Words of wisdom and shared knowledge can often refocus our attention on taking care of our emotional well-being. No matter what we’re working through or looking to heal from, sometimes we might need a little help or motivation.
Emotional healing can be rest, it can be careful reflection. It can be self-care, confrontation, silence, therapy, exercise and many other things. It’s as individual as we are. There’s no right way to do it, no set timeframe, it’s not even linear. How we piece ourselves back together looks and feels different for everyone — but it is a quiet teacher that will show us all the way forward.
Depending on what's happening in our lives, it can sometimes be difficult to reflect on what we're working through and remind ourselves of how far it is we've actually come. We all need moments where we get to pause and celebrate what has gone well and consider any progress made, especially if we're in the middle of some kind of struggle.
Most of us understand that how we choose to talk to others, and the words we use toward/about someone is very important because they can impact what that person feels or how they see themselves. This is much the same when it comes to self-talk and how we choose to speak to ourselves and what we plant as a seed in our own inner thoughts.
