1. Acknowledge the pain you’re experiencing
Society will be uncomfortable with the pain you are feeling.
We want quick fixes, and feel much more comfortable being surrounded by happy people than those in pain.
However, don’t give into the pressure to pretend to be ok if you’re not. It’s essential to acknowledge the pain you’re feeling and work through it – there are no short cuts.
If you try to take any, your healing will only take much, much longer. Cry when you need to, acknowledge what you feel and don’t be ashamed.
