Not every Fresh Start comes about because we want it. Sure, most do. We anticipate New Year's Resolutions. We get excited about moving to a new place or starting a new job. But sometimes, this entire process of starting over can feel more negative than positive. We might be leaving someplace where we’d rather stay. Even if the outcome is desired, such as a divorce, there are many memories and baggage to sort through. The new beginning which follows can feel more overwhelming than exciting.
So, how do you deal with these situations without losing your sanity? How do you do it in such a way as to take something positive away from the experience?
The answer isn’t as complicated as you might think. No, it’s not simply a matter of a fresh mindset, though this can help. Sometimes your endings will take a little more work than this to shift them into new beginnings. Let’s find out how.
