Things to do to heal yourself:
Take one day at a time. You don’t have to know what you’re doing the next day or even the next hour. I’ve learned that the more you think in the future, the shorter the day seems and the months fly past you, and you are left feeling ungratified and unsatisfied. It’s almost like everything has been a blur, and you find yourself saying, “the time went by so fast,” even though you haven’t accomplished much. So do everything in the moment of ‘now’, and cherish each minute like it’s the last minute you have.
Smile, because you are alive. You have another day in this beautiful world and thank god for what you have. Meditate for 15 minutes a day for happy and peaceful life.
Let it go. You know nothing is going to change; you can’t change people, unless they truly want to, and you can’t change the past either, and you don't know what the future holds and the sooner you realize this; you will spend more time being happy than in a constant battle with your mind and your heart. They need to rest too.
Take risks. If you never take any, the moment that turned out for the worst could have turned out for the best. This works vice-versa as well, but either way; you will learn from these experiences. You won’t forget how rapidly your heart was beating in these moments and how electric you felt. It will be worth it in the end, trust me.
Call up the person that you didn’t spend enough time getting to know, simply because you were too distracted with somebody else or just didn’t feel like you’d become something more than acquaintances. Greet strangers and embrace the idea of diversity. Ask questions about different cultures, morals, ideas, beliefs; educate yourself.
Go ahead and wear that outfit you keep telling yourself that it doesn’t look good on you. You bought it because you liked it, yes? So, show it to the whole damn world with a smile and confidently squared shoulders—even better. You are beautiful.
Instead of procrastinating and wallowing in self-pity, get up and do something. Sitting around is not going to do much but make you feel horrible, and you will create scenarios that may not even exist or be as big as it occurs in your head, that will cause the situation to become worse. You want this to be your time of explosive progress? Set goals and strive to achieve them. You want to look back at the time and say, “I did well."
Spend more time with your family or friends. Build a support system so strong, that you will never feel lonely. In fact, this support system will lead you to feeling content even when you are alone, because you won’t feel the constant need to either be with someone or have somebody who loves you, because you know you’ll have people who love you and the more love you surround yourself with, the easier it becomes to love yourself too.
Be kind always and be angry when you need to be. Stand up for the ideas that you believe in and don’t back down from them just because you have a different opinion. Learn to love the sound of your voice when it bounces off the walls of a room full of people as your voice has the power to change a million minds. Remember, you are allowed to feel whatever it is you feel.
Go on more road trips or just take a few minutes to be outside by yourself. Inhale and exhale the air around you. Watch the stars, the sunset, the sunrise, the birds flying in the sky, the cars passing by. Walk in the rain sometimes without an umbrella, instead of running away from it. Let your skin soak the sunshine more often. God, isn’t the world itself beautiful?
Be faithful. This is the time you hoped to be better. Don’t let anything or anyone stop you from achieving that because you are limitless as long as you believe yourself to be.
