Unfortunately we will all experience some sort of negativity in our lives. Loss of a boyfriend; battling an illness; losing a parent; a loved one in jail—there are countless ways for our hearts to break. And yes, these heartbreaks do affect your life, but you have the power to control the effects of a negative situation.
No matter what the situation is that has happened in your life, you never want to give it the ability to control you. You have to take back the power so that you are able to live a healthy and happy life. Here’s how:
Go Through the Grief
There are a lot of people who opt not to go through a grieving period when something bad happens to them because they want to appear (to themselves and others) that they have the power to withstand the blows of life. And honestly, that does more harm than it does good.
Build a Strong Faith
One of the most beautiful things about faith is that it takes the power out of you and places it in an all-knowing entity. Therefore the focus is no longer on you and your situation. It’s on God. Faith in God gives you comfort and the peace you need to overcome any situation.
Set your mind to the person you want to be. Be determined to not be defined by a situation that has happened to you. This determination will propel your life forward, and over any obstacle or situation that has negatively effected your life.
