Moving Forward When Life Changes
Updated: Apr 21, 2021
Divorces happen, people move on, others die. Money and jobs will come and go. If you live long enough your health and body will change. It goes with the territory of being human. The fact that you are still here gives you an advantage. Don't look back. Look straight ahead! Decide to use all of your knowledge, skills, experiences in your life. Use the lessons from your mistakes, defeats and setbacks to start over again.
Life changes. You may not have the same life as before but you can still enjoy your life! Breathe. You are going to be okay. Breathe. Remember that you have been in this emotional state or similar before. You have been this uncomfortable, anxious or scared and you have survived. Breathe. Know that you can survive this too. These feelings will not break you. They are painful but you can sit with them and they will pass. Not right away but sometime soon they are going to fade. When they do you will look back at this moment in life and wonder why you doubted your abilities and resilience.
I know it feels unbearable right now but just keep breathing; again and again, it will help you move forward.
