This is a REPOST - not my words. But WOW, they are powerful and really very helpful to me, someone who has to occasionally mend that tattered thread I hang on by...
Are You Hanging by a Thread?
What you're going through is difficult, but it's going to be okay.
BY: By Danielle LaPorte
Itís hard, itís wrenching. Itís incredibly painful and itís difficult to feel lightness. Or to see clearly. Hanging by a thread can be really disorienting. What youíre going through undeniably sucks.
Listen to me: Itís going to be okay. Youíre going to get through this. You can do it. Baby, you ARE doing it. Youíre getting through this. Right now your cells are plumping up and your heart is beating and you have your breath. In breath. Out breath. Itís really okay if you have to get that basic about getting through it. In breath, out breath.
Sunís gonna rise. Itís going to be okay. Take encouragement from strangers. Like me. Go ahead. Take it. Itís free and I donít feel karmically entangled. So listen to me: Itís going to be okay.
This will not kill you.
Do you believe in angels? If you donít just believe in them for the next twenty fours. There are a hundred thousand angels by your side.
Youíre probably feeling devastatingly alone, like an iceberg drifting. No one can hear you cracking. Itís cold. But, just like an iceberg, you have so much beneath the surface. Years of layers and lifetimes of experience and strengths to call on ó skills of expanding consciousness that you didnít even know you had. You will not sink.
People have been through what youíre going through right now. Thousands of them. Really and truly. Your picture of heartbreak, your strain of pain is part of the human fabric, and that tapestry is holding you like an Eskimo blanket. Other people have survived this and when they got out of the hole, they left a morphogenic popcorn trail out of the pain. You can trace their steps.
It may be hard to believe right now, but not only will it be okay, not only will you get through and over this, you will thrive again. You will be clear and vibrant and INCREDIBLE. You will not only have more character to pull out at parties and wisdom to offer the world, but you will feel more joy than you think is possible right now. You will.
You may walk with a limp. You may wince when you look back (understandable,) you may cry unexpectedly in the book store, but youíll be more alive, and more You. You will be strong. And you will feel a curious sensation of being more useful. And it will feel really, really fantastic.
What youíre going through right now is so difficult.
And itís going to be okay.
More than okay.
