Everything gets a bit uncomfortable when it’s time to change (or when it’s time to recalibrate your expectations).  That’s just a part of the growth process.  Things will get better.  Be patient, and remind yourself that you will never have to force anything that’s truly meant to be.  Just do your best, then adopt a “whatever happens, happens” mindset.  Don’t try to force things—let go and allow the right blessings to flow.”
