Acknowledge but don’t dwell.
I have a bad habit of shrugging stuff off my shoulder in the fear that I will dwell and break my heart over and over again. I choose to ignore it as much as I can that’s why in the end, I don’t learn anything from it. Usually, it gets forgotten until it creeps out from the back of my head again. That’s how it was and that’s how I always choose to do things.
Now, it’s different. I have learned to acknowledge the bad things, accept it as it is and try to move on from it no matter how hard it could be. It’s a little less hurtful to be honest.
So the next time you encounter something bad, a heart breaking experience or a tragic event, embrace it even if it hurts, acknowledge and accept it so that it will be easier to learn from it and move forward.
