7 Things to Remember When You Feel Broken Within

Advertisements


I have been broken many times in my life. I had a life that brought me a blow that knocked me down. The pain and despair that I feel have lasted for months. I wondered if I would ever survive this, even if I was living a life where I felt happy and safe. Gradually, over time, my health improved and my health improved.

Now, when I look back, I realize that those experiences, though painful at the time, were the turning point in my life. Now I live my life doing what I love – writing, speaking and training.

To live our lives to the fullest, the only way we can do this is to overcome the challenges life throws at us. We have to deal with pain, betrayal, hardship, feelings of despair and despair in life, because what else can we learn about who we are?

There is no other way for us to learn to have strength, courage, hope and hope for our lives and future.

Even though we don’t like it, everyone feels broken at times in their life journey. Often when we find ourselves in this place of despair, we do not know what to do so we may end up living our lives with fear, regret, pain, disappointment and sadness. This is not the way our lives should have been.

If you feel broken inside, remember these 7 things because they will help you find your courage and build your strength so that you can go out and embrace the joy of living the life you love.

  1. Remember to Accept and Expect Change
    “It is not the most intelligent of all living things; it is not the strongest and heaviest; but the remaining species are the ones that can adapt and adapt to the changing environment in which it is found. ”- Dr. Leon C. Megginson

In today’s world of constant change, it’s hard to control who you are and manage the hardships and uncertainties of life. What is going on in our lives today is change.

Instead of fighting the inevitability of change, learn how to accept it. Accept the change and know that by doing this your life can only be better.

Resisting to change will give you the negative energy that keeps you feeling broken and depressed about life.

  1. Remember to accept your power of choice
    “Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose happiness, happiness, indifference, pain… Feeling the freedom that comes from being able to keep making mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel healthy, not to deny my personality but to accept it. ”- Kevyn Aucion

Exercising your power of choice will help you to change your way of life from a place of suffering to a place of prosperity and hope.

Exercising your power of choice empowers and strengthens your ability to act and make decisions.

Your power of choice is a gift you have within you if you choose to use it, which will change your life.

  1. Remember to Ask for Help
    “Asking for help does not mean that we are weak or helpless. It often shows a high degree of honesty and cunning. ”Anne Wilson Schaef

Asking for help is not a sign of weakness. When we feel broken inside, we want to hide from the world. Sometimes, it is because we feel embarrassed, or we believe that people will not understand what we are going through.

The support, advice and encouragement from others helps us to overcome difficulties and solve problems in our lives.

It is the strength and wisdom from friends, family and supporters that strengthens our courage and our desire to take action to change our lives for the better.

  1. Remember Presence
    “Yesterday was gone. Now he arrived. We only have today. Let’s get started. ”- Mother Teresa

Your thoughts fuel how you feel about your life. When you feel broken in your life, it will be your negative thoughts that control your feelings of sadness, disappointment and unhappiness. When you feel happy, your positive thoughts of hope and confidence will support some of these feelings.

The key to controlling your negative thoughts is to try to distance yourself from them and keep them instead of reacting to them automatically.

Identify those thoughts that will draw you in and create confusion and inertia within you. Accept that these ideas do not work well for you and work for you to have more control over them.

Label the type of thought you have rather than pay attention to the content. Look at your thoughts and when you see a judgmental attitude (how good or bad the situation is), call it “judgment”.

If you criticize yourself for doing something wrong, label that thought as “criticism”. After that, ask yourself how much time you want to spend on self-criticism and blame. My suggestion is that you spend zero time doing this job.

  1. Remember to Concentrate on What Makes You Happy
    “Find a place inside where there is joy, and happiness will burn pain” – Joseph Campbell

When you feel hopeless, frustrated, and hopeless, it is easy to forget the good things that are happening in your life. In fact, if you are consumed with negligence, you will begin to believe that there is nothing good in your life.

Focusing on the good things in your life and what brings you happiness is an important step in changing your life. The more you focus on the good in your life, the more hope you will have.

Security and hope are contagious and the more you celebrate this, the better you will feel about your life.

  1. Remember to Be optimistic about your future
    “The good thing about the future is that it comes in just one day at a time” – Abraham Lincoln

Understandably, when you feel down in life, you may be overwhelmed by the thought that this will be your life forever. It is very difficult to be optimistic about the future when you feel pain and heartache. However, your pain and heart will not heal you and you are deep inside, you need treatment – you just don’t know how.

For me, while feeling broken in my life, the one thing that helped me in my medical journey was to try and keep hope for my future. It was important for me to realize that what was happening in my life at the time was not a part of my future life. That little hope I had for my future was enough to make me slowly start to recover – step by step.

  1. Remember to Accept that Life is a Mystery
    “The mystery of life is not solved; it is a fact of life. ”- Jacobus Johannes Leeuw

Life is funny and the more we fight and fight against it, the harder it is to live our lives. Accepting and accepting the mystery of life allows us to heal and view our pain as just one of many chapters in our lives.

Life throws balls around. It tests us and challenges us. We survive and thrive in life by accepting these challenges so that we can grow and live courageous and sustainable lives.

When we feel broken inside, we need to remember that this is part of our journey and that there is no escape from pain. We just have to work through the pain and despair.

Instead of struggling to ask for life and blame yourself for how you feel, take a deep breath and remember that life is a mystery. Do not make moments of despair and unhappiness in your life the basis of how you will live your life forever.

Your role in life is to accept it – good and bad and bad and to live your life to the fullest – so go live it!

“Ester asked why people are sad. “That’s easy,” said the old man. “They are prisoners of their own history. Everyone believes that the main purpose in life is to follow a plan. They don’t even ask if the plan is theirs or if it’s someone else’s plan. They gather experiences, memories, objects, ideas from other people, and more than they can handle. That is why they forget their dreams. ”- Paul Coelho, The Zahir.
