In LOVE, I have been elated and brokenhearted and felt every emotion in between.
As I’ve gotten older I’ve learned to embrace the painful parts, because I realize they make me stronger and they are just parts of life.
It hurts to power through the rough times but just like a muscle, it must be exercised before it’s able to become stronger.
Think about a specific painful moment in your life,
and then think about how that feeling didn’t last forever even though you thought it would.
Remember that life will continue to go on and time really does heal all wounds.
I’m grateful for all the love and all the heartache I’ve experienced in my life.
Both have been equally wonderful.
FEELINGS, the thing about this way that you feel right now is that it’s only temporary.
I know that your mind is consumed right now, suffocating; it’s like you can’t find a way to think about anything other than the things that are causing you anxiety.
These feelings don’t last.
It may not feel like it right now, but this feeling will fade; maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but you will smile again, you will feel like you again, you will feel happy and full of life again.
Nothing is permanent.
That’s the bittersweet part about life.
That’s why it’s so important to appreciate the truly amazing parts and people in your life while also understanding that the bad days won’t last forever.
Always be present, always be grateful, always know that you’ll get through this obstacle and the one after that.
You’re so much stronger than you think you are right now.
Think about it; you’ve gotten through every tough day in your life so far, and this is no different.
Take a big breath and think of all the things you have to be grateful for and breathe out all the bad.
You are in control of how you feel.
You are in control of this moment.
YOU ARE IN CONTROL. PERIOD.
In a world that seeks connection,
we oddly avoid eye contact,
we time our text responses in order to protect ourselves from seeming too eager or too interested,
we hold our feelings back because we don’t want to seem overly emotional or unreasonable.
We silence our instincts,
at the end of the day instead of feeling good about ourselves,
we feel alone,
we feel misunderstood.
it is okay to be emotional,
to seek help,
to confidently tell someone you enjoy being around that you are infatuated with them.
There is nothing wrong with vulnerability,
with being human,
for that is what creates depth within our relationships,
that is what ultimately unifies us.
If your feelings & emotions bring joy, show them.
Living a happy life means, do what you wish to do right now.
You have to get to a point where your mood doesn’t shift based on the insignificant actions of someone else.
Don’t allow others to control the direction of your life.
Don’t allow your emotions to overpower your intelligence.
Self-control is strength.
Calmness is mastery.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above and it also got nothing to do with next few lines i am typing. Shared it because this PEGASUS spyware row is getting wilder day by day. Governments of UK, India, France, USA, Dubai, Israel & 35 other countries tapped/hacked 50000 phone numbers of journalists, political leaders, terrorists, even a country’s prime minister. Am i against this? Hell NO. Countries are supposed to spy on each other for their safety. It’s a thing from cold war era, this will keep on going because it’s nothing new.

The sad reality of our world;
“Most people think avoiding own emotions makes them look & sound POSITIVE”.
People going through DEPRESSION are overly emotional. Depression develops the tendency to bottle up emotions, but those emotions don’t disappear. Instead they overflow at the slightest inconvenience. If someone becomes volatile over small things, it could be because depression overwhelms them with emotions. They might cry, become angry or even have an emotional breakdown in response to something. Most people would normally brush-off.
If you are going through DEPRESSION, talk about it & consult a medical professional in worst case. We all have been through this, everything in your life good or bad pushes you towards your purpose slowly but surely.
Overthinking is just a painful reminder that you care way too much, even when you shouldn’t.
One of the worst things you can do with yourself is: Overthinking. Have you ever heard or experienced analysis paralysis? If you have, you know that overthinking leads to freezing up and whirring. If you want to be mentality strong & decisive, OVERTHINKING is your first enemy.
Mentally strong people choose not to give any energy to that negativity, they’d rather think critically and take logical action. Of course, they know that there are always risks and consequences no matter what choice they make. After all there is no perfect decision. Nonetheless be confident no matter what happens, you’ll be okay.
Being positive whole day everyday is definitely tough. Most people can’t keep up with their ways to seek out positivity. Have you ever met the kind of person who rebels in the worst details!? They focus and hold onto bad moments, like getting cut off in traffic, having a mediocre meal or spilling a drink. If this sounds like you, it means that you’ve trained your brain to focus on negativity. You might even be an expert by now on being a downer.
Now undoing years of training negative behaviour can be a challenge. Fortunately, you can train your brain to seek out positivity instead of concentrating on moments that elicit your negative emotions. You can begin to shift your focus to positive moments. Make it a point to consider positive information and redirect your attention when you’re feeling negative.
