Not easy the change jobs. There are usually a lot of factors that come into play. Having experienced this in my household recently, there were many interesting lessons to learn and look back upon.
- This change affects everyone in the family, including growing teens. They need to understand how this change will affect them (of course) but in our situation, more to understand that this was the right change.
- Consideration was given to the question of "are you changing one set of stressors with another?" - lipstick on the same pig syndrome. Fortunately, not.
- Was this a change going to be a challenge? In fact, after thinking about it, it created energy and excitement and anticipation versus the dread of the current situation.
- Finally, could anything be done to rescue the old situation? Answer - NO.
