COPE Healing Tip of the Month
From COPE Clinical Director Amy Olshever, LCSW
The transitions of the earth’s seasons are filled with dynamic energies – the subtle shiftings, the visible changes, the feeling of anticipation, the curiosity about what will come to be. September 22 marks our transition into Fall. Similarly, we experience transitions in our lives. When adversity befalls us, we are thrown into an unplanned transition. The good news is that the force of life that spurs us on is resilient beyond imagination! With the support of others and a nurturing and caring approach toward ourselves we can keep our resilience strong as we move along a healing path to a renewed life. We like to have a certain level of structure and predictability in our daily lives, and we come to depend on that because it allows us to create order and routines and to function well within them. There is no prescribed time schedule for transition. Ultimately you do it in your own way and in your own time. If you feel stuck at a certain point and this is adding more distress to your life, then it is wise to get help with that. As you learn to live with your pain, your movement forward becomes stronger and stronger. You may have stalls and setbacks along the way but the option to start up again and carry on never expires. Have patience with your process… and yourself!
