Here are ways on How To Get Your Life Back On Track When You Feel Broken:
1. Give up pretending that you have to be who you used to be.
Our worst battle is often between what we remember from the past and what we presently feel in the moment. Because of this ongoing battle in your mind, one of the hardest decisions you will ever have to make is when to stay put and struggle harder or when to take your memories and move on. There comes a point in life where you have to step outside of the person you’ve been and remember to become the person you were meant to be, the person you are capable of being, and the person you truly are today. No more pretending.
2. Give up berating yourself for everything you aren’t.
Never forget that being kind to yourself in thoughts, words and actions is as important as being kind to others. In fact, it’s harder to be kind to others if you aren’t kind to yourself in the first place. Extend yourself this courtesy. Love your real self. Identify and overcome your fears, little by little everyday. Don’t rush it. Embrace your insecurities and learn how to laugh at yourself. The best comedians in the world have used this skill to make a living. Understand your emotions and express them in an appropriate manner in a suitable environment.
Instead of hurting yourself by hiding from your problems, help yourself grow beyond them. This is the foundation of self-care. Loving yourself includes facing the inner issues that make you believe that you are less than you are. It’s learning to see that you are already beautiful. Not because you’re blind to your shortcomings, but because you know they have to be there to balance out your strengths. Allow your strengths to give you that boost you need to reduce your weaknesses.
3. Give up regretting and holding onto what happened in the past.
When you are stubborn and stay stuck in regret of the life you think you should have had, you end up missing out on the beauty of what you do have. Not all the puzzle pieces of life will seem to fit together at first, but in time, you’ll gradually realize that they do – perfectly. So thank the universe for the things that didn’t work out, because they just made room for the things that will. Be grateful for the ones who walked away from you, because they just made room for the ones who won’t. Every new beginning comes from another beginning’s end.
4. Give up getting caught up in the negativity surrounding you.
To be positive in negative times is not just foolish and delusional optimism. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of tragedy, but also of success, sacrifice, courage, kindness, and growth. What we decide to emphasize in this complex history will determine how well we live our lives. If we look only for the worst, it destroys our capacity and prevents us from doing our best work. If we remember those times and places – and there are many – in which people have behaved extraordinarily, and things have gone well, this gives us the inspirational energy to act and at least the possibility of changing the world we live in. And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to sit around and wait for some perfect future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live right now as we believe we should live, in defiance of all the negativity around us, is in itself an amazing victory.
5. Give up thinking that everyone else has it so much easier than you.
When the going gets tough, remember this simple truth : Nothing that’s worthwhile is ever easy. And when you’re struggling with something that’s important to you, and you feel like your life isn’t fair, look at all the people around you and realize that every single person you see is struggling with something, and to them, it’s just as hard as what you’re going through. You’ll never understand a persons true struggles unless you walk in their shoes. So why compare your struggles with theirs?
