Sometimes you start to feel like EVERY day is a bad day. You’re long past “stressed” and on your way to burnout. You are 100% emotionally exhausted. What now?
5 messages every emotionally exhausted woman needs to hear…
Here are 5 simple messages to read and gently take in, like the dry, soft ground takes in a summer rain.
1. Everything you need to heal is within you.
There isn’t a drug or magic wand or “weird tip” that will fix all this. Everything you need to heal your emotional exhaustion is already within you.
It’s like an upside-down jar filled with liquid peace; you just have to figure out how to gently unscrew the lid and let that soothing, healing balm spread over your soul.
2. Let go.
It’s time to say no, drop the ball, withdraw from some — or maybe a lot — of the responsibilities you’ve taken on. Yes, some things will go undone. Some things will break. But the important things will come back together eventually.
Letting go is the only way you can free some space to allow healing to take place.
So let go.
3. Grieve your losses.
When you are emotionally exhausted, you can’t go into your healing thinking that you can keep everything the same, because you can’t. Some things need to end in order for you to heal.
And in many cases, that means things will be left undone. Things will stop happening. Some things will fall apart. This needs to happen.
It’s perfectly okay to feel sad about all the things that are going haywire, being lost, drifting away, or being left undone.
Later, after you’ve healed, you can begin to celebrate that it isn’t YOU who is irreparably broken.
But for now, be sad if you need to.
4. Ask for help.
When you constantly deny that you’re emotionally exhausted, you start to suffer emotionally. The truth is, you aren’t superwoman. And you weren’t meant to be.
You are one (beautiful) human woman, and you deserve support, encouragement, and loving assistance in the great journey of life.
Who can you call on for help? The sooner you ask, the sooner your healing will arrive.
5. Be patient.
Sometimes it takes TIME for your deepest emotional and spiritual needs to be met. Our culture tends to teach us that everything should be instant.
There’s a fast track to emotional exhaustion, but the path to emotional healing is slow and beautiful. It’s zen and starlight and the sound of waterfalls, and the feeling of being hugged by someone who loves you without reserve.
It takes time, but it’s well worth the slow, loving recovery.
Please don’t put off caring for yourself…
You need to create clear healing space in your life and heart.
The constant clatter and demands in your head can keep you from getting still, finding your center, and recovering the woman you are and were meant to be.
A gentle support system is as close as your mp3 player. It doesn’t cost anything, and if you’ve never considered hypnosis, I think you’ll find that it’s definitely worth trying.
Don’t put off caring for yourself.
Settle your heart, relax in a comfortable spot, and prepare yourself for healing and renewal…
