Why Some People Cling To Pain

Let go. Why do you cling to pain? There is nothing you can do about the wrongs of yesterday. It is not yours to judge. Why hold on to the very thing which keeps you from hope and love?— Leo Buscaglia

The human mind is your most powerful possession. It’s also one of the most difficult things to control. It takes dedication, practice, and commitment to harness the mind, to control your feelings and your thoughts. But once you do, life becomes so much better, it may still be difficult because you can’t control the minds of people around you or certain situations in life but you can live a better life when you learn to control your minds to a point where you become more conscious of your thoughts.

Why Self-Forgiveness is So Important For You

Photo Credit

When you internally forgive, it is like letting go of that heaviness that had you bound for some time, your feet a free to move, the pain is leaving, the hurt is decapitating and what remains is what each new day brings. The chance to start over again.
― YNG

We often look at forgiveness as something we do for others, we forgive, forget and move on. But forgiveness is not always about forgiving someone who has hurt you or done you wrong, it’s about burying the past and redeeming grace. Your Grace! Forgiveness is also a gift you give yourself. It’s about admitting to yourself that your peace is worth more than the punishment you are inflicting on yourself by not forgiving yourself.

What It Takes To Forgive!

Forgiveness takes intelligence, discipline, imagination, and persistence, as well as a special psychological strength, something athletes call mental toughness and warriors call courage.

Don’t Wait for Perfect Moments

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
― Steve Jobs

I bet you’ve heard this before. Life doesn’t have to always be perfect for it to be great. We don’t always need perfect moments to appreciate life, all we need is a perfect attitude towards life. The perfect plan, perfect job, the perfect time to take a vacation…..Even though we know our time here is limited, we build our lives on perfect.

The mindset behind this thinking is what causes us to lose time, time with family, time with loved ones and time for ourselves. The only way to appreciate anything is to appreciate life. Take the vacation, make the most of that job until you find something better, if one plan doesn’t work, start over. Don’t spend your life waiting for perfect moments. Time waits for no one and one day you will run out of time.

Sometimes you’ll feel like you’ve got it all together but commitment is hard when you’re looking for perfection. Many days you will feel like you’re putting one step forward and two steps back, you will feel like nothing is going right, that life is just one huge bag of disappointments. But if you look closely, you’ll see how perfect life is. Even on a rainy day, there’s cause to smile. 

Life comes at you fast, in the grand scheme of things, even without perfection there is always hope. Grind it out, look past your need for perfection, remember, there are no flowers without rain, disappointments make success that much sweeter when it comes and life is never perfect unless you value it perfect. Don’t wait for perfect moments, look for something perfect in each moment!

Forgiveness is an Expression of Love

Forgiveness is not a feeling; it is a commitment. It is a choice to show mercy, not to hold the offense up against the offender. Forgiveness is an expression of love. “I love you. I care about you, and I choose to forgive you. Even though my feelings of hurt may linger, I will not allow what has happened to come between us. I hope that we can learn from this experience. You are not a failure because you have failed. You are my spouse, and together we will go on from here.” Those are the words of affirmation expressed in the dialect of kind words.

Mending Broken Pieces

I have my insecurities and those insecurities have given me the strength to realise someone will always be taller, prettier, smarter, willing to hurt you and those you love for personal gratification. But it’s comforting to know that each morning is a chance to start over, to reignite the flames that may have dimmed just a little, reignite the passion that once made us embrace the morning. So find someone who is willing to embrace you completely, someone who, without a doubt in their heart or mind, wants to mend the broken pieces of yesterday because this is what life’s about. Starting over!

The Impact of Trauma in Our Lives

Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary. The people we trust with that important talk can help us know that we are not alone.
― Fred Rogers

All life experiences leave their mark. They impact our lives in negative or positive ways, they change the way we see ourselves and how we view the world. It’s impossible for someone to go through a traumatic event in their life without their body or brain reacting to that trauma, it can be a change as subtle as no longer having the taste for your favourite food, to something as big as walking away from family, friends or even relationships. Trauma can impact someone in ways even they find it hard to comprehend. It can also bring forward old habits that were buried.
