“Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.” – Eckhart Tolle
Change is always scary and generally an emotional experience. I have found in life that one of the best ways to maneuver through a situation is to learn as much as you can about the process and understand that you are not powerless. You get to make choices. You get to choose how you respond to a specific situation, how you react to a hurtful conversation, and even whether you are going to contribute to conflict or promote peace and stability. This is not to say you have the power to control everything, but you always have the power to control something. Learning that is a step towards healing and dealing with the many seasons of life.
