This post is about all the shit life throws at you and coming out stronger than before… This one is more of a venting session. For that, I apologize.
People will try to break you any way they know how. They will take everything you have to give and destroy it, leaving you lost and empty. These people don’t deserve your greatness. You deserve happiness. I know sometimes it feels like your whole world is falling apart but it isn’t. It’s okay to be angry. It’s okay to hurt and feel broken. Just know, you aren’t broken. You are better than that!!!!
The key to surviving these people is to come out stronger than you were. Better than you were. Channel that pain, that anger into something healthy.
I have recently found out that the man I fell for wasn’t the man I thought he was. I’m not here to bash him- no one deserves that. But what was done cut to my very core. I have never felt so many different emotions in such a short period of time before. But today, I was sick of it. I was sick of feeling down and angry and devastated. So, I hit the bag. I put my gloves on, walked outside and with a little help of Eminem blaring through my headphones, I hit that punching bag. I cried, I rapped, I punched and with each tear that fell and each knuckle that got torn, I felt the weight fall off. I felt my freedom coming back.
Some people use medicine. Some turn to alcohol. Some turn to others. But, for me, there is nothing like the feeling of my fists hitting that heavy bag. It’s therapy. It’s real. There’s a peacefulness I find in that bag. A sense of freedom. Nothing else matters when I’m there. It’s like setting fire to yesterday.
Take that hurt that you have and convert it to gasoline- set your past on fire. Let it all go. Focus on today, and building yourself to become better, stronger than you were. Forgive. Forgive it all, for yourself. You deserve happiness and you should strive to get it.
Don’t let anyone take that away from you. Pain is beautiful. It means you’re alive, which means you will survive. Feed from it. Find the light…
I’m back. 🙂
