The Challenges of Transition

There are many types of transition: in work, geography, relationships, life-stage… and often many of them happen together! 

It can be a vulnerable time for self-esteem. As we leave behind the old familiar landscape, we often leave behind the “markers” that defined our relationship with ourselves. For example, when we leave an old job, we may leave old friends and the sense of connection they gave us. Or a manager may have to give back that company car that defined their success. 

When we get to the other bank of the river, there will be new markers of success and fulfilment. But when we are crossing the river and trying to navigate the currents, our only ally our self-worth i.e. a sense of unconditional friendship with ourselves.
