How well do you do with transition in your life? Three ways most people handle transition are the following: embrace the transition, ignore the transition, or run away from the transition. For example, many have embraced transition when the first baby came. The family made room for the new baby and restructured the time for the new member of their household. Another example is when a marriage is not doing well and a husband or wife will ignore or run away from the transition and the marriage is harmed.
