When a needle pricks you, only you feel the pain. Others can only sympathize with you. When you bruise yourself in the process of your day to day work, only you can feel the pain. Others can only comfort you. When you feel hurt, something pricks you deep within the heart. This pain deep within, is solely yours. Nobody can help you in carrying that load of pain.
When something deeply hurts you, you feel very small, insignificant and worthless. Everything around you starts to feel hollow and worthless. People, relationships, feelings, emotions, values everything goes for a toss. In this whole process, the pain is only and only caused to you. It is you, who has allowed the other person to empty out his/her garbage onto you-Sometimes, you don’t have a choice, especially, if it’s your boss at the other end. You have been the recipient of the flurry of harsh words meted out at you or you are feeling the pain of a loved one not inquiring about you, or your teacher rebuking you. You are feeling awful about this. I’m sure, most of us have been here, gone through this at some point in life.
Sometimes, such things happen, and you do feel the pain and burden deep within. You cannot control the words and action of another person who has treated you thus, but you and only you can control the way you want to feel about and after this experience and here, you have a choice..
The only way to heal the scar on your heart or overcome this, is to let go. By letting go here, I mean, let go off that frustration, that pain, that anger, that the particular interaction has caused within you. You can let go by following what you love to do. Follow your passion/hobby. You can write, sing, draw, shout your lungs out, box a pillow, write about your feelings on a piece of paper and shred it into pieces. Choose, what feels good for you, but have it flushed out of your system. Unburden and clean your heart. After all, it’s the most important organ you have. Send out love to your heart. If you keep dumping load on it, it’s bound to fail, and you cannot afford that, for you are important and you are worth it !!
