Rarely was I change ready in my younger years. I was often change fatigued and change resistant. Too much stress and change can leave one in a state of unofficial trauma and I use those words to denote those who are the walking wounded. There is a feeling of anxiety, bewilderment and confusion but life is still overall operational. And yes that was me for a good part of my 48 years here. So what happened?
I came to one day! I snapped out of it! I was not expecting it, it just happened. However, there were pre-conditions that helped me along. The pre-conditions of previous loss, sadness, self doubt and deep introspection. Change readiness can be born from resilience along with taking good care of yourself and finally deep self awareness.
