You want to turn back, but you can’t. What is happening? How did you ever allow yourself to feel these emotions?! You want to shut them back off…but it is too late. You are at the point of no return. You were so good at being the strong and positive one. You overcame several adversities and as a result, people come to you for support and strength. You thought you left all those hurtful things in the past. But did you really?
If you did not truly honor the time and healing you needed, then unfortunately things resurface. The longer you keep busy and ignore matters, the harder it will be in the long run. Inevitably, the floodgates of emotions fly open. You may feel out of control. Especially if you are used to holding it together. You wish you could turn back to the time when nothing bothered you, and you did not seem to care as much. Your mind does not know how to make sense of all these new feelings. You may even feel like a mess.
YOU CANNOT TURN BACK TIME
You cannot take back what was said and done. Although, we wish we could, we cannot change it. We can however make better choices moving forward. Also, the time lost or wasted is gone. The good news is that you are in full awareness of how precious each moment is. Make the most of this moment, from this day forward. It is never too late to say the things you need to say or do the things you need to do in order to live the life you are meant to.
BE PREPARED TO FEEL
You will feel things you never knew you felt. That is okay. The longer you kept things inside, the more intensely you will feel. Allow this process to happen. Don’t worry, you are strong. Think about all you have overcome already. Do not regress now…You already made it this far!
CRAVE THE TRUTH
As much as the truth hurts, it hurts more to be lied to. Wouldn’t you want to make better informed decisions? I am sure if you knew then, what you know know…you would not have made some of your past choices. Embracing the truth, prevents you from wasting time on the wrong person and lessens your hardships and pain.
FACE THINGS STRAIGHT ON
Do not avoid necessary confrontation. You can no longer ignore your feelings. They are toxic to keep them inside. No one likes confrontation. Knowing it will be worse later, if you do not deal with what is bothering you, should give you that extra push you need.
YOU WILL WANT TO TURN BACK
It is natural to want to give up and avoid dealing with these emotions. People tend to go where they feel comfortable and familiar. Even when you know things seem wrong, or that your life should be better…it seems easier. This is because you are used to it. Do not be deceived by this, or you will be stuck forever and never reach an extraordinary life. Change is hard, but you are worth it.
DO NOT TURN BACK
You can do this! You need to reach the point of no return, so you will not regress. You will see how much brighter your life will look.
Please keep at it. If you truly want to find peace and happiness, you need to get over this hump. If you want things to change, you cannot keep doing what you are doing. You need to try a different approach. Take the time to do the inner work. You do not want want to make the same mistakes. You deserve more. Once you make it through, your life will be much easier and happier. When you look back at your old life, you will wonder why you put up with so much? You will never want to turn back!
