6 Things To Remind Yourself When You Feel Broken
If you’re reading this, it just means you’re currently facing a situation that you want to get through. It could be an illness, or a life-changing traumatic event, a heart-break or a block that makes you feel stuck. But it also means that by reading this, you want to help yourself heal from the current physical and internal struggle that you feel. In one way or another, everyone’s been there.
Many people face their internal struggles differently and they fight it every day in so many ways. Some people openly cry in sadness or anger and express what they feel but for some, it even hurts more for they just hold it in and suppress it in until feel that they’re fully healed.
There are things that we know but forget to remind ourselves when we are in pain and we feel broken.
1) Be kind to your heart
You’ve been through a lot and you need to remind yourself you need to give yourself the love and peace it deserves. Your heart is delicate but strong and it reflects every part of your being. Often times, when you’re hurt you forget to love yourself, you make yourself suffer for the wrong decisions you have made in the past and secretly force yourself to believe that we are undeserving. So never forget to be kind to yourself. At times it’s but you need to cut yourself some slack and let go of the worries that are plaguing your mind, which destroys your peace.
2) Healing takes time
From time to time you may wonder if you’ll ever recover. But here’s what I can tell you, your search for hope and happiness in order to heal is within you and searching for it only means that you will take longer to heal. Healing does not happen overnight and like everything else, it takes time and when the time is right, you can look back and reflect that this thing that you’re going through was needed for you to be stronger.
3) Have faith and believe that this too shall pass
Hope is alive inside of you. The only missing ingredient you need is faith. Surrender your trust and believe that no matter how hard the situation is, you’re strong enough to endure it and like every hard situation you’ve been through, it has an expiration. This too shall pass.
4) You are loved
Never forget that you are a wonderful and strong being who is capable of love and kindness. Sometimes we forget and don’t see things clearly because of the pain we are in. There are people around you who see how great of a person you are and how you make them happy. We may not see it every day but you have to remind yourself that you have shown someone kindness and love. These people will not remember you because of the things that you think, but at the end of the day, they will remember you for how you made them feel.
5) Do things that make you happy
Life may not always be a walk in the park, but a search for hope means searching for happiness. You don’t need to sit down in the corner and sulk until you feel that you’re fully healed. We all know that pain demands to be felt and you have every right to express it but when you’re ready and hopeful to get through it, make time for rest, relaxation, and take the time to reflect. Surround yourself with people who make you happy and go do things that make you feel good about yourself. Inspired action is one way to help you heal. Let it inspire you and let it spark your passion for life.
6) Surrender & let go
We always hear the phrase “you are the captain of your ship” and it is true. The path that you’re on fully up to you. You have the power to make choices, you have the power to decide how you want things to be. But life is an unpredictable journey with never-ending plots and twists, so when you feel like you’ve done your best but still can’t control the situation, it’s time to surrender everything and have faith. There are things in life that we can’t control, but what we can control is how we perceive things. Truth is, there’s not one challenge in our life that didn’t teach us a thing or two. We need to let go and see it as a part of our journey to develop as beings. When life says no, say what’s next. Trust that this is all just a part of a process to ensure that we are all equipped with life’s lessons in preparation for the bigger and better things that we deserve.
May you find the healing and happiness that you deserve and do know that the healing that you will experience will teach you something of value about who you are. Remember it will be not only for you but also for those around you. Know that this situation does not define you. Wherever you are in your life, be kind and have faith.
