Life transitions may be occasions for joy and seen as positive, or may be experienced negatively, particularly if they are unexpected or dramatic. 

Some examples of life transitions include:

  • Adolescence
  • Beginning or ending a relationship
  • Marriage
  • Having a baby
  • Menopause
  • Losing or changing a job
  • Divorce
  • Retirement
  • Growing older
  • Accidents or serious illness

Accepting that change is a normal part of life, and learning skills that will enable you to express and work through emotions is achievable
