Even during stress and strife there’s a silver lining. Look for the higher purpose and find the strength behind its message to endure. How you perceive your situation depends on how wounded you will allow yourself to become. You can be restricted, or you can be harmed on a deeper level. The choice is up to you.
Everyone faces trials and trauma of some sort during their life. How you allow those situations to affect you will determine how deep their hurt cuts into your being. If all you see is despair, the deeper the wounds will be. But when you can rise above and see the bigger message, the easier it is to keep the deep cuts at bay.
It’s hard to do at the moment of tragedy. Everyone deals with trauma in different ways. Some dig deep, put the emotions aside and find the strength to endure and keep moving. While others allow the emotions to overwhelm them and keep them on their knees. Unable to see past the tragedy to what can be and how things will change.
By understanding the phases of grief, we can work our way through each traumatic situation in our lives, big and small, and move forward with strength and courage. The only real constant in the Divine Universe is that things change. How they change, how quickly they change, is entirely up to you.
Stop wallowing in self pity and get off your butt and get moving again. Remember someone in the world always has it worse than you. No matter how bad you think your situation is, someone else is going through something far worse and still fighting to move forward. If they can do it, you can too! Believe in yourself. Lean on the Divine Spirit you have in your life when things get tough. Pull what energy you need from that Divine presence in your life and you’ll find the energy to get up and get moving. You can do this! You simply need to take the first step.
Dealing With Trials & Grief –
Going through trials and trauma are not easy for anyone. The key is to not allow the past and actions of others to control you now or your future. We can’t go back and change the things we went through. But we can learn from them and heal ourselves in the process. My motto is: “You cannot change the past. You can only change the way you allow the past to affect your present and your future.” – Click the link to read more.
