Yep! That’s right, EMPOWER YOURSELF and in doing so fight for yourself to recover from grief and loss by empowering yourself to do so…
Unfortunately, grief and the emotions it brings comes from our hearts, it’s our hearts that hurt and in doing so we have conflicting emotions of anger, frustration, happiness, sadness, strength, weakness, emptiness, joy, bewilderment, sorrow, etc etc etc in fact the list is endless and no two people experience the same symptoms of grief and no-one can possibly know or understand your own personal grief and loss because that belongs only to you and the relationship you had with the loved one you are experiencing grief and loss over.
At the same time, we experience a rational brain and it believes it’s in control of our consciousness. Even when you believe you are making rational decisions, the actual choice may, in reality be based on emotion which comes from our heart. Our rational brains want to rule us, its heart vs head and unfortunately, due to our ego’s often our rational brains win over and we can forget to listen to our hearts, which means we don’t actually deal with our emotions which come from our hearts, they just get over ruled by our heads and are quashed!
There are tools and techniques available to overcome this, but in the main we need to start listening to our hearts and our truth and to answer the question:
What do we want for ourselves?
This is a massive question to answer for ourselves and the only way I have found to answer it, is by first committing to finding and developing MY TRUTH, pushing the ego aside, because it is weighing you down. Time to start living your truth.
Being ready to live your life of truth and self acceptance. Most of us spend our days living to the expectations of others whether that is family, friends, work colleagues, instead of living our truth.
It is TIME TO OWN IT! TIME TO OWN YOUR TRUTH.
So how do we do this? I challenge you to question yourselves, are you living your truest life.
1) Accept who you are, push aside what others think or want you to be
2) Acknowledge who you are, and what do you stand for
3) Define your truth, this takes time and defining your truth, you may also need to undertake grief recovery so you can complete on your past grief and losses if it is holding you back. You may also need to audit your life to assess where you are versus where you want to be. Defining your truth of what you want for you, can be scary, but it can also be liberating, brave, challenging redefining your destiny and engineering and creating the future you, by living your truth. Stop and listen to your inner self, map it out, be creative, empower yourself as a person who CAN BE DO ANYTHING!
4) Live your life loud and proud, based on your truth of what you want for you. From experience I can tell you, this is hard work and you only get back what you put into developing you. However I know it will bring you happiness and joy, because by living your truth and being honest with yourself and those around you without ego or expectation can only be a recipe for success.
