CAN YOU BE HAPPY

AFTER YEARS OF PAIN?

BY TAVIA BARNES

We begin each day with dread and depression because all we focus on and feel is pain from years of abuse and the scars seem to never diminish. Well it is possible to be happy and here are a few tips.
Start by making a vision board, chose words that are inspiring to you and words that will speak life into you.

Place this vision board in a place where you will see it every day, like your bedroom.

You will see those words every morning when you are starting your day and every evening when you are ending your day.

Seeing these words daily will begin to manifest itself into you.
Meditate, begin and end your day sitting for 10 minutes and control your breathing and focus on your breathing.

At first your mind will wander but imagine sitting somewhere quiet, like the beach.

All you hear is the water and waves crashing, no voices nothing but quiet and relax taking deep breaths.

Speak positive things to yourself, tell yourself you will have an amazing day and work at doing that.

When you see a person say hello and compliment them. As you speak positive you will feel positive also.

 

Write down your pain…it doesn’t have to be perfect spelling or punctuation just write your anger and pain…. write until you can’t write anymore…and then take that paper and burn it. Burn away the pain and sorrow…and breath and release.

Go for a walk…. I know…you hate walking…but when you walk you push that pain to your feet and walk on it and when your done you would have released all the anger and stress you carry, and you will feel better.

Forgive, yes, I know easier said than done, but forgive yourself and those who have hurt you and move forward. You say you can’t, but you are…every day your putting one foot in front of the other and doing it every day. You are needed on this earth to help others to survive this pain!!

So, heal, release, cry, forgive and let go and keep smiling, because you are a survivor of your trauma and before you know it…. your friends and family will say…why are you so happy. It’s because you let go and began enjoying life

Yes, you can be happy after years of pain and despair.

Just allow yourself to let go of the pain and heal and love yourself!
