Acceptance and Communication
Everyone has encountered an individual who claims to have all the answers. But the truth is, nobody knows everything. Accepting that change is happening is a choice. Refusing change can lead to more pain for the individual digging in their heels. There will always be people you disagree with, everyone has to cope with the opinions of others as they navigate life.
Communicating with friends or within a support group can be helpful. But if you find yourself leaving these conversations upset, that the conversations are primarily filled with individuals venting frustration, you may want to try to steer the discussion toward topics that are more hopeful. Sharing only negative thoughts can be very upsetting. Instead, together, you and your support system can help each other cope and figure things out.
