Changes, are a thing, that's happening. (Reflecting on Transitions)

To me, anyway. I'm just making this thread to talk a little bit about what's going on in my personal (professional?) life, so if this is of little interest to you, feel free to move on. I'm really just reflecting on the situation because I feel..."strange" about it, and writing things helps me work out my thoughts. And maybe what reflections I do write may have relevance to a similar situation one (or more) of you might be going through. This is the only disclaimer, so if you read any further, I assume you're doing so because this subject matter catches your attention. After three months of applying at various funeral homes in four different cities, I was recently offered my first position as an apprentice since I graduated college. It was a real surpise since this was from a home I applied to back in June, who didn't happen to be hiring at the time. Plus I had previously interviewed with four other places that each turned me down, so that put a slight damper on my confidence. Regardless, I put in my two weeks notice at my current job yesterday, so now that plans are in motion i'm feeling pretty excited/nervous about the new opportunity i'm presented with. I have two years worth of education to back me up, but I admit, i'm still unsure of what to expect. Practical application can often vary from what's taught in a classroom, and this is something i've often been told from people who actually work in the business already. But there's a bit more to it, I also feel...strange, in that I feel like i'm transitioning to a different stage or chapter in my life. The electrical company I work for now (and will be leaving shortly) never really meant much to me, personally. It was...unfulfilling, not of much interest to me. However, it was my first job, and I did it part-time for the entire duration of college. Good pay, great people, and it was actually the job that helped me pay for my son's expenses during the short time I had him. I suppose through time alone I built somewhat of an attachment to it, and i'm sure i'll feel out of place for a while in a new work environment. I tend to have trouble with anxiety when faced with new people and new places...but that's part of growth, eventually the new has to come just as the old must become memory. I welcome that, i'm excited for it, and hopefully that'll counteract the anxiety when push comes to shove. We'll see, I suppose. To detract this whole thread from being about me, let's use my current situation as just an example for a concept we're all affected by. By that, I mean how time inevitably brings change upon us. Are there any notable changes or transitions going on in your life currently? If so, what are they? And how are you handling them? The emotional responses we feel in response to change can vary highly between situations and individuals. For instance, my response is governed by my history of social anxiety and uncertainty about my ability (or lack thereof) to adapt to new situations. I imagine I would've been a complete wreck by now if I were the same person I was five or so years ago, so I think I have improved by a certain degree. And that's okay, because self-improvement is a process rather than a singular event. And each day is another day to change for the better. As always, if you've made it this far, thank you for reading. My threads can be a bit lengthy and I appreciate those who're willing to take the time to read them. And if you're curious of what the music has to do with the post...well, nothing really, but I figure a piece of relaxing music meshes well with a relatively long read. Enjoy your day/night, you guys. Each one is something to treasure, whether it's good or bad. [spoiler]I know I said the disclaimer at the beginning would be the only one, but I felt like I should tag this on as an optional read. I really try to avoid using this site as a space to blog about my life or anything of the sort, because i'm well aware of how obnoxious that can be. I hope you all don't find this particular thread detestable and can find something in it worth reflecting on for yourselves or your own lives.[/spoiler]

  • I feel the same as you do when it comes to new things. Except I just joke to myself for a week before the new thing starts, maybe I'll die and not have to deal with it. Good luck with starting your new job.

  • Congratulations and good luck! Personally, I like to look at the world as an ever-changing embodiment of the same substance. A natural substance. By natural law, this substance must change over time, therefor my world, which is an embodiment of this substance, must also change over time. It'd be silly to sit around and avoid this change, and simply foolish to be mad that the inevitable is happening. Truly, for anyone dealing with change in their life, or for anyone who likes a nice, light, easy read, I [i]highly[/i] recommend [url=https://www.amazon.com/Who-Moved-My-Cheese-Amazing/dp/0399144463]Who Moved My Cheese?[/url] by Spencer Johnson. It's a very quick read, and I'm sure you can find a free PDF version online. It's a children's-level reading book, but it's so applicable to our daily lives, it really did change my entire outlook on life. Understanding the importance of embracing change is probably the only reason I'm in college, studying something I absolutely love to death, right now.

    • Congratulations on your new position. I started a new job a few months ago, complete change from what I was doing. It's had such a positive effect on my life and I hope this new chapter in your life has the same effect. Also, having recently lost someone very close to me, I've realised what an important role a funeral director plays in the event of someone's death. The company we used were lovely and it made a sad event a little easier to deal with. Good luck!

        [i][quote]I feel an anxiety. A sudden change. An instant loss and gain. In this moment, surreal, Unreal. A situation impossibly changed In the blink of an eye. Faces, places, different spaces, This place is alien to me; And yet so familiar as to send chills down my spine And remember me of what once was. I was scared, and I am scared now. Of things that may be, And of things that may not; Of people that may be, And of times that may not. The world seems a cold place; And I, a lonely human on the road to somewhere else. What shall become down the road? Misty and cloaked in shadow. Listless melancholy, A ghoul in the night, Follows me to my bed. [/quote][/i] Change, especially fast change, can stir many emotions. (Why do the most important changes always seem to happen the quickest and are the most uncontrollable?)

          • Transitions are a part of life. While the new thing, whatever it may be, could feel strange, there's no reason to feel strange about the transition itself. Embrace it. Know that you're making the right decision. I'm going through one, myself. My wife and I just bought a new house and we close on Friday. It's going to feel weird in the new house but we're super excited. Personally, I can't wait to get started on the work that needs to be done. Anyway, congrats and good luck on your new career. I hope everything works out for you.

              I guess you included that video as an example of transition? The first and third movements are good, but (as much as I hate sounding like a hipster cuck) they're a bit overplayed. Like Don't Stop Believing. *****lol rite after i postit noted i saw that last paragraph n was like lol. But I don't see what people find relaxing about romantic music.

              • Whenever faced with a new situation, I tend to feel very excited about it. I'm so ambitious, I can't help but wildly imagine how my life and perspective will change forever after I've experienced whatever it may be. I'm quite positive about most things. But when faced with a situation that I've been through in the past and had a poor experience with, I feel overwhelmed and scared having to face it once more. Like I couldn't possibly hope to handle it, and I'll only fail all over again. Everything I do is normally so easy for me and comes naturally, so the things that do give me trouble scare me a lot. I'm supposed to be going into college again sometime soon. I've been putting it off for a long time. I started university immediately after graduating from highschool three years ago. I failed all of my classes and dropped out after the first semester. I have all the confidence in the world when faced with an unfamiliar situation, ironically, but I'm absolutely paralyzed when faced with something I already know I'm incapable of handling.

              • Before i graduated from high school, i wanted to be a mortician, the only college that was nearby was in New York City. I live in the Long Island area, so i would have to take a train to NYC and then take a cab (possibly). Being the shy and Socially Awkward person this striked fear and anxiety for me. "Would i get lost? What happens if i miss my train?" many questions like these would rise up and make me doubt the whole Mortician thing. I also had to make a final decision on whether or not i would actually want to do this (obviously had to pay alot of money to get into the college, so this made me think long and hard about the situation at hand). I chose to not take the Mortician career path. I think it was for the better, i don't think i would actually be happy doing that career. As of right now i do not know what to do with my life (doing Liberal Arts currently), but i have been known to be slow with choices but the choice that i will inevitably make will be the right choice, i am 100% sure about that. I think it is best to take things slow and not rush things. I think that is the way you can enjoy life to the fullest. If you rush things you might not be able to go back ever.

                  • I, personally, am in the heavy transition period of highschool. I'm a junior, which means I have to pick a college, learn to drive (already underway), get a girlfriend (preferably a hottie, but beggars can't be choosers), get a part time job, and find out what I'm gonna do with my life.

                            So do you stuff the stiffs before the funeral? Btw, my parents cleaned a local funeral home as a side business when I was a kid. I would steal the jolly ranchers from the communal candy bowl. Watermelon is still my favorite, despite the fact that it invariably summons memories of open caskets and the smell of Windex at 2am.
