Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom to move ahead to the next level in your life. I am here to tell you that it is not a fun place to be in, but there are some things that you can do right now to help you get to the light at the end of the tunnel.
If you feel like you are in a rut and don’t know what to do next, here is a starting point.
1) Accept responsibility for where you are.
The decisions you made in the past somehow played a part in you being in the space you are in right now in your life. Own those decisions and understand where you went wrong so you don’t face those same lessons over and over again.
2) Let go of everything.
Sometime you have to shy away from everything to regain yourself back. Let go of the negative habits, the naysayers, the bad influences, and even your own negative thoughts. It won’t be easy, but it will damn well be worth it.
3) Stop playing the blame game.
Even if it wasn’t ALL your fault, you played a role in it. Even if it was just your reaction to something that happened, it still played a part. Even if you listened to your friend and things didn’t go right, you still played a part in it. You will NEVER move ahead in your life if you are constantly blaming others.
4) Use rock bottom as your foundation to rebuild.
You have a new opportunity, a second chance, to get it right. Build a strong foundation and you will weather any storm that comes. A weak foundation can seem stable for a while and when the littlest storm comes can crumble in an instant.
5) Allow yourself to feel what you are feeling.
It probably won’t feel good and it may even hurt a bit, but when you allow yourself to feel, you allow yourself to start healing. When you mask your feeling they only get worse and even unbearable.
6) Make peace with where you are.
I am not saying accept where you are and get comfortable, but I am saying embrace the space in your life where you are at this moment and acknowledge that you are working to grow and move to a better space.
7) Stop comparing yourself to everyone else.
Few people live up to the Fasad they portray on social media. While you are comparing yourself to someone else’s end, that exact point may only be your starting point, but you feel you are behind or not enough because you are not there yet. Your journey is your journey….and no one else can compare to that.
8) Stop closing yourself off from others.
A solid support system will help you stay motivated and accountable.
9) Realize this darkness won’t least forever.
There is light at the end of the tunnel. This is just a page in the book of your life, it’s time to turn the page.
10) Recreate your life.
So what your life in the past went to hell. This is a new chapter a blank page…What are you going to fill it with?
