Your Pain Should Not Become Your Prison

I know that life can be difficult sometimes, there are so many challenges along the way which can make us overlook how much progress we are making and we can often get lost in the prison of our thoughts, thoughts that keep us stuck in the past.  I have written this piece to empower whoever is in need of comfort. I hope that whoever reads this finds some kind of peace, learns something from it and is able to break free from whatever challenges are holding them back.

Why Your Pain Should Not Become Your Prison

This is for anyone who is struggling with the challenges of their past:

You need to find it within yourself to be stronger than your challenges, tougher than your battles.

Don’t let your challenges become who you are. 
It may not be easy but it’s necessary in order for you to truly live.
If your pain defines you then you become that pain.

I have seen beautiful people in my life become the pain that they despise. 
The negativity eats away at their beauty and life becomes rage. A cycle of constant rage which is allowed to manifest whenever there are situations that remind them of that pain.

Once that negativity consumes a person it can become their prison, I’ve seen it happen, in fact I see it happening everyday.

Don’t let the pain become your prison.

Find a way to channel that pain into something amazing.
Use that energy to give you courage.

Free yourself from your pain, find a way, seek help, get rest, do whatever it takes but be free.

    I needed this… it's much easier said thsn done. You know when you think you've moved on only for the most random thing to take you back there… a battle I'm willing to overcome though.
    Thanks Ronke ♡
