Individuals in a relationship adapt to change in different ways and at different speeds. People get frustrated with others when they do not adapt to change at the same pace. One is yelling, “hurry-up!” while the other is yelling, “slow down!” — Change is a normal part of life. People get new jobs, children are born or leave for school, or family members pass away. When we learn to be patient with each other, change is a little easier.
