Pain is Necessary

We all have disappointment and pain at some point in our lives.  In order for us to grow and learn, there is some kind of disappointment we have to face.  Some of it can be more of a challenge than others.  It could be a death, illness, divorce, loss of a job and so on.  Whether or not you let that pain hold you back, is up to you.  Will you continue to suffer?  If you hold onto that pain, what are you getting out of that?  You must be getting something; maybe it is the victim mentality.

When you are ready to move forward, here are some strategies to consider.  Think about what role you played in the problem.  Did you communicate what you needed and wanted?  Ask for help.  Focus on what you have, not what you have lost.  What we focus on grows so look at all the positive parts of this experience.  What have you learned about yourself from this?  What will you do differently next time?  Put a plan in place to move ahead.  Maybe it is getting a place to live, a different job or taking a class.  By writing things down on a piece of paper and checking them off when done, you will feel a measure of control and success.  Your confidence will grow.

Staying for too long in the world of suffering will hold you back from living your best life.  Take charge and step into your power.  You have survived this difficult time and are starting a new chapter in your life.  You are worthy of so much.
