Sometimes life throws at us things we do not expect. For instance, it could be some losing his job, some getting heartbreak from a relationship, failing in business or even have health challenges. So we will be looking at how to receive healing when life hurts you.
Emotional pains don’t just leave immediately, they take a while before going and for some people the period might be so long.
But you can actually do your best to manage the pain and make it work for your own good. That’s what we will be discussing in this post.
It is important we discuss this because a lot of people carry life’s hurt for every long period without them knowing and this affects the way they respond to life in general.
For instance someone who has been heartbroken before might find it hard to trust again.
Let us look at some steps on how we can get healing while we are hurt.
Feel the pain
When you are facing life challenges, it is normal for you to have emotional pain. If you release yourself to feel this pain, the faster you are likely to get healed.
If you don’t release yourself to feel the pain and lie to yourself that there’s no pain, then the pain might take a long time before going.
When we go through emotional trauma, we feel like crying and the right thing to do then is to cry.
It isn’t a bad thing to cry when you are having emotional pain. In short crying will help you recover from the pain faster.
But that doesn’t mean you should cry without control to the extent that you embarrass yourself before others. You can just go to your closet or your bedroom to cry and by so doing; you will start recovering from the pain.
Talk to others
When you are going through challenges in life, you should take out time to discuss with others around you.
You can discuss about different things with them, you can also discuss about your issues with them. You never can tell maybe they could proffer a solution to what you are facing.
It’s also good to discuss with other people so that you can pour out your mind and by so doing you will begin to recover fast.
Increase your knowledge
Knowledge is one of the most important things you need in life.
The reason why a lot of people fail in life is because they lack the required knowledge.
If you fail to get the desired knowledge, you will keep failing and you will keep getting hurt.
For instance you will see some people who have married and gotten divorce more than twice. In a situation like that, you should know that the person lack the required knowledge and skills to maintain good relationship with their spouses.
Sometimes getting the right knowledge might be all you need to heal the wound that life gives to you.
Imagine being financially free after a long period of being in debt. That is a big healing; the joy of success can erase the pain of failure in your life, which is why you need fill your mind with the right knowledge that can make you succeed.
Learn from your situation
You might think it is only dogs that go back to their vomit but some humans also go back to their vomit.
When you keep making same mistake, it means you are going back to your vomit.
Mistakes are meant to be lessons for us and not to be repeated. When you repeat your mistakes, it is like repeating a class in high school, which is not a good thing.
Some people feel so comfortable about making mistakes and they tell you that it is just a weakness.
You shouldn’t feel comfortable making same mistakes instead, you should learn from your mistakes and if possible write it out.
In life, we just have to keep moving. You can’t say you will stop taking actions because you’ve had bad experiences in the past.
Success only comes to those that don’t give up while the result for people that give up is failure.
The regrets most people usually have at a later time in life are the actions they didn’t take. When they look back, they feel they could have taken more steps.
You shouldn’t wait for those time of regrets instead you should put in your best into everything you do and just keep moving on to you haven’t gotten the desired result yet.
Pray to God
Prayer is the master key that can open any door. We need to pray continually because when we pray we get a sign of relief and peace and this makes our healing process faster.
Prayer is simply just communicating with God and that is the best person you discuss all your issues with because he has all the answers.
