“What does one do? How do you recover when life crushes you and you feel devastation?” Events can occur in life that you may not have seen coming and it can make you question, “Why did this happen?” Life can deliver many hardships be it heartbreak, injury, illness and death. It takes time and you need to give yourself space before you can recover and regroup. There is a time for advice and answers but that may not be something that is to be given or known right away.
The pain can take over and it’s important to busy your mind to gain some relief. Do something that takes your mind off your thoughts such as hiking, reading, dancing, talking about other things even it it’s just for a few moments.
Suffering can bring on blame and resentment. Take time to reflect and learn lessons that can help you. This may take time but learning from devastation can make you stronger, resilient and wiser.
Some wallow in their devastation and it then defines them and stops them from living their lives. You have to decide – do you stop living your life or make a step to move forward and get back into living? It’s not easy and I advise baby steps at first.
