I had to adjust the language I was using around my current circumstances.
“My life is falling apart” - things that were not working for me have slipped away so that I can keep moving toward my higher self.
“It can’t get much worse” - it could, if I lost my health, my pets, friends or family. It would be much worse if I had no place to stay and no money to feed myself. And it would also be worse if I let myself slip into pessimism and despair.
“I have nothing left” - this is probably the greatest lie. I have SO MUCH to be grateful for, and to be honest, I’m feeling that now more than ever.
The way we choose our language while healing is critically important. You are developing a narrative, a healing blueprint for future suffering, and the path you take will largely depend on the way you’ve been speaking to yourself. Make the language kind, and accurate.
All is not lost.
All is never lost.
