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.
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.
Hiding away from the world in your own safe haven may not take away the thing you fear, however, it may give you a moment of rest and relief which might be exactly what your body needs. So hide away, rest and refuel your energy – it is a vital part of your healing journey.
If those you called friends were absent when you were drowning in despair, fill your heart with gratitude without them in your life as your zest for life slowly returns. Those who stayed with you when you shattered into a million pieces, showed you what truly matters in life.
Those who hurt others are only acting out their own inner pain, whether they know it or not. They don’t need more hatred or punishment, they need help.
Those raspy rascals that hurt your heart can give you valuable gifts that help you grow as a person. Grow and evolve beyond anything you were before.
To forgive the unforgivable. To find happiness after the darkest of despair. To gain strength after the harshest of falls.
One moment at a time. You are doing the very best you can. Give yourself a break, go slower and look for things that give you relief.
