Ask yourself how you initially responded to an unexpected change in your life – was it with surprise, fear, grief, anger? Chances are good that the first response was a negative reaction. But it is the second or eventual response that counts – the reframe of the loss as a gain. In others, that initial response may look like resistance to change; remember that after their reactive phase comes the creative phase. This is where you can help them and yourself choose a response that is constructive. (See Woodward & Buckholz above)
