Why do we sabotage our happiness?
After suffering a painful loss, we feel guilty when we start to let a little bit of happiness touch our hearts again.
It’s a guilt feeling as if we were meant to be sad for the rest of our lives, not because of what other people might say, but because we fell like we are betraying the person we lost.
If you are going through that experience at this moment, please, fight against it.
“Deep grief sometimes is almost like a specific location, a coordinate on a map of time. When you are standing in that forest of sorrow, you cannot imagine that you could ever find your way to a better place.
But if someone can assure you that they themselves have stood in that same place, and now have moved on, sometimes this will bring hope.” – Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love
You will move on, and it’s okay!
The ones you lost, the ones you love, will always be with you. The energy of their love will combine with yours, making the perfect love symbiosis.
Make sure to honor their lives through your happiness, they will be so proud of you!
You deserve to be happy!
Thank you for meeting me halfway.
