“When you let go of what was not meant to be, you clear a path for good stuff to find you.” Kemmy Nola
There is a battle going on inside. What do you do with it? You can’t think straight. It is consuming you. It really hurts. How do you begin to take control to free yourself?
Have you considered a pet? You know, dog, cat? Don’t laugh! Animals need love too. I know, you can’t believe I’m saying what I say when you are in the state that you are in.
How long have you been in that state? Have you asked yourself “why have I allowed this to go on so long?”
I remember when I was in that same state of emotional turmoil. What was wrong with me? I was selfish, self-centered, and only concerned about the me, me, I, I, of my Life.
“How could you do this to ME? Do you realize how much it hurts?” Turn that around, put that shoe on the other foot. Do you know everyone is trying to get their own needs met? You are just a casualty of relationships and life.
Yes, you do need something to help you get over the hurdle. It’s called emotional survival. How do you begin to work your way through it all?
Surviving battles with emotional issues requires an action plan. You have some choices; a pet, volunteer in your local community, or do something that requires you to step outside of your emotions. The best thing I ever did in my deepest mess was to begin volunteering.
I wasn’t ready for a pet. I really didn’t want to train or care for anything. I just wanted to wallow in my own misery, and so I did.
But there came a day when I decided to go do something, and that was to volunteer. I can hear you saying, “What type of volunteering?” It doesn’t matter. Search for volunteer opportunities and see what resonates with you.
Just this act alone, is a practical way to get up and get going. . . the search.
Why did this work? It took my mind off of me and my needs, helped me to re-focus on something else, or others. I was able to sort out my feelings, to see that my situation was not as hopeless as I thought. It helped to pull me out of my mental state.
It was amazing. Suddenly, it was no longer the end of the world; I had hope. I have to admit volunteering was probably a better choice than a pet at that time. So don’t buy a dog or cat and when you come to yourself, neglect or get rid of the animal.
Now it’s up to you. Excuses, yes, you can come up with a few: “I don’t have time. I don’t want to. What would I do? That’s just not me.”
Well, all I have to say is, “no one can help you until you are willing to help yourself. I will pray for your release and that your mindset changes.”
“Loneliness and emotional pain can be a prison, but God is nearer than you think. He has heard your cries and healing is already taking place.”
Let me know what you think.
Keep the faith,
