Happiness will come to you when you let go of the hurt that is holding you back.

Letting go of someone who’s not good for you

1. Write down all the reasons why you think it’s bad for you to keep on being a part of this love relationship.

2. Try to call to mind the pain and hurtful memories, and all the times you’ve wished that your heart was free again.

3. Identify and list all the different ways you’ve changed, and become less of your self with this person’s in your life.

4. Remind yourself of how you’ve tried to try to keep the love alive – and how it hasn’t worked, or left you feeling satisfied.

5. Think about and celebrate the ways you think you’ll change if you can end things now, and can love somebody else.

6. Image being strong enough to make a lasting break, and doing what is best for the “you” you want to be.

7. Think of things you’ll do to fill the void it leaves behind – so you are not pulled back when you’re hit with loneliness.

8. Remember what was good – for not everything was bad. Be thankful for the lessons, and the memories you have.

Tips for Surviving Tough Times

1. Remind yourself that you still have options (even if they aren’t all that appealing at the moment).

2. Focus on those few things that are going well (even if you have to scratch your head and really, really think!)

3. Decide what you can do … and then just take the next small step. And then, when you’ve done that, take another tiny step.

4. Admit how you are feelings; admit your greatest fears o fight, and persevere.

5. Let go of all the oughts, and the musts and the shoulds. Demands and expectations will only wear you down.

6. Ensure your life is balanced – and make sure you make the time to relax, have some fun, to chill out, and have a laugh.

When you do something noble and beautiful and nobody noticed, do not be sad. For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps.

How to Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

1. Don’t listen to the voice inside your head that tells you that you are inadequate.

2. Don’t hang out with people who look for the flaws and can’t see the best in the people in their lives.

3. Recognise that each person is different and unique. There is no-one like you – and you have great attributes.

4. Take note of your efforts, and the progress you have made. You’ve already come far. You should celebrate that!

5. Appreciate others, and what you gain from them. Don’t see them as people who undermine you.

6. Remember that NO-ONE is perfect at all – and that other people struggle with the same stuff as well.

7. Go after what matters the most in this life: being loyal, and thoughtful, and caring, and kind.
