The words "struggle" and "change" are difficult ones for many of us. For some, those words can be accompanied by feelings of fear or hopelessness. Others may experience a strange sense of guilt, believing these feelings to be a sign of weakness in themselves. However, these thoughts and emotions do not have to be as scary or lonely when we recognize that we all encounter struggles and change at different times in our lives!
We have all experienced stress or anxiety resulting from changes in life cir****stances - relationships, careers, illness and death in addition to so many others. Sometimes, we are too busy with life to even recognize our feelings. Other times, it immediately consumes every aspect of our lives.
Yet as painful as it may seem at the time, we should always remember that it is through life's struggles that we recognize both the strength that we have - as well as the strength that we need - in our lives.
