If you are suffering from a broken heart, you may not know where to start in order to move forward with your life. It is very important to motivate yourself and stop looking back in order to realise that you first need to close the door behind you, and face forward to release negative emotions.
Deep inside, we always know when a relationship is worth fighting for. Staying in a toxic relationship can hold us back, providing no real future for ourselves. In a similar way, rebuilding trust, in order to mend a broken relationship that is worth saving, is also a slow and difficult process.
No matter the situation you are now, the first thing you need to understand to find the path leading to a better future, is to allow peace to enter your being. Holding grievances can cause damage and hurt. From my personal experience, healing from a broken relationship has a lot to do with forgiveness. I say that because forgiving is associated with self healing and the ability to let go. When I forgive myself for any mistake I’ve done in the past, I am able to understand that I have no control about what already happened in the past, but I feel empowered by the idea that I can prevent the past from controlling my future actions. When we decide to forgive, we need to be at a place in our life where our happiness is far more important to us than the need to be right or wrong.
So today, give yourself the permission to heal by letting go of any sense of blame for something that has happened in the past. Only when you do that, you are able to live in the present instead of the past. Negativity breeds negativity. Go easy on yourself, keep in mind that even if right now, you can’t see anything positive coming from a past experience, the future is yours to explore. Resentment can drain you of your own energy and resources and ultimately hold you back. You may feel like you’ve had so much negativity that it’s impossible to come out strong on the other end, but if you focus on making peace with your past, you will see that your past will not going to influence your current responses. Once you are at peace with yourself, life will gradually shape itself around you. Release negative feelings and prepare yourself to live life to the fullest. You can use a setback to feel stronger when addressing future challenges, and accept peace.
