It’s time for another “Magic 8-Ball” episode! AKA, where we shake up the nearly 200 episodes we’ve released in the past two years, and the one that rises to the surface has a message that you needed to hear today.
Today’s episode is a side chat from September 2018 about the grief of transitions. It’s one of my (Rachel’s) favorite episodes we’ve ever done, and very relevant to what we’re all experiencing right now. Here’s what I said when we first published this one:
Hello from the other side … of 30.
It’s been a month since I left my 20s, and I’m (Rachel) honestly still processing this milestone. I didn’t expect it to bring up so much grief — anger, frustration, sadness, and waves of anxiety and depression.
And while I’ve been riding those waves, it’s become obvious that a lot of people around me are also battling that same current, just for different reasons.
So, this mutual experience got me thinking about big life transitions. What do they have in common? How do we ride them out? Why are they so emotional?
In this Side Chat, we’re talking about:
- What counts as a transition (that might not have occurred to you).
- Why all transitions always come with grief, even when they’re happy.
- The true purpose of grief, and how to let yourself feel the deep emotions of a transition phase, without bottling them up.
- Why you don’t need to try to understand your feelings about the transition you’re in.
- The difference between grief and depression.
- How you can use the often-chaotic emotions of a transition to help catapult you forward in life.
After you’ve listened, leave a comment below to let us know how this take on transitions resonated with you!
