This could be one of the worse feelings you have in your life heartbroken and hurt, a loss, a pain in your gut, emptiness. It happens to all of us at different times in our lives; it leaves you deflated and makes you want to know why. Why me? Why does this have to happen to me, again???
If you are hurting right now this is for you.
It’s happened. You cant believe. You now have to go through it, but not alone. Talking about what has happened with someone you trust can help you to let out your emotions you disbelief and get some love and support, than if you otherwise tried to go through it alone. Im not saying that there wont be times you want to be alone through this and that’s ok too, but not all the time. It’s healthy to share you grief with someone else. Its doesn’t change the situation but you can get encouragement and support if you need.
Pursue a hobby or something that you enjoy.
When I was previously hurt and going through a loss, going to the gym helped me out a lot. It really did. I could ‘let it all out’ physically. Doing something you enjoy can take your mind off things even for a short time and change your state. You may even smile or laugh, try it, see how this works for you.
If you do nothing else, give gratitude.
Gratitude for going through the experience.
Gratitude for what you have now.
Gratitude for the good times you had.
Gratitude for the not so good times, because it meant better times were coming.
Gratitude for knowing why.
Gratitude for the ability to heal.
Gratitude for clarity.
Grief can be the garden of compassion. If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in your life’s search for love and wisdom. – Rumi
In time you will heal. Going through a process of being hurt and heartbroken is ok and very natural. Often people have the idea they have to ‘just get over it’. That’s a myth. You just need to go through it, naturally. Cry, then cry some more. Let it all out. Then give thanks.
