If you have let down badly by someone in your recent past, and you find that you are not able to move on, or recover from that emotional attachment, then you need to know that you are not alone: there are others like you, who are suffering from the same problem of not being able to overcome their emotional attachment in order to move on.
How is it possible to change, you may think at this point. It is not something that can be helped; it happened, and here I am, heartbroken and full of grief.
The thing is, it is all actually in your hands. If you want to help yourself, then you definitely can.
Here are some helpful tips for you to start overcoming your emotional attachments:
- Smile! Were you aware that each and every time you smile, your body releases those â€˜feel happyâ€™ hormones, endorphins? Whenever you smile, you automatically start to feel happy, and if you make it a point to smile, even if it is at yourself in the mirror, you have already taken the first step towards overcoming and getting past your emotional attachments successfully.
- Think of your emotional attachment as a blast of air that you blow into a balloon, a balloon that you will release into the sky when it is filled. Symbolically, think of taking up a balloon, blowing your depression and trauma caused by the emotional attachment into it, and feeling that a weight has been lifted from your body, when you release this weight into the air, you will feel free and light! Try it, it works!
- Have you ever tried meditation? Meditation will help you step aside from the normal workings of your mind, and move onto a new perspective, from which things may look completely different to you.
- Keep yourself busy through the day, with work, or meeting friends, or whatever you like doing. Do not give yourself time to sit and brood about what has happened. If possible, enroll yourself in a completely new activity, in something that you have wanted to do for a long time now, but havenâ€™t found the time or the patience to try it out. A new activity will keep you engaged so thoroughly that you will automatically start to forget what happened in your life to hurt you so badly.
Remember, it is up to you. You take things into your own hands, and go ahead and make positive changes in your life.
