The road to healing is a personal one. My road may look completely different than yours. You may have to try a few things before you find the right tools for your journey.
The things listed on these pages are the path that God led me down. They are the things I needed to do in order to heal and be set up to continue down the road He has set before me. Some of them may work for you, or none of them. I have found that the key to aiding in your own healing is in keeping busy and eliminating the things from your daily world that pull you back into the pain. Talking always helped me. If you feel like you don’t have anyone in your life that you feel comfortable talking to about your broken heart I encourage you to check out my resources page. I personally recommend all of the resources on that page.
There are so many things that might help you on this journey to healing. You don’t have to follow my road. Feel free to use the ones you like and ignore the others. Find what works for you.
Here are just a few more suggestions:
- Do something you have always wanted to do.
- Start a project. (Anyone want to come train my puppy? He likes to jump.)
- Learn something new. (I have always wanted to learn sign language.)
- Take a trip. (I dream of visiting Scotland and Ireland, and the sunflower fields of Italy.)
- If all else fails get lost in your favorite music, movies and books.
The possibilities are endless. Go ahead and leave any suggestions you have thought of in the comments below. Maybe your suggestions will be of help to someone else who is on the same journey.
Only God can heal a broken heart, but there are things we can do to help foster self healing. This post is part of my series 31 Days of Self Healing. You can find the rest of the posts for this series here.
