In retrospect, you may feel you could have done things differently and may even feel guilt or shame. But when you have your back against the wall, you will lose your ability to think and act rationally or logically. If you have made any mistakes and indulged in addictive behaviors, forgive yourself. As long as you have the strength to act logically now, letting go of the past and moving on will be the best thing you can do. At least now you know what you shouldn’t do and you can make better decisions next time.
5. Love yourself
“Love yourself instead of abusing yourself.” – Karolina Kurkova
After you have forgiven yourself, now it’s time to give yourself the love you deserve. Instead of seeking love and appreciation from others, appreciate yourself first. Stop neglecting your body, stop ignoring your emotions and stop indulging in harmful behavior. You owe yourself a better life. You owe yourself a better you.
Take proper care of your mind, body and soul through self love and self care. Practice healing habits that will bring a feeling of overall well being. The objective is to connect with your true self and get back to balance and wellness. Enjoy the simple pleasures of life and nourish your mind, body and soul.
I highly recommend this fascinating video on the interplay between the brain, experiences & memories by Dr. Shawn Hayes:
Heal your emotions
Healing is a time consuming and difficult process. There is no shortcut to healing your emotions, your mind or your emotional muscle memory. You can’t just miraculously wash away old trauma and wounds and get rid of the pain. Healing yourself takes time. Allow yourself to go through the process as healing is a journey and not a destination.
Self love, self care and compassion will make your journey easier and make healing last a lifetime. Loving ourselves can be the hardest thing to do for some of us, but this is exactly what you need to release trapped emotions. Free all the emotional energy stuck inside your body and you will experience a positive shift in your life.
“Healing takes courage, and we all have courage, even if we have to dig a little to find it.” – Tori Amos
Liberating yourself is healing yourself.
You deserve this.
