Becoming emotionally strong is hard but achievable. Have you heard of the famous saying?
Nothing can dull your light when you shine from within.
There are all sorts of days. Sometimes life seems so insolent and then there are days when it seems one of the best things that could have ever happened to you.
You cannot help yourself when you feel broken and you don’t find yourself in the right position.
Some things break you and you do feel stranded.
Then there are days when you look up at the sky, see the stars shining and motivation swipes up and down within you. Does it vary from situation to situation?
Yes, it does, but at the end, motivation is what we all need to become an emotionally strong person.
Being an emotionally strong person does not mean to not weep, not love or not care about anything in this world. It is all about having a balance amongst all the emotions and do face all the phases with strength.
So how can you become emotionally strong?
Well, there isn’t any secret recipe to it but I can certainly try to help you along with all that I know through my life experience and research.
1. Motivation is the Fuel:
If you are trying to start the car, it needs to have enough fuel so that you can drag it till the pump and get it filled till the top, right? Just like that, if you have to become emotionally strong, you need motivation.
Helpless people are the hardest to deal with and they find dealing with their own personal life’s equally hard.
They might have an issue but they usually aren’t willing to find a solution for it.
Therefore, if you want to be strong, emotionally; then you need to be motivated because this will take a lot of your mind, heart, and soul!
2. Meditation makes one emotionally strong:
Meditation is really essential. You need to sit back every day for at least 20 minutes and peek within yourself. This helps you look into your own weaknesses and strengths. Forget about all the social media platforms you could utilize in that half hour break. Instead, think of how you can avail those 20 minutes to become stronger.
Mediation has various ways;
• You can write a journal about whatever you are thinking. This is will aid you in setting the wrongs right as you will have it all jotted down somewhere.
• If you are a yoga lover; nothing beats that, does it?
• You can walk swiftly; don’t go for lazy walking as it increases your thighs and you wouldn’t want that!
• Or you can just sit outside and focus on your breathing; it helps a lot.
3. Learning to embrace loneliness:
I get it; till we are in high school, we are usually indulged in our friends and nothing beats our ultimate squad goals or that one best friend who girls usually term as “bae”. But once you are out of all such: false fantasies”; real life hits you.
Know that people will ditch you and they will lie to you and at the end, you will helplessly and hopelessly walk back home. Be sure that you know how to love being alone and enjoy your own company. Be positive and radiate from within you! Don’t let anyone dull your spark. Shine on your own, for your own!
4. Talk to yourself:
People who talk to themselves are usually termed “mad” and I am proudly one of the maddest people I know. Well, there is nothing better than self-therapy and it brings mental strength to you. Talk your issues out with yourself, rather than talking them out with anyone. Don’t trust people with your problems; the best solution will come from within you and your mind because you know how to handle yourself in the best way possible.
Comfort your own self because trust me; no one will do it without any personal reasons! If you have a moment where you need reassurance, be there to reassure yourself; don’t really on anyone and that makes you headstrong and emotionally robust as well.
Being emotionally strong can be hard. It seems that life is hitting you back with situations you can’t handle and you wish you could block all your emotions in a box and let them go away. But you need to face them.
Trust no one with your problems and be your own hero. Take your own responsibility because you are your own concern.
Be grateful for your life and be happy with whatever you have.
Stop complaining and whining about things that don’t matter as much as you think they do!
All of these small baby steps will lead you to become a strong person inside out.
