If you have experienced a traumatic time in the past, like the loss of someone you love, illness, the end of a relationship, bullying, etc., and if you still feel hurt, disappointed, or invaluable, you still have unresolved emotional problems.
But I’m here to tell you that you can heal yourself, not 100% because nobody is totally healed. Healing is not linear. But over time, you start learning how to control these emotions and to approach the bad days. And isn’t as hard as you may think. In some cases, it can take a bit longer to heal, but you just have to be patient and kind with yourself. And always remember your worth and that you’re capable of doing more than you’ve ever thought possible.
You just need a few minutes every day to relax and connect to your energy, to create space and time to heal yourself, and with practice, you will begin feeling and seeing the benefits.
In this post, I’m giving you some simple steps to jumpstart your healing process and release emotional pain from your body. I really hope this could help you in some way.
Become aware of your emotions
Express your emotions, cry, yell, write, let it all out. By expressing your emotions, you’re becoming more aware of why you’re feeling the way you’re feeling. Don’t discredit yourself and your thoughts, these emotions are popping up for a reason.
All this pain you have been carrying inside must come out. It’s an important step in learning how to release emotional pain from your body.
If you’re starting with meditation, start with just 5 or 10 minutes every day. It will help make it a habit you can stick with. With meditation, you’ll feel calmer, more creative, positive, and more aware of your emotions. A few minutes a day can make a big difference in how you feel.
Accept that revenge won’t help
The most important step in healing yourself is letting go. Constantly thinking about revenge on whatever is causing you to hurt is ultimately only hurting yourself. Let go of the instinct to seek revenge to create room in your mind to feel peace, acceptance, and happiness. Focus on that new positive mindset instead. It takes time, practice, and awareness to get there but you CAN do it.
Forgive yourself and others
You’ll never heal yourself if you don’t forgive yourself and other people involved. This is very challenging, but it’s crucial for your process.
My tip for you is to write down a letter for you and for the people who hurt you (you don’t need to give them). Just write everything you would have wanted to tell them, how they made you feel, and how you’re feeling right now. This can be helpful in the process of forgiveness.
Practice the type of exercise you enjoy the most. Regular exercise helps to keep the mind and body as healthy as possible, and while you exercise, you don’t think about bad things.
Visualize the best version of yourself
Visualize the life you want, reflect on what you want from life, and what steps need to be taken to achieve it. Try to have a positive mindset, believe you can achieve anything you want to.
It’s time to redefine your reality. It’s time to heal your past, and take control of your thoughts, feelings, and emotions.
We’ve all been hurt in different ways and we all require different amounts of time to heal. But you’re one step closer if you made the decision to let it go. To accept and really want to heal.
Always remember that you’re worth so much more than you’ve convinced yourself of and you’re capable of amazing things ❤
