7 Ways to Deal with a Move ...


Take it from someone who has moved 13 times in 23 years, there are ways to deal with a move.

Moving can be scary and may seem unfair, especially if you have no say in the matter.

Considering that I’m basically a pro at moving by now, here are some ways to deal with a move that have helped me.

1. Know Everything Will Be OK

One of the best ways to deal with a move is to rest assured that everything is going to be OK.

Even if it feels like your life is coming to an end and you don’t know how to handle all the emotions, I promise you that everything will be OK … everything happens for a reason.

Think of this new move as a new chapter of your exciting and beautiful life!

2. Be Open for Change

Acceptance is key;

be open for the change.

Sitting in your room pouting or yelling at your parents or complaining about the situation will not do any good.

It can seem scary to accept a new change in your life, especially if you’ve been living in the same place for years.

Coach yourself through the process and even if you need to lie to yourself at first, tell yourself you’re ready and willing for a new change.

3. Give Yourself Time to Grieve

Just like at the end of any relationship, give your heart some time to grieve and cry out all of your roller coaster emotions.

Breaking up with a boyfriend, school, friend, or even home can be tough … trust me, I know.

I’ve been there, done that several times.

Allow your emotions to feel – once it’s out of your system, you will feel better.

4. Keep in Contact with Friends

Saying goodbye to friends will be the most challenging part of moving.

But just because you’re moving doesn’t mean you can no longer talk with your friends!

It just means you’ll now have friends in a different state or town.

Keeping connections with friends will give you the peace of mind you’ll be seeking to move forward to your new home.
