"Beauty in Your Pain"
Make no mistake about it there is beauty in your pain! The pain of being broke, the pain of being repeatedly abused, the pain of being deceived, the pain of being an outcast tossed aside like trash and even quite possibly the worse pain of them all; being fatherless and/or motherless which can sting you to your core. Knowing that two individuals came together to make you, but neither felt the need to stick around either physically or mentally to provide you with much needed love and affection.
But I’m here to tell you that despite all those things that seem unbearable that may have caused you to be whoever you are at this moment, it’s not ALL bad. How do I know you ask? Well hmmm let’s see, you are reading this blog aren’t you? That in itself says you are alive willing and able to seek knowledge and wisdom in order to elevate yourself on some level, that takes a little thing I like to call HOPE!
I also know firsthand what it’s like to be in some of the above mentioned situations and look at me I’m just as beautiful as the sun is bright...LOL. And I’m here to give you some pointers on what has helped me get through certain levels of hurt and hope it can help you too.
*First of all acknowledge whatever may have happen as not being your fault, forgive and let live.
*Second, don’t go accepting vague reminisce of what “may” look like what you want, only accept what you desire and deserve (and trust me YOU DESERVE the BEST).
*Third, though some of your pain may not have been physical (if that’s the case), you still need to heal properly and seek professional help when necessary (NO SHAME in allowing someone to assist you when needed)
*Fourth, pause when you need to and enjoy quiet moments alone with yourself, with endless amounts of laughter, love and crying to cleanse your soul.
And last but not least…
LOVE YOURSELF as only YOU know how....and remember there IS beauty in your pain and that BEAUTY IS YOU!!!
