Fear of change

Fear of change is one of the biggest things that holds people back when it comes to moving. It’s the idea of starting over in a completely new and unfamiliar place and losing all of those little connections and hang-out spots that makes us the most nervous about leaving.
On the other side of the coin, the fear of change is also usually the first fear many people need to overcome to move forward with the moving process.

Fear of leaving loved ones behind

Handling this part of the moving process and overcoming that apprehensiveness about leaving behind loved ones is easier the earlier you deal with it. Waiting until a week before you move will not make things any better, so as soon as you make that decision to move, address it with the ones you care about and you’ll find that when the time finally comes to leave, you’ll feel a lot better about it.

Fear of the unexpected

The unexpected is always lurking right around the corner, and knowing this will help you to cope with your fear of the unknown. Moving can be a difficult adjustment to make, and being in a strange new place with new faces and new routines can leave you feeling vulnerable to unexpected occurrences. However, it’s important for you to accept the fact that “unexpected” doesn’t necessarily mean “bad” and that opening yourself up to new ideas and new experiences can help you grow as a person.

How to face your fears

Nothing will make your worries and fears about moving melt away faster than knowing exactly what has to be done and when it has to be done. Preparing yourself for your move means more than just ironing out the tangible aspects of moving. It also means preparing yourself emotionally, as well as physically. By being prepared, you can clear any hurdle and accomplish anything, including moving.
