Surviving a Move during an Emotional Crisis
There are many reasons behind every decision to move. Some people move to find a better career while others simply want to experience a new atmosphere. Sadly, not all reasons are for the better. There are times when one finds the need to move because of a major life change such as divorce or death of a loved one. If you're in the same situation, here are some tips you can consider to get you through a very challenging move. Keep in mind that you're not just moving into a new home, you are also moving into a new chapter in your life. Tips to Manage a Move After a Loss: On a typical move, you are required to discard as much items you can so you can reduce the moving costs. But this may not be applicable if you are moving after a loved one's death. There are some things we couldn't let go because they give us comfort when everything seems to fall apart. Move the things that you think may help you get through, even if it costs extra to ship the boxes. After a Divorce: Don't make any rash decisions when it comes to sorting out stuff. Just because an item reminds you of your ex-husband doesn't mean you have to throw it away. Before you discard anything, think if it's something you can really live without. If throwing all those stuff can make you feel a lot better, then sell or donate them by all means. Moving at the best and worst time is always physically and emotionally challenging. Rest once in awhile and allow yourself to breathe, think or maybe cry-do what you have to do to get through. A good friend by your side can also be a great help.
