1. Make peace with your past
so it won’t disturb your present. You are not your trauma. You are not your divorce. You are not your abuse. Past experiences do not define you. In essence you define you. Every thought, every motion, every feeling, word or action will define who you are and who you are to become… but nothing is set in stone.
2. What other people think of you
is none of your business. You can’t change it and you certainly can’t control it. What’s important is how YOU feel about yourself.
3. Time heals almost everything.
You just need to trust the process and give it time. Death, lost loves, arguments … it stays with us always but the ache becomes less intense as each day passes.
4. No one is in charge
of your happiness. Except you. It’s your responsibility to wake up each day and choose happiness.
5. Don’t compare your life to others
and don’t judge them. You have no idea what their journey is all about. Our lives are unique and our experiences are individual so be sure to live your own life with passion, purpose and no regrets.
6. Stop thinking too much.
Perhaps that comment you thought was hurtful was infact endearing. It’s good to look at things from different perspectives and angles but over analysing and thinking about it too much will just drain you.
You don’t own all the problems in the world.
