In letting it go life poppy thoughts

Letting it Go

I have been going through a bit of a hard time with  some people recently and I am sure everyone has been through something similar at some point.  It is a horrible feeling, and can make simple things feel a lot harder.  I am not going to share the story here as it involves other people but I will share what I have learnt from the experience. Maybe it will help you if you are going through something similar.

The main thing I think that I learnt from this experience is that if you want something to change, you have to do something about it.  It may seem easier to sweep everything under the rug and pretend that nothing ever changed but this won't fix anything.  You need to stand up for yourself, and not let other people walk over you.

I have also learnt how to deal with stress and managing my anger (because a lot of this has made me really angry). I would have preferred not to go through this horrible experience at all, but to draw something good from it- it has taught me a few valuable skills;
-dealing with people I don't like
-ignoring things, rather than replying in anger
-and, most importantly, how to let something go and move on.
-and more, which you can read about in this post.

If you are going through something similar I would urge you to;
 -tell someone, like a parent or teacher. Not to make them fix it, but just to let them know what you are going through.
-try and be reasonable and calm. Don't reply when you are angry and always think before you say.
-not give the other person the power to hurt you (easier said than done), don't listen to what they might call you, and don't let them tell you that you did something you didn't do.

  1. Did you know that the part of the brain that "lights up with activity" during physical pain is the same part of the brain that lights up when facing social/friendship/belonging issues. It is a very old part of the brain, likely developed early in the human being brain development. It is thought to be an early warning system to help humans survive. It isn't something that can easily be controlled through conscious thought. Being tired, eating poorly, not exercising or being compromised by drugs or alcohol are all thought to worsen the control
