“When life knocks you down, try to land on your back. Because if you can look up, you can get up. Let your reasons get you back up.” Les Brown 

When you get hurt, when the pain is greater than you can handle, it knocks you down. You are asking yourself, “Am I ever get over it or will I suffer forever?” You doubt it because the pain you feel is quite intense.

I have seen myself and others around trying to handle it with the last breathe we got. And you know, time really does matter when things get rough. But I also know that nothing last forever, and as corny as it sounds, you’ll get passed it. The question is, “How long is it going to take?” Well, it all depends on you and how much you want it.

Here are 5 proven ways which will speed up your process and help you to let go of the pain.

1. Give yourself some time

The first thing you must do is to put out your feelings and let time does the work. Letting go definitely requires some time, and because you don’t want to stay there long, decide for a period you allow yourself to feel down and sad. It is necessary to set up a time frame since it isn’t beneficial to feel sorry for yourself.

Depending on the seriousness of the problem, you can decide for a day, a week or even a month. Giving yourself a deadline will prepare you to end this misery. You will psychologically ready to give up the sadness once the time is right because this is what you wanted.

2. Surround yourself with people who matters the most

What you need right now are the right people around you. No drama, no negativity, just peace and comfortable environment. However, you and I may agree that this should be your surroundings every day of your life.

Your best friends and closest family know you deeply and understand what helps you the best. Feeling true love will make your transition easier and faster. All you need right now are the right feelings that support you and people who love you and know how to deliver what you need .

3. Boost your mind with positivity

What keeps you going? What can totally inspire you and make you feel great? Find things from the past which worked and use them again. I would definitely recommend exercise and gratitude.

Feeling thankful in difficult moments is crucial for one reason. When you get hurt, you may blame the other person, you are angry or maybe you feel betrayed. Gratitude will help you to change your focus and see the positive things in your life. Maybe they are hard to see right now, but trust me, every day brings at least one thing you can feel grateful for.

4. Recap what you have learned

The benefit of any negative and hurtful situation you experience is the lesson you gain. You will always learn and grow more when you get knocked down than when you are happy and things go as planned. Don’t hate me but this is the fact.

After you have given yourself some time, surrounded yourself with tons of love and practiced gratitude, it is time to move on and deal with a real stuff. What this experience thought you? What have you learned and how it may benefit you for a lifetime? Once you get to this point, you are growing. Be fricking proud of yourself!

5. Let go and start over

It’s time to let go of pain and prepare yourself for the positive future. Remember one thing, until you let go of what is hurting you, you can’t make a healthy move towards happiness. You already got yourself some time and hang out with the right people, you found the positive so now it’s time to break in. It’s time to kick-start new beginning and get back on your feet for 100%.

Getting knock down in life is its part. It never comes to destroy you, it always appears when you need to learn something and grow. So get up and go for your happiness with courage. Commit yourself that you are going to build a life that truly counts.

  1. I've been married for 20 years, just got divorced this past January. What kind of time should I give myself? It's been 6months, and I'm still having a hard time letting go. Any advice would be appreciated.

    • Hello Shy girl. I think that for marriage this long, 6 months is not such a long time. You have a history with that person and it is understandable that it takes longer for you to let go what has been part of your life for 20 years. Most important thing here is to change your focus. If you aren't with this person, there is a reason for it. I know it sounds like a cliche, but it's true. You need to focus on things you have learned along the way and also what else you can do for the future. My mum was trying to recover from a divorce for years. It takes so long for her because her mindset wasn't right. Instead of seeing new opportunities, she was regretting all that has happened and she was asking herself very disempowering questions like "Why this has to happen to me?" With wrong questions, you get the wrong answer. Don't beat yourself down because it took you 6 months and you are still not over it. Ask yourself what can you do to improve your life as it is right now? What options you have? Where can you expand as a person? What is in your life right now you can be grateful for? Asking yourself right questions will help you to let go of your hurt after divorce.

    • One more thing, if you feel that you have tried anything and everything and don't see yourself moving forward, try visit a specialist who can help you and guide you throughout the process. I believe that at some point, we need to realize that maybe psychologist is a good way to go and not try to handle it on our own.
