Here’s How To Let Go Of Hurt And Betrayal
It’s natural to feel hurt and betrayed after experiencing a letdown from someone we care about. But holding onto that hurt can only make things worse. If you’re struggling to let go of hurt and betrayal, here are some tips to help you move on:
- Acknowledge your feelings. It’s important to allow yourself to feel the pain of betrayal. Trying to stuff down your emotions will only make them come out in other ways, like anger or resentment. So let yourself grieve and process what happened.
- Talk about it. Sometimes it can be helpful to talk about what happened with a trusted friend or therapist. This can help you to let go of some of the pain and start working through it.
- Focus on forgiveness. Forgiving the person who hurt you doesn’t mean forgetting what they did or condoning their actions. It’s simply a way of moving on and releasing yourself from the hold that person has on your life. Try to focus on the positive things in your life and let go of the bitterness and resentment you’re feeling.
- Create healthy boundaries. If you’re struggling to let go of hurt and betrayal, it may be because you’re still in contact with the person who hurt you. If that’s the case, it’s important to create healthy boundaries and distance yourself from that person until you’re able to let go of the hurt and move on with your life.
Tips From Mentor, Healer And Author Laurin Witting
On the Blossom Your Awesome Podcast Episode #77 I have mentor, author and healer Laurin Witting on the show sharing her insights. She is the found of Heart Light Wellness and Heart Light Women Circles. She teaches people just this, how to let go of pain and move into joy.
Here are here 3 most powerful insights from the episode –
- Trusting your instincts. Trusting your intuition. We are getting signs and messages constantly. We don’t just notice them. We just don’t know they are important…….one of the things that I teach is that if you notice something it’s important.
- I find this particular true for women, particularly true for women of color, pain is sort of pushed off as, “oh it’s all in your head,” the truth is it may be in your head cause it may be an emotion based pain…..but saying it’s all in your head is dismissing that as the cause. So our pain often gets dismissed and medicated.
- Usually when someone comes to me and something like a past trauma shows up…….if I find it in the body, it’s ready, you’re ready to let it go. Cause they don’t bubble to the top unless you are ready to release that old trauma that fear, that old belief system, whatever it is that’s not serving you anymore.
