You may be one of the most gifted, influential persons in the world and still be the most insecure, unfulfilled and empty person you know. Hurt people may hurt people, but hurt people often hurt themselves. In this age of the “social media fame” and “overnight successes”, so many get caught up in portraying the picture of success which requires an unrealistic, fast process. This quest only leads to exhaustion, burnout and depleted resources, which push you further away from your mission.
I see it all the time. Whether working with the business elite, future authors, speakers or everyday people, I find one common fact among them all:
Everyone has a story to tell and, for most, it’s the story you’re not telling that’s ruining your life.
Ever notice how many trauma survivors assume positions as helpers? It’s admirable to want to save the world and make it a better place, helping others avoid the pain you survived. However, the story you’re not telling, the secrets buried deep within, can spread through every area of your life like a cancer and destroy every good thing.
Here are 5 tips to help you break the chain of hidden pain and secrets:
Many are unknowingly living under the shame, scars and effects of undesirable events and occurrences of the past. You can use concealer all you want, but what lies underneath is still there and soon multiples.
Be mindful of playing the blame game, especially when the finger points at you. Taking personal responsibility for your actions and making the appropriate changes is one thing. Blaming yourself for everything that goes wrong and believing you are doomed to failure is another. Grieve how you need to, for as long as is healthy and don’t stay quiet.
P.S.: It is not your duty to protect those that hurt you or to save the world.
