“The only way out is through” (Robert Frost) So don’t give up, you’re almost there. It takes as long as it takes.
If you are going through Hell Keep going.
Life is It’s not a panacea of perfect days or a bed of roses.
The waters can be rough and we get tumbled and scratched by thorns picking roses or blackberries, trying to taste the sweetness of the moment and days gone by.
If you have ever struggled with anxiety, depression, or any array of mental health dis-eases, an injury or medical condition; rest assured you are not alone. Covid can heighten and illuminate your struggles with any one of the above, in these surreal times.
If you’re going through hell keep going and reach out to someone to support you.
When life hands you lemons and believe you me, it will; Are you going to pucker up butter cup and give me a kiss (better not in Covid or I might push you.. ha) or are you going to make the most of it? Just add some agave or jaggery, a substitute I recently heard about. Stevia will do and yes, sugar is ok too, and make the most of it. A little sweetness always helps in a bad patch unless you’re a sugar addict of course.
If you have ever stubbed your toe or baby finger then you know exactly what I mean. You never knew a tiny toe could give you so much pain until you stub it. Or have you ever slept in bed with a mosquito?
Worse yet, have you suffered a major surgery or gone through an accident or perhaps the worst depression you have ever gone through in your life?
Everyone’s hell is their own and yet everyone wants to compare there’s with their friends and some might not even understand how this could be so bad. Others feel guilty for it seemingly being so small of an issue and yet, it is putting them through so much purgatory; it’s their truth.
Hell is Hell ok, and it doesn’t matter what anyone else is going through.
This is precisely why I believe in heaven on earth or hell on earth.
There is no there. The devil is standing at your door and it’s up to you if you open it or not. If you choose to, take it’s little horns and embrace them and give it a name so you can let go of this little or big devil.
What you say to yourself matters.
Beating yourself up for having the feelings will keep them omniopressant.
So what to Do, when the devil is knocking on your door?
- Give it a face so you can look it in the eye and tell it to leave
and take your power back.
2. Lock it up and tell it you are sick and tired of this place.
3. Call someone and have a little chat.
4. Go for a walk and bring a leash and you can walk it right out of you or with it at your side. Soon you’ll make peace with this annoying monster. After all, the devil you know is better than the devil you don’t know.
5. Drown the bastard!!! Just blame it on the devil. Hey, the devil made you do it.
This will end and it is up to you to take good care of yourself daily and ride it out. Nothing lasts forever.
The best thing I have found when I’m going through hell is to:
- Stop beating myself up.
- Do affirmations in the morning and evening everyday.
- Trust the process.
- Love yourself no matter what.
- Get support and reach out!
Hell!!!! It with come and it will go but heaven is a place I want to spend more time, what about you? So make sure you are with people that can remind you “this too shall pass” encourage you and love you through it.
