Letting go of past or ongoing situations isn't always as easy as just letting go, the emotions that comes with sadness, anger, feeling lost can take over and leave us drained. It can lead to depression and our lives can be altered dramatically, so what can we do?
Talk to someone you trust about how you are feeling and about the situation should you feel you want to discuss what is happening or has happened. This could be your Dr or friend etc.
Take each day as it comes and don't put pressure on yourself to get fixed overnight.
Maybe you like to have a yearly plan so you can set your goals and work towards them.
Write down how you feel, sometimes letting it all flow onto paper can be a huge release, you can always burn or shred the paper if you don't want anyone to see it.
Be more positive towards yourself, how often do we blame ourselves for something we had no control over, how often do we put ourselves down. By thinking these negative thoughts we eventually become them. Even if just once a day you compliment yourself on something you like about yourself or what you feel you are good at. You'll be surprised at how your confidence will grow over time.
Just remember to be kind to yourself, life isn't always easy and sometimes crap happens and we get pulled in without a lifeboat. Don't feel like you have to suffer because there is help out there and it's important to get that help, here in the UK we have the Citizens Advice Bureaux for advice and of course your Dr, maybe you have a good friend or family member that can be there for you. The one thing we need to learn to let go is not giving ourselves enough credit for the positive and good things we have achieved so far in life, you are stronger than you think and I have every faith that you are able to make the changes you need in your life...... learn to love you, you are worth it.
