It’s not the load that breaks you down; it’s the way you carry it.

Emotional

Life has a way of subconsciously testing our emotional strength. No matter how strong you’re mentally and physically, there would be times when you would feel weak and vulnerable. During such times when you’re at your weakest, remember your priorities in life. It would show you the guiding light and help you pull yourself up. Feeling low is completely normal, and it is what makes us human. We all go through phases of our life when we are emotionally imbalanced and vulnerable. The sad and negative events we go through in life, whether it is personal or professional, can be hurting and emotionally destructive.

The memories of such events and the emotional baggage it gifts us stay for a long time, and sometimes forever. It is completely fine to grieve or be hurt. However, you cannot let the emotional baggage to weigh on you forever or impact your life in a way that it traps you in a dark phase forever. Keep going when the going gets tough, and time will heal the wounds. While it is easier said than done, it is the effort you put in carving your attitude during dark times that will help you move forward in the right direction. Be willing to put in the effort that helps you look at the bright side. There is always light at the end of the tunnel, but you must be willing to keep moving forward to see it.

Emotional

Negative emotions are attention-seeking emotions, and it feeds on positive energy. More attention you give to the negative emotions in your life, more it would start to weigh you down. If you don’t keep a check on how the negative emotions are controlling your thoughts and life, it will make it impossible for you to move ahead. On the contrary, it just might start pulling you back. More importance you give to your weakness, negativities around you, and failures, more it would push you into the process of self-loathing.

The trick is to follow the routine of getting up, dress up, and show up. Find a purpose that helps you stay motivated and inspired to carry on regardless of the challenges you face on the way. Never lose faith in yourself, no matter how many times you lose because there are millions of examples across the globe where people had found success just when they were about to give up. Identifying your weaknesses and carrying the emotional baggage of the past with you is not a crime. It is how you handle it that makes the difference. Channelize the negative energy it emits for positive action that would lighten your future.

One of the best ways to get through the emotional turmoil you are in is to try and change your perspective. There are many instances in life when the solution to your problems might be right in front of you, but due to the overwhelming emotional imbalance, you can’t see it. Change in perspective helps in seeing things with clarity, especially the things that weren’t visible earlier. We have to let go off our past to focus on the future.

We cannot change our past, but we can always change our future by doing what needs to be done at present. Do not let your mind and soul linger in the past. There is no place for negativity in life because it sucks out the positive energy inside you. It would render you incapable of pursuing your dreams or do things that you love. Allow positivity to enter your life by changing your perspective. Change the direction of your thoughts that may be currently flowing in the wrong direction. We only face the problems in our lives that we are capable of handling, and you have to embed it into your system that you can. Don’t feel overwhelmed by problems but instead get excited to find a way out, and you’ll start seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
