Although it is normal to be a bit shaky on your feet after a drastic change in life, I quickly realized that I was not doing enough to make sure I was healing properly. I was more mopey than I should have let myself be, I lacked motivation, and I definitely was not eating properly, so that had to change.
With time, I was able to find healthy ways to heal. Obviously, these methods have not completely alleviated the pain I've been feeling or negated what I have been through, but they have helped me get back in touch with myself and have made this whole healing process a bit easier:
- Find a mantra that speaks to you (Mine is "excelsior")
- Start a gratitude journal
