Yesterday has gone forever, you can keep moving forward or you can live with the regret, the worry, the self-sabotage and horror.
Or, you can evaluate and learn from it, let is go and face your future with more optimism. If you keep replaying the past like a movie in your head it
will literally drive you mad. What has happened had happened and there are some things that you can’t change.
This is an exercise that you can repeat again and again until you are able to move forward. It’s important to realise this to help you, face your fears
and worries, and feel the emotions so that it doesn’t drag you down. It’s not how heavy the load is but how long you carry it for. Turn emotions and
hurt into empowering energy
- What situations do I get stressed?
- How have these events affected me physically and mentally?
- Who do I turn to when I am distressed?
- Who supports me?
- Who drags me down and is actually not helping me?
- What have I learnt about myself during these difficult times
- Have I helped others through a similar experience? And what advise do I give that I should also do?
- Am I more hopeful and optimistic after this analysis?
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. I want to teach you how to not just survive but to prosper. Become a strong survivor not a victim.
It’s one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself it to forgive. Forgive everyone. You are relived of carrying that
burden of resentment. You really are lighter. You feel lighter. You just drop the weight.
It takes a strong person to say sorry, and an even stronger person to forgive. When you forgive you won’t change the past, but you sure do change the future.
Forgiveness doesn’t excuse their behaviour. Forgiveness prevents their behaviour from destroying your heart. I never know how strong I was until I had
to forgive someone who wasn’t sorry, and accept an apology I never received. It’s not something you do occasionally but is a permanent attitude. It
is unlocking the door to set someone free and realise you were the prisoner.
It is empowering to show forgiveness and grace to someone who doesn’t deserve it.
Where the pain, anger and sense of loss cause stress, disease, disability, dysfunction or distraction, there exists an opportunity to transform or channel
the pain and anguish toward productive and positive outcomes. With or without forgiveness.
Resilient people own the situation and decide the outcome ….
