Life is full of ups and downs and no one can be happy one hundred percent of the time. It’s only natural to feel down sometimes. In fact, it’s natural to feel emotionally and spiritually broken sometimes too.
When working through these tough times, it’s important not to give in to your emotions. Instead, these are 9 things to remember when you feel completely broken inside.
1. You are Not Alone
Everyone is fighting their own battle every day. Just because you don’t see it, doesn’t mean that it isn’t there. You are not alone in your struggles and there are people out their who understand what you’re going through.
2. Everything is Temporary
It’s easy to realize that you can’t be happy forever, but we forget that we can’t be sad forever either. Just like everything else, this feeling will pass. It just needs some time and a little help to make it go faster.
3. Your Feelings are Valid
Don’t let anyone tell you that you don’t have a right to feel low. Just because someone might have it worse somewhere else doesn’t mean that you’re not valid in how you feel. Our emotions are subjective, and if you’re feeling broken, you have every right to.
4. Someone Loves You
In your darkest times, you may feel like no one cares about you, but deep down, you know it’s not true. You are loved. Even if it’s just one person who loves you, that still means a whole lot.
5. Don’t Fight Your Emotions
Fighting your negative feelings just gives them more power. Let them come and let yourself feel them. By doing this, you’ll allow them to pass naturally without feeding the negativity,
6. You’re Important
Even if you think that you’re worthless, you are still important in this world. Your life has value and meaning. For whatever reason it may be, you are on this Earth and that means that you have worth.
7. You are Strong Enough
Don’t forget that you’ve been through hard times before and have always come out on the other side kicking. You are strong enough to get past it, no matter how hard it may be.
8. The Dark Times Will Pass
Every cloud has a silver lining, and every dark tunnel has a light at the end. These may be cliché but they’re true. Eventually, the dark times will pass, and they will be replaced by something so much brighter and happier.
9. You Have the Power to Influence Your Future
It’s true that you can’t control everything that happens in your life, but you still have a certain amount of power. You can influence what happens in your future by making positive choices now. If you don’t like something in your life, try to change it and work to improve every aspect of your life.
Don’t let yourself be overtaken by your own emotions when times are hard. You may be feeling completely broken inside, but you will be able to pick up the shattered pieces and put them back together again.
