We tend to see life as a series of events that are controllable and within the limits that we shape. But over time we begin to realize the truth about life: change is inevitable. Life throws us challenges that are difficult to overcome. These circumstances sometimes stress us much more than they should. But the truth is that when we are equipped to overcome change, we learn more about ourselves … Although this wisdom is usually provided by years and experiences.
Learning about ourselves promotes personal growth. The growth is the best part of being human, because we become a new and different person (and with better luck) regardless of how old you are. Next, we are going to talk about some typical changes that most people experience in life when they have a birthday.
Adults experience significant developmental changes during the aging process. Between the ages of 22 and 28, adults begin to make decisions about their lifestyle, friends, and work. Personality flourishes and we become what we want to be in society . This is followed by the 30-year transition. We begin to slow down and structure our lives, finding routine and balance in the daily routine.
Between the ages of 33 and 40 we find ourselves forming part of society and immersing ourselves in the greater good of our culture in general . Most adults are settled during this phase. The midlife transition (40-45 years) happens next. This phase usually makes people question direction and meaning in life.
Middle adulthood (ages 45-50) can create the most stress as we find ourselves looking at how many years we’ve lived compared to how many years we have left and what’s on the wish list before retirement . Regardless of your age, it is important to recognize that each of these developmental changes has the ability to increase stress.
As humans, we have a hard time coping with change, and these developmental milestones create change throughout our lives. When you are in transition, remember that you are in change. Although changes can give you some anxiety, it is better to learn to face them although sometimes they also bring fear to the mind.
The ideal is to enjoy the process, make the most of everything that your current stage of life has to offer, and overcome the wave of life. It is important to recognize that each of these developmental changes has the ability to increase stress . As humans, we have a hard time coping with change, and these developmental milestones create change throughout our lives.
The secret is in your perception
The secret is in your perception of things and of life. If you perceive that the events in your life are negative and that you cannot do anything to change them, it is more than likely that things will eventually go wrong for you. It is important that you perceive life as a gift, that you learn to appreciate the good things that are happening to you at each stage of your life and that the mistakes you have made, that remain in anecdotes that help you grow and realize how to improve in the future.
Do not waste time on trivial things, or in discussions, nor do you give your time to people who do not bring you emotional well-being. You deserve to live in harmony with yourself and with the people around you and one way to achieve this is by changing your perfection of life for the better.
