I read Bridges as making 2 main points: (1) Change happens to everyone, all the time, but that's just logistics - we move house, change cars and so forth. Transition, however, is psychological, and that's why it's hard, and that's what this book is about. (2) Before a new beginning there has to be an ending. Bridges' model is: ending, neutral zone, new beginning, and his proposition is that people in a transition need to recognise and accept the endings before we can make a good new beginning. He talks about 5 'D's - disengagement, disorientation, dismantling, dis-identification, disenchantment and disorientation, which seemed to me be various facets of letting go, and essential for good endings.
If you are struggling with changes in your life and finding it confusing then I empathise - we are fellow travellers - and want to understand (as opposed to being told what to do) then you might find this book useful and interesting: I certainly did, which is why I've just bought another of his books.
After reading the book it was as if I was reading what was REALLY going through my mind the last few months... Things finally started making sense, I accepted that this processes "Endings - Neutral Zone - New beginnings" are natural to us and by me fighting to speed up the process I was only setting up myself to fail in the future and depriving me of all the learnings...
I love this book! I have recommended it to many of my friends. It will change the way you think and open up your mind, forever
A great comfort - tests your intelligence, realistic - the language used is accessible - no useless 'motivational' messages just sticks to the point.
