Life is like a volatile element, it will react at the wrong time, leaving you to deal with the most unpredictable situations. Some people go through so much shit but I guess they are just stronger than us, they will swim right through these situations, making the most of them. While people like me, the emotional lot will be stuck in the trauma. Days after the storm had passed, I kept reliving it, over and over again. It was like a nightmare I had no control over. I had trapped myself up in a box and I was too afraid to get out of it. I cut myself, off from family and friends, actually anyone that wanted to help me. I kept beating myself up for things I had no control over. I made no effort to break through the monogamous relationship I had developed with my insecurities.
All I needed was purpose and fulfilment in my life, I was crying one day, I was so lonely and in that moment I decided it was time to reconstruct myself, because the first person to help me would be me. The whole world combined wouldn’t be able to help me if I blocked every attempt they made. Here is a list of things I did that changed my life forever.
1. Do it for yourself
Yes, family and friends matter a lot, but you need to understand that you are special, you are important, you matter to people, and your presence makes this world a better place. You need to acknowledge the fact that you cannot be benefitting in any of these ways if you keep yourself locked in the handcuffs of misery. Change requires perseverance, time and hard work; nothing is easy, but keep in mind, nothing is impossible either! You just need to find the strength within yourself to make a difference.
