5 things to keep in mind when you feel broken inside

"It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light" - ARISTOTLE

Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them.

When we’re feeling broken inside, we tend to take on a pessimistic view of the world. We see darkness and we allow ourselves to give in to darkness. One of the first steps towards healing is to surround yourself with positivity. Think of how you can still go outside and enjoy a sunny day, smell the beautiful flowers, and smile at a stranger. Remember that the world isn’t working against you. There are new days ahead; there is always a tomorrow.

Focusing on doing what you Love

"You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus" - MARK TWAIN

Focusing on doing what we love allows us to pick up the broken pieces and make ourselves feel whole again. As for how to do that? Start by just breathing. Go outside, get some sunlight, and take a walk through nature.

Find that teeny-tiny figurative candle in your life to light the way through the tunnel. Find something to look forward to, even if it’s small. Break your day down into small bites, and look forward to what’s right in front of you.

Live with Emotions

Learn how to stay centered in the grip of strong emotions and use them to deepen the understanding of yourself. How we feel at this moment often shape the way we perceive the quality of our life 

No Bad Feelings
When we label our feelings as good or bad, we create the tendency to hold on to our pleasant feelings, while at the same time develop the compulsion to resist the unpleasant ones. But emotions and feelings by themselves are harmless. Every feeling tries to tell us something that we need to deal with, or something that we need to know about ourselves.
The first step obviously is to acknowledge your feeling. Don’t deny, suppress or pretend that it is not there. Be fully aware of your feeling. Call it by its name. If anger is brewing inside, admit that you are angry. If guilt is what you are going through, then tell yourself you are feeling guilty.
Be fully present
After receiving the messenger, you let the messenger do his job. You don’t slam the door in its face without waiting for it to finish what it has been sent to do. That means you need to stay with your emotion

Keep in Mind that nothing is permanent

It seems that most of us are constantly fighting for things to be 100% secure and never-changing, but that’s not really how it works. Everything in life is temporary and ever-changing. Our very lives are temporary. Nothing is guaranteed. The challenge in life is learning to embrace, accept, and respect that fact.

Your life should be enriched by the temporary. Don’t take anything for granted. The time you have with your loved ones will not last forever, so make every second meaningful and rich. The job you have today may not be the job you have next year, and that’s okay. There is thrill and peace in not knowing.
The beauty in life is balance. The wonder in life is that we don’t understand everything. Life can be fascinating and joyful if you let go a bit. You need to be comfortable with the fact that everything could change.

Accept the things you cannot change, and change the things that you can

There will always be circumstances and situations in our lives that are beyond our control, but one thing that we can control is our reactions to these things. We can let pain and suffering shape us for better or worse. You cannot change your past, but you are in charge of your future, and your happiness.
