5 Things To Remember When Your Life Seems To Be Falling Apart

Life is a long journey, loaded with ecstatic happiness as well as painful moments.

At one phase, you find your life to be falling apart and you realize that there’s nothing left to hold onto.

But wait, this is not the end. Not yet. You have to get up and put those pieces back in place.

Yes, it’s possible!

All it requires is that you remember the five things that will help you bounce back.

 

1. Cry Your Heart Out – Release Your Emotions

Some people choose to put on a brave face and decide to face the storms in life without a tear, while others may resort to shedding tears to relieve the pain within.

Being strong is an admirable trait.

Sometimes, it becomes essential to cry your heart out to give freedom to the bottled up emotions and to release the negativity from your thoughts.

Contrary to popular belief, crying is not a sign of weakness, instead it is a mark of staying strong for too long.

Even though we have come a long way as a society, men are compelled to abide by the social construct of staying strong during troubled times – the off beam stereotype being that crying is a sign of femininity.

Society at large needs to understand that it’s absolutely okay to cry, no matter what gender you belong to, as crying will help to heal your wounds and dull your pain.

Ultimately it will give you the power to attain closure, get over your grief faster, and move forward.

So don’t suppress your feelings.

Remember to cry your heart out when life seems to be falling apart.

2. All Experiences Are Part Of Your Journey

Life is a journey of ups and downs. It never stays the same.

It doesn’t matter if we accept or reject the changes taking place, as it won’t stop at any cost.

The series of experiences that make up the journey called life are a part of who we really are.

They make us and break us, and we have to live with them. If we look at life from a broader perspective, we will understand that our experiences nurture our soul and slowly transform us into who we are today.

Embracing your experiences as a part of your journey will help you gain insight by looking at life in a different light.

Every experience is valuable and helps you grow in life’s various spheres.

Moments of sorrow, stress, failure, and apprehension may make you believe that your life is falling apart, but you are the one who will ultimately have to hold all the pieces of life together.

Learn from your experiences, and develop a new self-identity to reconcile yourself with the realities of life.

 

3. Look For The Silver Linings

Sometimes, realities that may appear harsh to us carry sweeter endings with them.

You may remember the saying ‘every cloud has a silver lining’.

Similarly, your life experiences also have a silver lining. You might never know, they may have a diamond lining as well.

You just need to pause, step back, take a deep breath, look at the bigger picture, and be patient.

Life never stays the same. After every sunset, there’s a sunrise.

You just have to be awake to witness the glory that the sunrise brings with it. Don’t fret over the mishaps in your life; just wait for things to get better.

It may seem that your life is falling apart and you may feel helpless, but the sour turn of events may be heralding a better life and leading you towards your dreams.

Life is difficult for all of us at different points in time.

The difference is how we deal with it.

You must give up the victim mentality and realize that so many good things happened to you too in the past, and more will make their way towards you in the future.

“Never be afraid to fall apart because it is an opportunity to rebuild yourself the way you wish you had been all along.” – Rae Smith 

4. Keep Moving

Low tides come in our lives and leave us stunned, broken, and hopeless. But that doesn’t mean that we must stop living our life and become inert.

Even if you stop, life won’t stop for you, it will go on.

You must remember that after every low tide, there’s a high tide as well, you just have to keep moving.

Take one step at a time, follow your routine, set goals for yourself, and steer clear from negativity.

Go out and have some fun, take a break, go for a vacation, and just do something exciting.

Read inspirational articles, spend time with your family, indulge in activities that make you feel happy, just remember to keep moving.

Don’t wrap yourself in your sorrows or you will drown in them. Keep moving with the tide.

Bear in mind, if you keep moving, this phase will pass away, and one day you will realize your life is not falling apart anymore.

Instead, everything that happened, happened for a reason.

 

5. Be Grateful

While things may look bleak right now, not everything might be going wrong.

There will be things that are going right.

When life takes a turn for the worse, we become negative about everything and end up forgetting what we have been blessed with.

This ungratefulness will not take you anywhere. You have to take charge of your life and learn to show gratitude.

Think about it, you’ve been blessed with so much in life. Be grateful for what you have been blessed with, and don’t take those blessings lightly.

Recollect memories of all the happy and blessed moments in your life. Write them down in your diary and feel the joy that those blessings brought you in your life, when you first got them.

This approach will help you focus on the brighter ends in life and give a boost to your self-confidence.

Your blessings will give you the power that is hidden within you, to deal with the hassles in your life.

Gratitude will heal your soul and relieve the pain of life’s wounds.

“Choosing to be positive and having a grateful attitude is going to determine how you’re going to live your life.” – Joel Osteen

If you are in pain, if your dreams have been shattered and your heart has been broken, try these five things and observe the change that they will bring in your life. With the help of these tips, the first thing that will change is your outlook on life, and with that, your whole life will take a turn for the better.

Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to be a writer. But my quintessential Indian father thought that was a terrible idea, and well, so did everybody else I knew. Eventually, thanks to nasty teachers and being in the wrong stream (IT engineering), I resigned myself to having a purposeless existence. But after graduation, I could not bring myself to conform any longer. So I dove into the world of writing. (more…)

Given the stress and challenges of this past year, your inner critic may be at a dull roar by now.
