No matter how you slice it: change is hard. It’s constant, unrelenting, and usually happens whether we are ready for it or not.
According to this study, we also have a tendency to underestimate the amount of change we will go through in the future. In fact, Daniel T. Gilbert, a psychologist at Harvard explains how we get it so wrong:
“What we never seem to realize is that our future selves will look back and think the very same thing about us. At every age we think we’re having the last laugh, and at every age we’re wrong.”
So, what can we take away? For starters, we need to relax and not look at change as a negative.
Whether you’re dealing with people changing, moving to a new city, or simply trying to develop better habits for yourself, adjusting to these new realities will never be easy. Only time, effort and dedication will allow you to get to that next stage of life. It’s always a challenge, but it does get easier.
