No matter how bizarre or pathetic you feel about your situation have someone to help you deal with it.

Give yourself time:

As it is said, time is the best healer. Emotional healing is a process itself. Do not rush yourself through it nor let others force you through it. Moving on doesn’t take a day or two, it takes lots of little steps until you break free from your wounded self.

Always tell yourself that you have to take one step at a time. If yesterday was painful doesn’t mean that today will also be painful. Usually the hardships we suffer give better opportunity ahead. Give yourself time to heal and explore yourself.

Every ending is a new beginning:

A wise man said, ‘Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.’ Today is a new start and you have to treat it that way. Start thinking about what it can be instead of what it might have been. Always know that the past cannot be undone and there is no use in dwelling into it. Past gives us lessons to move on and learn from them. Have faith, take time and look towards the new beginnings in life!
