Heal with yourself

Healing takes time.

Don't think you are ready when you are not even close to healed.

Be patient and see life with an open mind.

I recovered fast from my greater changes over the nearly twelve years, and believed in myself and in how I planned to make my life unique.

The change affected me harshly, and each day felt different..

My mental health was not affected as I did not let that happen to me.

I had to stay focused on adapting, on my relationship with my family.

I maintained sanity with my peaceful mind.

I enjoyed learning and the more I learned the more I know about me.

I reduced stress by relaxing my mind.

I breathe something most of you forget to do in any crisis.

  • How often have you forgotten to breathe and just went into a frenzy?

Breathing helped and still does and had made me stronger to cope with other issues.

I needed my strength and so learning to relax was the key for me.

I managed my daily activities with calmness and happy moments.

I found me from deep inside, and did not feel afraid when I faced up to my situations.

I understand my feelings and took it all easy.

I did not want to be wrapped up in my own world and forget about my loved ones. My responses were spontaneous.

I did not hide my feelings with any substance or alcohol; I faced my challenges with an open mind.

I honored my feelings and expressed my feelings freely.

At times I felt I knew myself about there was often that surprise and that showed me how I have improved along the years.

Judgment is normal and sometimes you can become involved with judgment.

You can't say that you have never judged another individual. You judge yourself and others most of the time.

  • How do you see yourself?

  • What do you tell yourself about your image?

You are your own judge but fail to see it that in many ways.

  • When you see yourself in the mirror do you not comment on yourself?

You can be your own enemy when it comes to emotions, especially when you bring up the feelings of sadness, anger, or loneliness.

You can save yourself from lots of pain if you stop being your inner critic.

So think about it the best for you would be to remove that judgment.

Welcome happiness into your life.

I did that when I knew it was time to move on in time you too can find happiness from within you.

Joy makes you the better person include that in your life, don't you sit down and think negatively.

Sometimes you become very into the sadness of life that you actually don't think of the better part of life.

If you have experienced such a life your major suffering can go on for a while.

What you are doing in this way is denying yourself from the reality of the good life.

You don't give yourself happiness because all you know is heartache.

It reminds me of some of the local people. Many of whom I have met have been through the wartime in Croatia and have forgotten how to be happy.

The major cause of their sadness has remained within their souls.

Their focus is now mostly on materialism the main part of simple happiness is no longer in most of their lives.

It is sad when you really think about how they have passed through all these years.

Certain incidents can leave you with miserable life overtime.

Life is such with all experiences from all sides how you choose to cope with situations presented to you is totally up to you.

Remember you deserve to be-honored.

Don't neglect yourself.

The way you treat others is how you should be treated.

If you treat others in a nasty way surely you deserve the same treatment.

Respect each other in the same you should earn respect and be respected.

If you are comfortable with the feelings of others and of your feelings that shows honor.

Don't mix up the issues of feelings of others and your feelings.

At some point you must have been hurt in your life and pain is an obvious part of life.

The great part of my life I listened and learned carefully. I surprised myself in many ways.

I did not know I would learn another language, especially one of the most difficult languages in the world.

I did not know I would live in another country.

I had no idea I would be able to cope with the many obstacles.

Life showed me more than I had expected in the last few years.

I did not know my confidence would hold me thus far.

I gave me time and let it all go by and as each day passed I saw the differences.

The more I saw the more I gained my strength to go on.

I came back to myself after a while.

My hard experiences showed me I can do more.

I communicated and observed all the way.

I understood and opened up to another culture and life.

I connected to people I did not know exist such greatness from them showed more greatness in me.

I had battled with proper communication and over time that had improved.

I was determined to make it work and still am determined to make my life successful.

I learned to stay focused when in communication.

In that way I knew how to connect with the individual sharing their stories.

I listened to my feelings and made it all possible for me.

I don't interrupt someone when in a conversation that is disrespectful.

I respect that people have their own lives their lives are different. Also I expect others to respect my way of life.

I don't constantly telephone someone I understood they have their own activities or busy schedules.

Pain is often the issue you just have to make time to resolve issues only if the issues concern you.

Don't jump into the wrong conclusions that can ruin many friendships.

Nobody can stop a change in their life it is inevitable.

Think realistically change is what makes you alive with all experiences.

Be appreciative.

Be the better example.

Encourage downfalls to reach the top.

You can’t reach the top without battle no smooth rolling in life just struggle before all gets calm and better.

Try to ignore what makes you angry and live life.

Don't take everything to heart.

Do what you know will change you for the better try enlighten your life with literature.

Reading can open new thoughts for you and can bring out a new character from you.

Don't bury your thoughts speak up and live and let be.

A balanced lifestyle is always a healthy one.

Do whatever you feel is right for you and what makes you feel the happiest.

Don't ignore true feelings.

Pay attention to those who love and care for you.

Just once try not to me horrible to others be nice and always smile.

Be you and show love to others.

Nothing in life can be true than you opening up and showing love to others in the most simplest of ways.

A meaningful way of life comes straight from the heart.

I love my life and I am blessed with a loving family.

What matters to the heart will forever make you happy and can also make you sad.

Cope with such feelings strongly and with faith.

Don't regret instead forgive and embrace each day with a greater image.

Your character shows to others that the important part of you should be presented with pride and joy.

All moments come from within cherish what you have and love freely.

Be original and show yourself to others.

You are never alone in this world and don't even think you are alone.

Heal faster the simple way

Life is Beautiful

      Devika, I must learn to let myself heal and not dwell on things, especially those that are not important. You are right, we can often be our own worst critic, we need to focus on all the positives instead of dwelling on the negative things in life. Interesting and thought provoking as always.

      I think as we get older, we bring our life experiences with us and those help us to heal faster too.

      Another great article dealing with human emotions. From following your work I know that you are a strong minded person who appreciates nature and her wonders.Any one who embraces nature is ,in my opinion , a good and reliable person, who has many feelings which you express so well in your work. Voted up, interesting and useful.

      "Forgotten how to be happy." What a tragedy for those people.

      Glad for you Devika, that you learned how to process your situation, and take the necessary steps to move on. You have a positive, resilient spirit. Cheers!
