Before deciding to heal yourself, make sure to heal your thoughts. The first step of letting go is to let go of all the thoughts that have stopped you from being you. Living in the past will not earn you anything. You can never move on with a burden of the past on your mind. Physically you are in the present. Mentally you are still stuck in the last goodbye, betrayal, and heartbreak. If you are not ready to give up on these thoughts, you will carry these vibes wherever you go. You will be standing in the middle of a spectacular valley but your mind might be caged in the jail of the past.
Don’t let the memories of the past storms haunt you anymore. Rather, use that thunder to light up your nights. Be your own cloud and be your own rain. Let your inner light shine for you like a rainbow. Turn every pain into a motivation to fly. Turn all the bad vibes into lullabies that comfort your soul. It’s not easy but it’s possible. Ask yourself what’s more important, your peace or a bawl for someone who has never cared. Learn to leave your thoughts behind when you embark on the journey of self-healing.

Turn the regrets into motivation. Take responsibility for every little thing. Because there is no general meaning of life. Life gives different roles to all people. We should act accordingly. And our sufferings should be worthful. No matter how hard and dark the time comes, the perception towards that can literally change the scenario. Gordon W. Allport says,
“The neurotic who learns to laugh at himself may be on the way to self-alignment, perhaps to cure”.
It seeks to explain the human condition as one in constant search of meaning. Suffering is ubiquitous and inescapable, and man must constantly fight to remain worthy of his suffering by leading a meaningful life – to justify his existence despite all its pathologies. The pursuit of purpose, not power or pleasure, is the antidote to suffering.
Romans 8:28 (KJV) lets us know that all things work together for the good….it is up to us to see the good in every situation. To know there is purpose in the pain, on the other side of what you are going through is a promise and you will prevail. Let the healing begin…
