Handling the challenges of change
If you feel overwhelmed by change, you’re among a large piece of the population. Change can feel isolating, infuriating, and seemingly impossible to deal with.
The reality is that change tends to be particularly difficult when you don’t have an understanding of what needs to change, you don’t have the skills or knowledge to change it, or you lack awareness of why the change is actually needed.

Change is inevitable in life. Graduating students are certain to experience some changes in life, whether they continue their education or go straight to working, they will encounter changes in the environment and the people around them, as well as changes in scheduling.
Change invites new possibilities, opportunities, and challenges, which can be both exciting and scary. While it is hard to predict and prepare for changes, being able to handle change is a great feature that should not be ignored.
