When all you want to do is fall asleep, yet you can’t because your heart is racing with panic and every heart beat feels like a loud drum beat in your head.
When your body is exhausted and torn from all the anxiety, yet you can’t fall asleep because your soul is restless and in desperate need of comforting.
Just breathe and know that your body, mind and soul will get the rest that is needed even if you stay awake the entire night. Just breathe and relax. It will get easier with time.

What if the very thing that shattered you into a million pieces and left you broken and lost – could also be the very thing you use as your inspiration to grow and blossom into everything you desire to be?
Let your pain be your solid foundation on which you rebuild your inner strength. All the fear you felt can inspire you to trust life more. All those painful actions he put you through can inspire you to forgive others unconditionally. All the powerlessness you felt and all the tears you have cried can inspire you to fill your heart with kindness and love.
It may be quite hard to see your unwanted experiences as something that can be of value to you, when you are still hurting from it. But give yourself time. A lot of time. Yes, it was awful. Yes, it was painful. Yes, you felt powerless and completely ripped of all your security. Nothing can change what he did to you and nothing can change the pain you felt. But, he is not hurting you NOW, he is not doing it to you NOW – so why would you continue to torment yourself, when you can choose to change your perspective of what happened and actually find strength in it?
Give yourself time. 🙏🌹 ❤️

Every nightmare has a purpose, it is a reminder for you to be kinder to yourself – no matter what is going on in your life.

If you feel like you have lost yourself, that you have lost your happiness, lost your zest for life and even lost faith in humanity – please don’t give up, just keep breathing.
I know it is breathtakingly hard at times. I know you just want to break down and cry. But keep breathing, especially when it feels tough. It is in these weak moments that you rebuild your inner strength most powerfully. Yes, it hurts. Yes, you are angry. Yes, you are tired. That is exactly how it is supposed to be, you are right on track. Keep breathing, get back up and don’t give up.

Those who hurt others are also hurting within. Yesterday I found out something that first made me afraid and worried, but as I found out even more about it, I began to relax and feel slightly better. It is easy to get into the fight or flight mode when you feel that your safety is threatened, but sometimes you have to take a step back, breathe deeply and realize you are in no mortal danger right in this very second. Most fears are caused by your own fearful thinking, the scary “what if” – scenarios. Sure, this person might have ill intentions, this person might try to harm others again but right now he cannot hurt anyone – find relief in that, for now.
I wish no one any harm. It doesn’t matter what you have done, I will still wish that you find peace within and happiness in life. I believe a peaceful, happy person would never choose to hurt another being. Hurt comes from hurt. Hatred only breeds more hatred. Someone has to break the negative cycle, and it might as well be you. 🙏

When you are so tired you just want to lay down and sleep for the rest of your life – be kind to yourself.

Don’t compare your experience to that of another – how you react in a situation might be very different from how another person would react in the same situation. We are all unique and therefor our reactions are unique as well.
Allow them to feel as they feel, their emotional reactions are valid and true for them – you don’t have to understand. Do the same for yourself as well, allow yourself to feel as you feel, because your emotional reactions are valid and true for you. The more you allow yourself to feel as you feel, without judgement, the easier those emotions will pass. It is a vital part of the healing journey.

Take it one moment at a time, one breath at a time. Go slower. Your only job is to be yourself, you cannot get it wrong. Be kinder to yourself, especially when you feel low. Keep soothing yourself in any way you can. This too shall pass, you will feel better again. ❤️

It is so true that what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger. Those are not just optimistic words that are true for everyone at all times, automatically – you have to DO something if you want to feel better. It is hard. It takes a lot of effort, time, patience and most of all kindness. YOU have to CHANGE the way you look at the situation, YOU have to look at it from another perspective. Otherwise you will just keep being stuck in your own sadness.
Do you want to feel better, DO something about it! Ask for help, seek support from those who work with people who have been through difficult traumas. Don’t give up, you CAN change your perspective of the event, you CAN change your perspective of yourself, and when you do, you WILL feel better.
You can feel better again, no matter what happened to you in your past, no matter what happens to you right now and no matter what happens to you in your future.

When you wake up from a terrible nightmare in the middle of the night, and you realize you cannot fall back to sleep – take a few moments to appreciate the nightmare. Appreciate that it made you aware that you have fears within you, that you feel insecure and afraid – and then be kinder to yourself. Sooth yourself and love yourself exactly as you are, fears and everything. You don’t have to wait until you feel better in order to love yourself – choose to love yourself now. That is the key to all improvements you desire – how you feel about yourself. If you can change how you feel about yourself, without anything else changing, now everything in your life will change. ❤️
