How you can show yourself love even when dealing with the aftermath of a storm…
Kat’s Empowerment Tips: Finding Your Way Home Again
After some time; days, weeks, months, however long it takes you getting through the storm, you will finally see something better. Maybe the storm is lessening, maybe the clouds are parting or maybe it’s a beautiful sunny day.
Then it’s time to catch your breath, regroup, do an inventory to see where the damage is as well as the good things still enduring despite the storm.
You start picking things up and putting them away after the storm in that boring, annoying, step up step by step process. It doesn’t happen all at once; it can take minutes, days, weeks, years and that’s okay. The angels say it takes as long as it takes. Try to avoid beating yourself up because that will just make it take longer.
The Angels are there, just waiting for you to ask for help. In the meantime, they’re looking out for you.
So you start putting things away and you may feel sadness, grief; there may be some losses, things broken, perhaps irreparably changed, perhaps not.
Also, this is the time that counter-intuitively, you may guilt trip yourself because of an unexpected moment of joy, something may make you smile out of the blue before reality crashes down. You may struggle with conflicting thoughts of”this bad thing happened, so how can I smile about anything ever again?”
It’s good to go ahead and smile if you can smile, laugh if you can laugh, without any pressure to smile or laugh if you are not feeling that.
You’ll still go back and forth, but try to embrace those moments of clarity and clearness where the pain’s receding. The damage is starting to heal; you can feel moments of happy and joy again.
Embrace those moments and know that they’ll come and go, but they’ll come coming around again. You will find your equilibrium again; I promise you will.
In these moments, I tell myself “just keep swimming, just keep swimming.” Corny, I know, but it helps.
In the meantime, please be kind to yourself and others. If you have a bad moment and lash out at someone out of anger, pain or grief, stop, acknowledge you did that without judging yourself. Take a deep breath, apologize, clean this up and forgive yourself.
Whatever happens, however you react, you are still loved.
