When bad things happen to us or loved ones it can be very hard to deal with and make sense of. In these times of trouble we might want to run to the dark places in our mind and heart and shut the good things out in our life. Momentarily, this might make us feel better, we can get brief comfort from feeling as if the world isn’t such a good place.
However, to begin to heal from negative experiences we must continue to stay in the light. Continue to be positive and always, always look for the good around you. They can be simple things like sunshine or a smile. Find those good things and hold onto them. They are your anchor to moving past the negative into the positive. Don’t be afraid to try to find and look for happiness and positivity.
We grow stronger not by staying in the negative, but by having courage to look for and hold on to the positive.
