Sometimes life has a way of pushing you to your limits, making you feel hopeless and desperate. Suddenly it all becomes too much for you. You can’t seem to find a ray of hope.
We’ve all been there. We’ve all experienced the pain of feeling so broken inside. However, this does not mean that you should give up. You should let yourself feel everything and believe that, eventually, the pain will pass, and you will feel good again.
Below are 8 things that you should remember every time you feel broken inside to help you endure the pain and get your life together again.
1. Accept and Honor Your Feelings – Don’t Fight Them
Never feel bad for feeling sad, angry, depressed or whatever is it that you are feeling. Your emotions are what shape you, and you should not ignore them. If you keep your feelings inside you, they will backfire in the end. When you are fighting your feelings, you will only feel more depressed and you will only postpone the inevitable breakdown. So, be brave and accept and honor your feelings – don’t ever try to fight them.
2. Your Family and Friends Are There to Support You
Who is better than your family and your best friends to comfort you when you are feeling down? Don’t be ashamed to ask them for help and support because we all need these things when we are going through a hard time in life. They will be more than glad to help you because they love you and want you to be happy.
3. Don’t Identify So Much with What You Are Feeling Now
You must remember that your feelings do not define you. They come and go. You should only try to not invite bad feelings into your life, and if they do happen – you should just observe them and let them go. Your feelings are not who you are. Remember that and do not let them control you.
4. Keep Remembering Your WHY
When you are going through a rough patch in life, you are more vulnerable to forget your true self and what you want from your life. However, you should know that hard times are there to remind you of your purpose in life. Do not give up. You will only get stronger after the bad period passes. So, always keep your ‘why’ in your mind.
5. Focus on The Things That Make You Happy
Oftentimes, when we are feeling broken inside, we tend to focus all our attention on our pain and everything that is not going right in our life rather than focus on things that bring us joy and meaning to us. So, go out with your friends, plant some flowers, get some sunshine, walk in nature. Do everything that feels good to your heart.
6. Cracks Allow Light to Come In
It takes painful, heart-aching experiences to be able to see the good in people and in the world. Sometimes we all need to experience pain to feel happiness again. If everything in our life is good and positive, we will have no room for improvement and growth.
7. Remember Everything That Exists Beyond Your Brokenness
Just because you feel broken now, it does not mean that everything around you should be broken too. One bad day does not make a bad life. Think about all the good and beautiful days that happened and are about to happen to you. Enjoy the little things and remember – every storm will pass, and the sun will shine again.
8. Remember That Life Is A Series of Ups and Downs and Your Pain Is Only Temporary
Life is too short. Keep that in mind always. Don’t take it too seriously. Enjoy every moment of it. Despairs and hardships will pass. Your heart will heal, and you will be smiling again.
