5 Things To Remember When You Feel Broken Inside

5 Things To Remember When You Feel Broken Inside


“Life experience is what defines our character, even if it means getting your heart broken or being lied to. You know, you need the downs to appreciate the ups. Going on the adventure or taking that risk is important” – Nev Schlman

For everyone to live there lives to the fullest the onl method we can achieve this is by overcoming the hard days and challenges that life throws at us. We need to experience the bad days and pain.the betrayal, the adversity, the feelings of hopelessness and the despair in life- because how else do we learn about who we are?
This is only way for us to learn how to be  courageous,hopeful, resilient and optimistic about life and our future.
Though we do not like it, everyone feels broken at some point on their life. Often when we find ourselves at thi stage of despair we do not know what to do and so we can end up living our life through our fear, regret, pain, disillusionment and sadness. This is not the way our lives are meant to be lived.
When you are feeling broken inside remember these 5 things as they will help you discover your courage and build your resilience so that you can step out and embrace the joy of living a life you love.

1. Remember To Embrace Your Power Of Choice


“Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.” – Kevyn Aucion
Using your power of choice will enable you to change your approach to life from one where you languish in pain to one where you flourish with joy and hope.
Using your power of choice empowers and strengthens your ability to take action and to make decisions.
Your power of choice is a gift that you have within you that if you choose to use, will transform your life.

2. Remember To Be Present

“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”  Mother Teresa
Your thoughts fuel how you feel about your life. When you feel broken in your life, it will be your negative thoughts that dictate your feelings of sadness, disillusionment and unhappiness. When you feel joy and happiness, your positive thoughts of hope and self belief will support more of these feelings.
The key to managing your negative thoughts is to practice trying to distance yourself from these thoughts and observe them rather than react automatically to them.
Identify those thoughts that will draw you in and create confusion and inertia within you. Accept that these thoughts do not serve you well and work towards having more control over them.
Label the type of thought you are having rather than paying attention to its content. Observe your thoughts and if you notice a thought that is judging (how good or bad the situation is) label it “judging.
If you are criticising yourself for doing something wrong then label that thought “criticising”. Then ask yourself how long you want to spend criticising and blaming yourself. My suggestion is that you spend zero time doing this activity.

3. Remember To Focus On What Brings You Joy

“Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain” – Joseph Campbell
When you are feeling despair, frustration and hopelessness it is easy to forget the good things that are happening in your life. In fact, if you are consumed by negativity you will start to believe that there is nothing good in your life.
Focusing on what in your life is good and what brings you joy is an important step to you changing your life. The more you focus on the good in your life the more hopeful you become.
Positivity and hope are contagious and the more you celebrate this the better you will feel about your life.


4. Remember To Ask For Help

“Asking for help does not mean that we are weak or incompetent. It usually indicates an advanced level of honesty and intelligence.”  Anne Wilson Schaef
Asking for help is not a sign of weakness. When we are feeling so broken inside, we want to hide away from the world. Sometimes it is because we feel embarrassed or we believe that people won’t understand what we are going through.
The support, advice and encouragement from others helps us to overcome adversity and solve problems in our life.
It is the energy and wisdom from friends, family and supporters that fuels our courage and our desire to take action to change our lives for the better.

5. Remember To Accept & Anticipate Change

“It is not the most intellectual of the species that survives; it is not the strongest that survives; but the species that survives is the one that is able best to adapt and adjust to the changing environment in which it finds itself.”   Dr Leon C. Megginson
In today’s world of constant change it is hard to hold on to who you are and manage the complexity and unpredictability of life. The one constant thing in our lives today is change.
Instead of fighting the inevitability of change, learn how to accept it. Embrace change and know that by doing this your life can only get better.
Resisting change will fuel the negative energy that keeps you feeling broken and discouraged about life.
