Once upon a time, I resisted change. Then I divorced my husband.

For a long time I held the belief that change was a natural part of life and that I rolled with it.

The truth is I avoided change, or at least meaningful change. Yes, my kids changed class every year, and sometimes schools, they dropped activities and took up new ones, all of which meant changes to my routine. I changed jobs a couple of times but I was avoiding the change that would bring me peace and joy.

My marriage was in crisis but I ignored that fact because doing otherwise felt way too hard.

Until it suddenly wasn’t, I became anxious and  depressed to the point of agoraphobia and suicidal ideation. I hit rock bottom. 

Change was the only way out.  I decided to divorce my husband. That was the most difficult and challenging time of my life. With the help of my journal I found my way through it to happiness.

Change is part of life.

That doesn’t mean it always easy to deal with.

Or that you won’t resist the changes you so desperately want to make. 

This book of journal prompts is designed to make change easier for you, to help you find where any resistance you may feel lies and to work through the thoughts and beliefs behind it.

The first chapter delves into how you deal with change, what has  worked well for you and what to avoid so that you can really know yourself and make your planned changes in a way that suits you.

You will find chapters on dealing with planned change, unexpected change, unexpected outcomes of planned changes,  processing emotional and physical changes as well as developing resilience.

 

Many of you will know that I work part-time teaching Maths. Last summer, I was summoned to a meeting where I was told that there would be major changes to my department. This meant I  would  lose my classroom. The room I had spent countless hours  in building up children’s confidence in Maths, giving them tools and methods they could use to support them throughout their lives. I had carefully planned and created displays that would enhance their learning.  All of this was being taken away.

There had been no inkling that such a change was afoot and I was devastated. My superior had a vision for the spaces myself and my colleague used but hadn’t been able to articulate that vision in a way that I could see it too.

So I did what I always do. I turned to my journal and began to write. I asked myself questions about why I felt so deeply about the impending change, what it meant for me and the effect it had emotionally and physically. I asked myself questions that helped me work through how I could help myself deal with the change.

My journaling also gave me the confidence to go to meetings with my superior and others and ask for clarification and to propose different solutions  that would have less impact on all involved but still keep the overall vision intact. 

Many of the prompts I used to help me through this change can be found in the chapter on unexpected change.

So if change is on the horizon for you and you want to learn to deal with it effectively, to make it easier for you and those around you then you need Meeting Resistance.

Or if you are determined that 2024 is the year you will stick to your resolutions Meeting Resistance will guide you gently to finding out how to make the changes you want in the way you want and help you deal with any setbacks and develop the resilience to keep moving forward.
