They say the first few years of your life are the foundation of a child’s (mental) health, developments, achievements, happiness and anything life has to offer.
The first 5 years of my life I have moved 4 countries and 3 cities in the last country.
Needles to say, my childhood evolved around “change”.
When I started high school, I choose the school which was nearby my house. Even though I knew it only offers the first 3 years of the education. I knew I would have to CHANGE school again after that period.
When I started university, I CHANGED my studies within 3 months.
After graduation, I CHANGED country to accept a job abroad.
I knew the job would require me to travel, plus I also wanted to make sure I would be in the Netherlands at least every 2nd month. So there was also quite a bit of CHANGE in environment.
I have recently CHANGED my job for the 4th time.
Naturally I have never allowed myself to feel too attached with an environment, routine or people.
I was fine with the lifestyle, but as I am getting to a more mature age, I am naturally also getting more tired.
Time to make the last change for at least the next few years!
Both my boyfriend and I agree that it is time to move to a house which is bigger and newer and nicer.
Our current situation wouldn’t allow us to move to another location. We would both like a quieter, smaller town.
Change, for him, doesn’t come as easy as for me.
He is not unhappy in his job. He is not uncomfortable in the house.
So, he took his time with searching for a new job. I felt the stress all over again which I felt when I searched for my job.
Finally, we’re there, in the last phase.
Nothing is 100%, but I am counting on that he will get a good offer so he can resign from his current job.
Then finally, 2018 could be last year of large changes.
There is one more change I would like and is needed as well: change to a new
How do you deal with changes?
