Sometimes we humans don’t like the change we’ve encountered, whether it’s a loved one passing, a lost job, or a lost opportunity. As Neale Donald Walsch notes, "Most of us have experienced events which we have called, when they were happening, the worst moments of our lives, only to find as time went by that what occurred was one of the best things that ever happened to us." These changes can feel absolutely devastating. We may ask “Why me?” and “How could this happen?” and feel that “this is a nightmare, this is not real” when it seems like our world has flipped upside down.

If you're ready to take a closer look at the deep issues of change and how to deal with them, check out When Everything Changes, Change Everything.
