You’re sitting in a chair relaxing on your front porch watching the sunset when suddenly a feeling of sadness arises. It causes you to feel guilty, useless, and empty. Why are you so sad when you are looking at something so beautiful? The answer? Your mind. Memories.
Why are thoughts so powerful? They can make us laugh, make us cry, and put us in the most positive mental space or negative mental space we’ve ever been in.
There sadly isn’t an easy answer.
Numerous studies are done on human psychology all over the world, and we aren’t even halfway to learning about the human brain. There is so much information we have yet to find.
My point is, the past can be difficult sometimes. Traumatic events re-wire your brain in a way it wasn’t wired before.
A lot of damage is done after so many events which can make it difficult to recover after a mental breakdown.
Letting go is hard. So is forgiving.
For you I have five words: One day at a time.
