Once upon a time, an old Greek philosopher (Heraclitus) said, “The only thing that is constant is change.” Fast-forward to the present age and most people would not only agree with this maxim, they would probably notice that change is happening exponentially in our world.

But before we can learn to embrace a new reality, we must traverse the change process. Only by dealing with feelings of resistance, denial, and uncertainty can we finally accept the new reality in which we find ourselves.
