1. Realize your future is different from your past
We cannot move forward in our lives if we are constantly clinging to our past experiences. Sometimes people build walls as a means of safety, to avoid being hurt. This is not the correct way to handle feelings. If we don’t deal with our feelings at the surface, they will never go away and as a result we miss out on so much that life has to offer. Learning to overcome your fears is most important. Learning to believe and have faith in yourself and others as well is healing. Take the leap of faith, live your life to the fullest!
2. Understand your values
Take time to reflect on you. Use this time to understand yourself and what you seek and desire in any relationship or commitment. It is also important to understand your worth. Set boundaries on how people treat you. Set limits on what is acceptable and what is not. Don’t let people cross your boundaries. Be brave and stand up for yourself and what you value. To protect yourself from being hurt, follow these steps. You set guidelines for yourself and you live by them. Don’t let others mistreat and use you, that is a violation and a red flag for possibly being hurt again.
3. Nurture Yourself
This is very important. Make special time for you. Allow yourself time to heal and truly understand your inner most feelings. Find things that bring your joy back and do them. These steps will help you feel whole again. Relax! Allow yourself time for this, it is necessary for your emotional an physical health. While it might not always seem like it, you are the boss of your life. Making time to nurture yourself is priority because it will enrich your life immeasurably.
4. Learn to trust your intuition
Listen to your gut feelings, they are usually correct. As attractive as someone might be, or a new situation might appear, move slowly. Learn to listen to your inner voice, it doesn’t lie! Learning to connect your intuition and being mindful of your situations allows us to be present in the moment and make sound decisions in our lives. If something feels off, it usually is. Our intuition sends us these signals, learn to notice them as they are red flags and you should remove yourself from the situation.
You can learn to start tuning into your intuition by simply connecting with your body; your inner being. More often than not, listening to your gut feeling will make the difference between months or years of struggling from making a poor choice or bad decision. In closing it is important that you don’t try to protect yourself by mistrusting; don’t build walls between yourself and others.
Don’t live a lonely and unfulfilled life without the meaning of solid relationships. You can and you will move past the heartache of broken trust. Becoming more confident with yourself will in turn give confidence in trusting others. Be open with trusting your heart, your intuition and even another relationship.
