we tend to view life as a series of controllable events within the boundaries we shape. But as time goes on, we begin to realize the truth of life: change is inevitable. Life brings us insurmountable challenges. These curveballs sometimes put more pressure on us than they should. But the truth is that when we are able to overcome change, we know the most about ourselves. Understanding yourself can promote growth. Growth is the best part of life, because we grow into a new, different (and hopefully better) person. In the following slides, you will learn about some of the typical changes that most people experience in their lives and how to best cope with the major challenges in their lives.

1. According to psychologist Daniel Levinson's "seasons of a man's life theory", reaching a milestone age, adults will experience significant changes in the process of aging. From the age of 22 to 28, adults begin to choose their lifestyle, friends and work. The blooming of personality makes us the people we want to be. Next, the 30-year transition period is about to begin. We began to slow down, adjust the structure of our lives, and find the rules and balance in our daily work. Between the ages of 33 and 40, we find ourselves part of society and addicted to the greater interests of our entire culture. Most adults find themselves settled at this stage. The middle-aged transition (40-45 years old) takes place in the next. This stage usually makes people question the direction and meaning of life. Middle age (45-50) is the most stressful time, because we find that looking at how many years we've lived, rather than the remaining years, and the pre retirement work list. No matter how old you find yourself, it's important to recognize that these developments have the ability to increase stress. As human beings, it is very difficult for us to cope with changes. These development milestones have created changes in our life. When you find yourself in transition, remember that you are changing. Enjoy the process, make the most of what you can offer in your current life, and live through the waves of life.

2. Change friendship, laugh with friends, experience life together, love together is an essential part of life. It has been found that for a healthy life as a whole, people to people connections are as important as food and shelter. However, friends come and go. Some people will stay in your life for a short time, such as teammates or college fraternity, some people will withstand the storm and stay with you forever. There is a healthy acceptance space in relationships, and sometimes it's something you have to do to let go in order to continue to make room for new growth. Although this change is difficult, accepting and letting go is a process in life, sometimes it teaches us how to become more adaptive. When you find the time for friendship, don't be afraid to let go of the hand you have been holding. Let go, you are more willing to find new opportunities and meet your needs in friendship than those who no longer help you grow.

three. As most of us know, fame from the spotlight is fleeting. Take athletes for example. Most of the most successful athletes play sports in their youth and adolescence. Many people even have the opportunity to play in University, making their four years in University full of team participation, goals, motivation and determination. When you come out of this stage (whether you are an athlete or not), it's perfectly normal to experience sadness, loss and a transition period. Your identity has changed because a large part of who you used to be has been taken away. It's important to understand that the skills and attributes that make you successful in sports, career or hobbies can be used elsewhere. Any change in self-identity can fully understand the sadness and even depression that accompanies such a huge change in life. Be sure to find activities that make you feel the same as your sports or work. Whether it's the Office Sports League, singing karaoke at your favorite bar, or volunteering for the next fundraiser at your child's school, you need to find activities that satisfy you, but they don't require you to be the center of attention. This reduces the difficulty of this change and helps you rebalance yourself.

4. Moving to a new place has the same impact whether you move to a house on the street or a city across the country. Moving is stressful because there are so many unknowns. The simplest tasks, such as shopping and refuelling, become daunting because they are new, and driving new things increases your discomfort. Instead of seeing an action as a terrible change, accept the challenge. When you are not comfortable, you have the opportunity to understand yourself and get the most growth. Think of this as a way to add a whole new value to your knowledge base. You have the opportunity to try new restaurants, explore new places, find yourself. Enjoy it and realize that these changes are temporary - you'll soon get used to and feel settled in new cities and homes.

5. It is very difficult to start a new job
work conversion. Even if you are a person who leaves your company or recruiters, you will feel anxious and stressed and become a "new person". In the working environment, the social system has been established with who is responsible, synchronous personality and established boundaries of people. It's hard to be a new kid on the block just for these reasons. But when you understand the components of a new job, you also become part of the new work environment. So enjoy the process. Because as time goes on, there will be a new "new kid" and you will find the right place in the system.

6. Injury isChanges that are difficult to overcome at any age. No matter how or where you get hurt, from that moment on, all bets on your daily training in the gym will be cancelled. When working with patients with brain injury in a rehabilitation environment, you often see a sense of frustration with the body's ability to return to normal. Many patients end up depressed because their recovery and physical ability are not as fast as they want. However, it is important to recognize the slow and stable performance in the recovery process. Obviously, listening to your body is the most important part of recovering from injury. Many of my patients keep a diary to record their recovery process, because in bad days, when your knees can't let you walk that long, or your shoulders are still sore, you can take out your performance diary. Sometimes, there's evidence that you've made progress, and that's what keeps the recovery going.

7. Most weight loss occurs in a slow period of time. To lose weight, you need to change your mind, behavior and expectation to succeed. In the field of psychology, change is attributed to a theory called change stage model. It points out that people operate in five stages of change - think ahead, think, act, sustain and recur. At each stage, people will slowly shift from ignoring what they want to change to preparing for it and then acting on it. With weight loss, whether it's pregnancy weight, a nasty holiday weight, or a weight you haven't lost in the last five to 10 pounds, it's best to realize that you've controlled the changes you need to make. Once you establish a sense of control and feel in control of your mind, your body will slowly follow. When you change your mind from "I can't do it" to "a little at a time," you may see yourself gradually making changes. And it's easier to stick to your weight loss goals when you use positive self talk. So let the words "I rock" and "I'm fine" go around in your head.

8. Making room in the family is something that most people will encounter in their lives. Whether it is through birth, marriage, in laws or adopted close friends, most family units will be provided with external procedures. Sometimes it's exciting to add a new sibling to your family, but sometimes you find yourself less excited about your future in laws. When you're worried about the growth of another family member, think about where it comes from. We are all worried about being lost in the shuffle of life, we are all looking for our own place. You can control this by adding chairs, creating space, and taking advantage of new additions to set aside special time so you can build a personal relationship. This creates a space that still belongs to you and makes the other person feel needed and needed. Don't worry, you're your own, so make room at the table and realize that while it's a change, it's still a good thing.

9. The process of constantly changing and letting go. White hair, wrinkles, weight gain and slower pace of life make it hard for us to accept the position that aging brings us. It's no secret that everyone will change with age, but your age will change the world. Aging is beyond human control. However, some parts can be controlled. For example, saving pensions, planning exciting travel, setting achievable and easy to achieve goals all contribute to the ageing process. Many times, people plan their lives before they retire, only to find that stroke or physical illness has changed their vision and expectations for the future. You never know what life will bring you, so seize the opportunity. It's important to realize that things don't have to be easy. Now is the best time to do anything.

10. Changing roles in life is tricky. Some people change from single to married, turning their identity into two units. Some people get used to being parents and get new names like mom and dad. There are also people who take on the role of caring for elderly parents, who used to care for them. This se role transition is always difficult. If a mother tells you it's not a difficult transformation, she doesn't reveal every part of the transformation that people experience as parents. When we shift from focusing on ourselves to focusing on the outside, even the best relationships can change our lives. When you get new responsibilities in your life, relax with yourself. Make time for you and don't feel guilty if you need a coffee break with your new boyfriend or go shopping in the grocery store without kids. In addition to intimacy, time will make you more appreciative of the people in your life and bring back some independence that you may lose by playing this new role in your life.

11. The process of facing the death and sadness of our loved ones is one of the most difficult experiences in our life. Everyone loses their parents, spouse, friends or family at some time. The sadness and loss model provides five stages that we experience after the death of a loved one. These stages - denial, anger, frustration, bargaining and acceptance - can occur simultaneously or individually. They don't necessarily happen to everyone, but they are important when you experience losing someone special. Everyone deals with grief and loss differently, which is why you may encounter difficulties in the process, and your family or friends may react differently. Love yourself and find a good therapist to discuss your loss with you. There is no right or wrong in grief. This process is different for everyone; some find it easy to keep in touch with others, some need to grieve alone. The most important thing is to really feel what you've done. Pain will be incredibly difficult, but in this defeat, real feelings can make you love yourself.
