We often go through life with hidden heartaches, buried beneath the surface, but close enough to cause us heartache. Every day we try to find something to numb the pain. The heartache, however, is always there. It never goes away. And we end up miserable because of it.
I know this because I lived with buried emotions for most of my life. Day after day, the pain, heartache, and shame chipped away at me. Still, I would not allow the emotions to surface. I didn’t want to deal with them. On the other side of the pain, heartache, and shame, however, is freedom and peace.
Once we allow the emotions to surface, and deal with them, then they no longer have the power to hurt us again. Most of the time, all we need is a new perspective anyway. We can be a slave to our victim mindset, or rise from the rumble and become a survivor. Most of the time, we are not truthful in our story anyway. We only see if from our victim’s mindset.
Whatever the problem, we need to remember that we survived. Today, is a new opportunity. In order to fully live in today, we need to overcome the heartaches of yesterday. One of the ways I was able to do this was by writing it all down. It helped me so much to get all of the pain and heartache out. Once my story was recorded, I was able to see it with a new perspective.
Now I tell that same story to help people all over the world. I was able to overcome the heartache, pain, and shame and you can, too. Don’t allow the pain to destroy you. Seek help.
So often we are the barrier standing in the way of what we want in our lives. When we stop being sad that it happened to us, and become grateful for the life that we have right now, then we can change the story that we are telling ourselves, and overcome it all.
Our life is a precious gift. Enjoy it!
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33 KJV
