In fact, do you even have to think about what happened as “unwanted experiences”? Why not start thinking about it as clarifying contrast? Huge difference in perspective. Take your power back by realizing that you can use the clarifying contrast as inspiration to blossom into everything you desire to be. It is all of value.
The path ahead of you might seem rough an unpredictable – take comfort in knowing that all it takes is one small step. You don’t have to know the entire path ahead of you, just gently take one step at a time. One breath at a time.
No. Just no. No justification needed. No explanation required. Just no. When something feels even the slightest bit off, trust your gut, back away and say no. When you say no to things that feel off to you, you say yes to yourself.
Does it matter if the road was once cold and barren, if the road you are on today is warm and comfortable?
Time may help fade some memories and aid in your healing process by giving you some distance from the painful experiences. However, time doesn’t heal all wounds – you do.
The dark shadows makes the colorful contrasts even more beautiful. Every unwanted experience enriches the bigger picture.
At times you may feel lost in dark despair, and you may tremble by the mere thought of what happened. However, it is never hopeless and it is never too late because no matter how dark it might temporarily seem – there is always a glimmer of hope inside your heart. Close your eyes, take a deep breath and trust that this too shall pass.
On days when it feels really hard, know that this is an excellent day for you to be kinder to yourself. The worse you feel, the more kindness, compassion and love you need to give yourself.
Every word a mindfull moment of pure focus. A reliefgiving moment when all those dark flashbacks dissolve. Writing is my guiding light out of the dark.
Those who laugh at your insecurities, don’t care about the darkness you had to go through. Not because they are insensitive, but because they are so caught up in their own inner pain and turmoil.
Those who hurt others are only acting out their own inner pain, whether they know it or not. Forgive them without words, hold nothing but compassion in your heart for them and set yourself free.
