the outside.
But, we know ourselves better than anyone else when we have changed.
Our political views may have changed, our attitudes may have changed, our appearances may have changed, and even our faculties may have changed.
The term change itself has an even deeper significant when it is in reference to a change in behavior that represents coming to a fork in the road and having to choose one direction or another. If you’re dissatisfied with your present state and want to change, that is significant.
If you are dissatisfied with your career; if you’re dissatisfied with your marriage or other important relationships; if you’re dissatisfied with your lifestyle; or if you’re dissatisfied with your career; a major change may be necessary. A desire to change and a willingness to do so is essential. No one can change you or your situation. It has to begin with you. It has to begin inside.
1. Some people continue to change jobs, mate, and friends, but never think of changing themselves. Don’t become that person. If you feel that you are stuck in a rut and is seriously desirous of making a change in your life, don’t hesitate to seek professional help.
If you don’t have a close friend who has your best interest at heart, then find a therapist that you can trust and establish a good working relationship with that particular person.
2. Be willing to take your therapist’s recommendations seriously. Just talking about your problem will not bring about the change you need. You must be willing to do homework between the sessions and talk about your efforts and experiences when you return to the session. Most people do not change because willingness to make the effort is lacking.
3. Think about change as taking control your life. Get off of the roller coaster ride where you are allowing others to affect your emotional level by what they say or do. It is about making the decision to become that person you want to be, to begin taking the necessary steps in that direction, and to resolve to continue to grow the rest of your life
