One other way that we can respond to change is to take control and work positively with the change. For example, if you suffered an injury and were no longer able to do a physical activity you once enjoyed, you might seek another activity that is equally satisfying. Making the most out of the situation can be a rewarding and enlightening experience, especially when you open yourself to all the possibilities. The key to using this method successfully though, is knowing what you can realistically control and what you cannot. Seeking to control aspects of your life that are beyond your control can be a frustrating and futile experience.
