Robin Williams is a prime example of the fact that regardless of the way a person seems in public, you have no idea of the troubles they may be facing behind closed doors.
Always, always, ALWAYS be kind.
I guess everyone deals with things differently. Personally, I think it’s best to make sure you balance your time properly. If you feel upset then cry! Tears are a natural stress relief and it’s important to face your emotions and deal with them properly and mindfully or you won’t progress forwards in an emotionally healthy state. Write things down, it can help you to make sense of them and take a weight off your mind. But also do realise that everything happens for a reason, wouldn’t you rather that you were with someone who wouldn’t give up on you? Or perhaps it was a toxic relationship, either way there is a reason that things ended, sometimes good things end so better things can begin. There’s something so much better around the corner, you just need to heal first.
Now the more fun part is ensuring you surround yourself with love and positivity. Go out with your friends, go drink (if you’re old enough and like to!) and dance and do fun stuff and ENJOY YOURSELF! See family. Talk to people if you want to, it really does help. Go to awesome places. It’s good to face your emotions but ensure that you balance your time. Make time for friends and fun and just live your life as fully as you can! Who knows, maybe you’ll go on a road trip somewhere and meet the love of your life that you wouldn’t ever have known existed without this breakup. There is so much good in what can temporarily seem bad. And everything IS temporary, take baby steps if you need to but just know that each day is a day closer to healing, and you have the power to make every single day a new beginning. X
Hi Emma :) just wondering whether you could recommend some books to do with consciousness, spirituality etc..? I'm interested in reading up about it but don't know where to start oxox
Hello :) yeah sure! I tend to always recommend the same ones to people beginning to get into this kinda stuff, the first one I read was ‘Being Peace’ by Thich Nhat Hanh. It’s a book about mindfulness that reads so gracefully, as he’s a Buddhist Zen master and has the most beautiful way of wording things. ‘Mindfulness in Plain English’ by Bhante Gunaratana is another brilliant starting point, it also begins with an introduction to mindfulness but is primarily about mindfulness meditation so depending on whether you’d like to get into that or not, it’s another book I’d hugely recommend.
Or you could go for Eckhart Tolle’s ‘The Power of Now’, it’s become a classic and is really a great starting point, but if you decide to read that then DEFINITELY make sure you read the follow up, ‘A New Earth - Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose’. It’s absolutely brilliant, one of the best books I’ve ever read!
Basically, I’d look into mindfulness first and foremost. It will change your life and you’ll look at everything so differently. Then begin meditating as mindfulness meditation in itself will bring everything further on and the changes you’ll see in your life will just blow your mind! Then from there you can look further into things, learn about chakras, practise yoga, whatever you want really. I’ve also read about Buddhism, Taoism, Hinduism. And at some point please read ‘Be Here Now’ by Ram Dass! It’s my favourite book in the world and I just want to read everything he’s ever written. But it touched upon several religious texts and ideologies so I think it’s perhaps best to have a basic understanding first, but that’s up to you, of course. You can go in whichever direction feels right, trust your intuition! Hope this has helped. Happy reading! X
