Out of sight, out of mind
Over the past few months before leaving the UK I felt like I was in tunnel of nightmares that were never ending. I was feeling as though my life was just wasting away each day trying to handle something I never dreamed of happening to me, was not only heartbreaking but life changing at the same time. The grievance and anger one can experience is tough stuff to deal with, sometimes it’s the only way to cope and it can be such a shock to the system. In the end I just wanted to get away as I knew this wasn’t me and wasn’t the person I wanted to be.
In my gut I knew that when I left this endless nightmare of a tunnel to surround myself with my amazing friends and family, the entire trauma would be over or at least it would be easier to deal with. And I was right….out of sight, out of mind.
Trying to put your focus not on the pain that you have just experienced, but the incredible moments of the past you shared together and had is a must. Although this does bring up emotions, but its easier dealing with these emotions than what you’ve just gone through. Believing you’re in the right place, right now and knowing this was all meant to happen for a reason is an affirmation you need to tell yourself daily.
Having friends and family close will not only support you but give you the mindset to change such circumstances, they are the ones who know how strong you can be, can relate with their past experiences and give you the courage to get past it all.
The future is abundant if you decide it to be and it’s the choices we make on a daily basis that creates this from here on in.
As much as my road ahead seems scary, what I have is my daughter and a life I know I can make loving, prosperous, exciting, positive, stress free, optimistic and a happy place to be for the rest of my life.
