There are events that make a person think about their life and make a decision to change something about it. However, it is not necessary for something terrible to happen for you to decide to make more or less changes in your life. A new beginning is sometimes desirable even when nothing bothers us.
According to psychologist Sean Grover, you will recognize the right moment for change by the following signs:
1. Your life lacks joy and excitement, and your days are depressingly predictable. It seems to you that you are trapped in a boring routine in which every day is the same and you have nothing to look forward to;
2. You suffer from chronic stress and even very simple tasks are difficult for you. You can’t force yourself to clean the apartment, and going to friends and relatives seems like a walk to the gallows;
3 . You are constantly disappointed. Things never go the way you planned, which is why the whole world seems to have conspired against you.
If you recognize yourself in these signs, it’s time to make some change in your life. Before you resign, however, keep in mind that not every change is good in itself, but you need to think in detail about your plans for the future before you make it. In such situations, it is not bad to seek the advice of a therapist, mentor, or some other person you trust.
It is important that your change includes not only a change in your environment, whether you are moving or changing jobs, for example, but also a change in your behavior and thinking. Only when we work on ourselves can we expect positive results from our decisions.
If you do not know what you need to change in your life, we advise you to do an interesting thought experiment. Imagine yourself in the future saying the following sentence: “Thank God, I decided to ________ 20 years ago.“
This sentence will stimulate you to think carefully about how to fill in the blanks in it and discover what is really important in your life.
