There has been a moment in everyone’s life where they feel abandoned. It could be by a parent, friend or lover. This moment can conjure feelings of anger, confusion and loneliness. It’s important to confront your feelings before they manifest into something negative.
Write a letter to the person or people that hurt you. Thank them for leaving you. This letter is not meant to be sent, it’s for your own empowerment. The purpose of this letter is not to break the other person down; it’s to build you up.
The parting of ways, under any circumstance, offers a time of reflection. Question yourself. Was this person a parasite to your life? Did you like you person you were or were becoming with them, if not why? What could you have done better and what did you learn from the lost relationship?
We often have these bad people and relationships in our lives that we don’t realize until we’re out of them. Thank this person for leaving you and giving you a chance to renew yourself. Save this letter and whenever you feel down, read it.
Pain is a natural emotion to loss. Whether that person physically or emotionally hurt you, realize the person did not take anything away from you. Use this pain to do something positive.
If you love to sing, sing a song. If you love to write, write articles for the examiner like your favorite author. This time is a moment to recreate you in a positive way. If you were a person that was never happy with their weight and always wanted to get into fitness but never could, now is the time. Not to mention, if your pain was caused by a break up, your ex will be kicking themselves when they see your new and improved body. If you always wanted to have a better career or achieve more from your current job, go for it. Success is the best revenge.
The point is, take power away from the person that left you and caused you agony. Every person you meet is either a lesson or a blessing. You learn so much about your character in times of distress.
For any women reading this, keep this quote in the back of your head. “You can break down a woman temporarily, but a real woman will always pick up the pieces, rebuild herself, and come back stronger than ever.”
