A life transition is when an individual experiences a major change within their life. This notable event may be expected and predictable, or it could be sudden and unpredictable. Regardless of the circumstances, life changes and transitions can cause people all sorts of emotions and behavioral responses. Some of these reactions may include anxiety, stress, depression, PTSD, as well as joy and freedom. Some life transitions create instability in our lives as we move through the change, while others may promote stability and healing.
