Quote: “If you feel like you’re losing everything, remember that trees lose their leaves every year and they still stand tall and wait for better days to come.”
I believe that everything happens for a reason. Do you?
You’re probably thinking “am I feeling miserable for a particular reason”?
Never be afraid to collapse because it is in fact an opportunity to change. It’s an opportunity to rebuild and to redefine yourself.
Situations change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you can appreciate them when they’re right. And sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. Sometimes when things are falling apart, they may actually be falling into place. In the same way, maybe you’re breaking into pieces, so a better you can fall into place.
And now you’re probably thinking “I don’t feel like I’m falling into place right now.”
Life has many ways of testing your will and even more ways to teach you how to grow. Either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once. When nothing happens, that’s when you start to question where you are, who you’re with and where you’re going. You feel like nothing is happening for you.
On the flip side, when it all happens at once, you feel overwhelmed. You feel like it’s getting colder and so does your heart. You feel like it’s getting so much darker and so are your thoughts. The leaves are starting to fall, and so are you. Now, you feel like you’re falling apart, and you can almost feel every piece of you hitting the ground and it’s killing you.
You’re thinking “I’m tired and I just want a day where it doesn’t feel like I’m losing my grip.”
I know that it hurts to fall into something different. And you don’t want to feel this way at all. You don’t want to participate, because it hurts. But that’s the key. You have to be involved to evolve.
You evolve when you involve yourself. That peace you’re looking for lies within yourself. Within your pieces that are now falling down.
You now have the chance to pick up the pieces and rearrange them.
How to move beyond the feeling of falling apart
Only after a disaster can we be resurrected. It’s only after you’ve practically lost everything, or feel like you’ve lost everything, that you become free to do anything. Nothing is static, everything is evolving. In the same way trees lose their leaves every year, everything is always in motion.
Everything is falling apart, including you. And everything is falling together perfectly, you included.
Even though it looks bad when you look at it with your current eyes, trust the process of the change you are now experiencing. It’s a wave of change and a wave of new growth. A new season. You may still be feeling like you’re completely broken, but remember that you’ve been here before, on a different scale, at different place and at a different time. Ride the wave. Again. Consciously this time.
Things are always in transition, including you. But, you just have to realise that this right here, isn’t the end. And you have two choices: to evolve or repeat the pain.
My advice to you is this:
Take your time to think about the old you, the feelings you associate with that person and also take time to mourn the old you. Mourn the things and places you no longer need. Eliminate what doesn’t help you to evolve. Gather the rest of you, the best of you, and with a smile, walk away towards a new you.
Picture yourself doing that mentally. Because, you are changing, you’re growing. You just have to choose to look at it that way.
