Change – a challenge or a gift?

Change – a challenge or a gift?

We are living in times of permanent change, in the collective, but also within us, the individuals. Since the Corona Lockdowns and other measurements dictated by the states all over the world, nothing has remained the same as before, neither in the outside world, nor in the inside world. 

Outside, many procedures were set into law which before no one would ever have thought possible. Inside, the induced fear and the heavy obligations to succumb to whatever was domanded, also in the case of missing evidence and reason, was a huge challenge to literally all humans on earth with which everyone was confronted and asked to find a way to handle it.

But obviously, apart from Corona we humans are confronted with innumerable changes of all sorts. Actually, if change didn’t exist, nothing would happen, everything would stand still, the eternal death. That certainly is not compatible with life. Change is absolutely nedessary, but more often than not felt like something heavy to bear and to adaprt to. We might be fearful of change or looking forward to it, depending on our character structure and also on the moment in our lives and what the change is about.

In the last two sessionss of WOMEN MATTERS we discuss change, how it came about in our lives, how we see it, how we cope with it and when it can become a gift despite all the negatively perceived aspects. More often than not we share our personal opinions, but even more our personal stories with the intention to inspire you to think about this topic and how it is playing out for you.

The conversations took place in March, 2023

Sorry not yet done!

If you like to contribute by writing them up, we would be very pleased.
