If You Feel Suffocated, Just Let Things Go

It is not time that can heal the wounds of the heart, but it is because of our mind that we will never let go

If You Feel Suffocated, Just Let Things Go

Just when you feel painful enough, you will be able to put it down yourself.

Deep down in each of us, everyone has their wounds and hardships to endure. Saying that time will heal all, in fact, we just deceive ourselves. If not, why does time only heal this person but not the others?

There are people who suffer from misery, and yet, they solve it by negative choices such as violence against others, take revenge on life, seek out pleasures such as alcohol, stimulant drugs, gambling, sex ... to temporarily forget the pain in their heart and experience the feeling of "gloating" for a moment. Is it even more painful faking your happiness?

It turns out that time is unintentional, the only intentional thing is our mind. Only when the time has passed long enough, our feelings, our thoughts might change. Until our emotions are settled, the mind has a little peace, then we can be tolerated, be able to look wide, and let go of the sorrows and resentments in the past. Looking back, the past passed like a virtual dream, there was nothing to hold, suddenly we no longer wanted to persist. Therefore, it is not time that can heal the wounds of the heart, but it is because of our mind that we will never let go.

When we are too preoccupied with a problem, the thoughts in our minds are going around and around, just like being caught by an invisible rope and unable to get out of its scope. Therefore, we can no longer see anything new, and feel any better. Just like when we look at a small angle of view of the camera and rush to a conclusion about the whole thing. While such a tiny corner of the image cannot tell the whole truth, sometimes even distorts it, and the false conclusion can completely distort the true story.

Always moving and changing is the rule of the universe, of life. Knowing that we will understand that everything happened for a reason. We will no longer see something too important, no longer resentment when we can't achieve something, or miserable when losing what you love.

Let it go! It is not trying to forget, to ignore, to be resentful, to find a way to escape, but to use a normal mind to face it. We no longer want to control everything. It is no longer necessary to force things to happen according to our own will. When a thing goes, we can be calm because we understand "this has done its job in our lives, out of grace, will have to go".

When the mind is large, tolerant, and wise enough, one day, looking back on things that you once suffered, you can calmly smile and see how they were small, petty, and not worth making us suffer from the pain a for a long time. Like someone once told me: "When you come from an ant to become an elephant, the big stone once blocked the road and you could not overcome it, it turned out to be just a tiny grain of sand under your heel".

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.
