Sorry if I am being blunt or rude but if you’re reading this, you probably agree with me.
Why else would you be hanging out on a page called I don’t want to be stressed?
Maybe because you don’t want to be stressed?
Every one of us have a story…. Most of us have some kind of negative story that includes trauma, loss, violence, abuse or extreme stress. Some unfortunate people have all of those things included in their story.
But guess what?
You’re still here – sometimes against huge odds – to tell the story and to do something about it.
Whatever happened in the past is your story. We can wish the past didn’t happen but that doesn’t undo it.
We can wish that whatever happened to us did not affect who we are today – that won’t help either.
What you are is a survivor.
An amazing survivor with a story of resilience to tell. Because despite everything – you made it this far.
Your mission now is take it further.
You are not your past. You are not your old story. You are no longer that victim or that child that was hurting.
It is time to rewrite your story – to step out of your comfort zone and try new things and new ways of doing things.
Take responsibility for your actions, your emotions and the consequences of your behaviours now.
Let your actions, emotions and behaviours of the past stay in the past.
Do things in small steps – one step at a time.
Be gentle on yourself – those small steps often go backward or stay in one place. This doesn’t mean that you’re failing – just don’t give up.
One day you will look back at this time and marvel that you ever doubted yourself.
You can and you will do this!
