It’s Ok to Breakdown

Part of what I think makes our relationship (here on the blog) special, is that I can be honest and personal with you. This week’s blog is a perfect example of that. I know that I give tips and advice on how to live your best life week in and week out, but even with all of that, I am not perfect. Sometimes you can be doing everything “right” and still breakdown. I recently experienced a situation that placed me in major meltdown mode and taught me so much, which I am now sharing with you!

We are never finished learning and growing; there is always work to be done, and so, breaking down isn’t a bad thing. Sure it’s not pleasant, and it’s not always graceful, but there’s beauty in breakdowns as well. If we didn’t have the ugly and unpleasant moments, we wouldn’t have the comparison for the really high, happy moments. The breakdowns give us contrast and show us where our work still lies and where we have room to grow.

Breakdowns teach us valuable lessons, remind us that we don’t have to be perfect, and are a valid part of the journey in this life. If you’re feeling beaten down by a certain situation in your life, here are some helpful reminders that can help you persevere, overcome, and stay sane during the turbulent times!

* Don’t judge yourself; every situation we are given in life is brought for us to learn.

* Notice what the situation brings up for you.

* Allow yourself to feel the feelings; don’t try to rush through it.

* Be open to the lessons that are trying to make their way in.

* Don’t stay stuck in the negative; move forward into the positive.

* Remember to be gentle with yourself you’re doing the best you can.

I hope these are helpful for you! I’d love to hear how you deal with difficult moments in your life! Let me know in the comments below!

xoxo, Michelle
