Do you feel the need for a career change but find yourself working toward it in fits and starts? Are you finding it difficult to leave the comfort and familiarity of your current job despite feeling unhappy?
These struggles are common for people in the early stages of their career transition. And that’s OK. Yes, it is important to have a career transition plan, and yes, we need outside support to implement that plan. But realistically, there will always be bumps along the road and times when we feel down about ourselves.
If you can relate to this, try not to be too hard on yourself! All change (even good change!) is stressful, and stress does not mean you aren’t handling it well. Major life transitions take many months to complete, but the good news is that you don’t have to handle it all at once. You can manage it one day at a time, and make patient progress toward your goals each day. You are stronger than you think!
