Mending Emotional Wounds
Are you the type of individual that has a difficult time of letting something go? Do you reconsider each fault and each error, each broken human relationship? We have all been there at a time or another. If this is a place you don’t wish to stay, take into consideration these items:
- Believe in yourself.
- Have Faith that all matters are working for your good.
- Take time to mend. It’s stated that time mends all wounds. That is not inevitably truthful. It requires time and work to manifest healing.
- Allow yourself to grieve. Grief is a part of the mending process. Let yourself go through all of the phases of grieving: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.
- Let anger work for you. Anger may be a favorable force helping you to recognize that you are a worthwhile human being – worthy of happiness. This means you’re ready to quit weeping and start to reconstruct your life and self-regard.
- Accomplish something special. Go on a trip with someone you love and feel are supportive. Escaping from a terrible situation will help you gain a fresh perspective and become regenerated.
- Forgive yourself and forgive the individual who hurt you. They might not merit forgiving, but you merit the mending and the freedom you’ll acquire by doing so.
- Pray. When we’re hurt it impacts more than just our minds, but our bodies and spirits as well. Take time to become quiet and pray. Tell your higher power all about how you feel.
- Laugh. Laughter is like medication for the soul. Rent five of the most amusing movies you know and simply laugh. Laughing feels great and releases “feel good” endorphins.
Most of all forgive yourself and accept that you are imperfectly human!
