Letting go of old hurts brings me serenity.

Letting go affirmations

Old wounds can remain inside me for a long time. However, over the years, I have learned to let go of these emotional pangs. When I release myself from old hurts, I feel full of peace and serenity.

I no longer struggle to hold on to pain from my past. I now envision old hurts as balloons. Using visual imagery, I release and I let go the balloons into the sky where they float up, up and away. I am free of them. They are no longer a part of me. We are both released.

Old wounds no longer encumber me. I truly understand the statement, “Let it go.” The lightness I feel by letting go uplifts and energizes me to move forward in positive ways.

Whenever I feel myself becoming weighed down, I look inward to determine the source of the heaviness. Because old hurts do occasionally surface spontaneously within me, I am ready to confront them when they do. I practice saying “good-bye” and letting them go.

When I release an old hurt, my pain no longer shackles me. I tell myself that it is okay to turn loose this emotional sorrow. Tranquility replaces the pain.

Today, I choose to let go of an old hurt – to release something that no longer serves me. I am ready to experience the serenity brought by letting go of past pain.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. Do I cling to any old hurts?
  2. Is it time to give myself permission to let them go?
  3. When old hurts seep to the surface, how can I handle them?

How to let go of hurt

Life is filled with experiences that lead me to feel all kinds of emotions. I embrace feelings that generate optimism. Emotions like happiness, contentment, joy, and curiosity renew my soul. Yet there are emotions on the other end of the spectrum that I also feel, like hurt.

When less-than-positive emotions arise, I make an effort to label what I am feeling and why. Connecting with my hurt helps me to figure out what situation triggered those emotions.

So, when emotional pain envelops me, I first reflect on it. Where did the hurt come from? I endeavor to solve this mystery. However, regardless of the reasons for my emotional experiences, I strive to properly express, manage and release this pain.

Although I contemplate the experience, I also recognize when it is time to say “farewell” to those twangs of emotional hurt.  Sometimes, I say to myself, “Let it go, let it go.”

In order to live a clean, uncluttered emotional life, I learn to release my pain.

I imagine the hurt as a big red balloon filled to near bursting. I visualize myself holding the scarlet balloon. Then, I use visual imagery to release the balloon full of pain into the vast turquoise sky, to be carried far away from me.

Today, I choose to recognize my limitless capacity to let go of hurt. I plan to focus my efforts on releasing my pain to experience the peace and serenity that I deserve. 

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. In what situations am I most challenged when it comes to letting go of my hurt?
  2. I aware of when it is time to release myself from my emotional pain?
  3. How do I “celebrate” letting go of hurt?

I embrace healing and renewal when I let go of past hurt.

embrace healing and renewal

Each morning when the sun rises, I have an opportunity to rebuild myself. I open myself up to healing as a new day dawns. Meaningful renewal occurs when I let go of past hurt and focus on improving each day.

I make a conscious decision to just let go of things that hurt me.

When someone says something unkind about me, I face it head on. Confronting the pain encourages me to assess its validity. I stay away from believing any person’s perspective of me that is inconsistent with how I feel about myself.

Even though some situations damage me, I am confident in my ability to heal. I meditate on my positive traits to reaffirm my love for myself.

That reaffirmation is the first step in renewing my mind, soul, and heart. Each time I experience renewal, I become stronger and more resilient. There are very few things that have the ability to keep me down.

Forgiveness is the second step towards achieving renewal. When I allow myself to pardon someone, I feel a sense of lightness. The emotional burden is lifted and I am able to refocus on me.

Today, I love the person I become when I embrace daily renewal. The challenges in life only serve to build my character and commitment to growth. I am committed to defeating the things that try to harm my spirit.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. What are some of the offenses that are more difficult for me to let go of?
  2. Which strategies can I use to help me put negative experiences behind me?
  3. What practices can I implement to achieve spiritual and emotional renewal?

Emotional Healing for your hurting heart

It’s definitely healthy to experience a range of emotions when you’ve been hurt. However, it’s unwise to have the negative ones consume your existence. You’re better off working towards healing the hurt. That way, you can start to experience joy and happiness again.

Emotional healing is possible if you work at repairing the source of the hurt. As you’ll see, that may mean making some tough decisions:

Remove negative influences from your life.

Release negative thoughts and feelings

If you’re honest with yourself, you’ll realize something important. Some of the negative influences may very well be the people closest to you! It’s going to be a challenge separating from them. But your emotional health is more important that maintaining those relationships.

Are any of your friends guilty of adding fuel to the fire? Can you identify times when they’ve encouraged you to avoid forgiving someone who offended you?

You can very quickly identify people whose advice is riddled with negativity. Avoid allowing the years of friendship to cloud your judgment. You can almost guarantee continued misery if you keep them in your life.

Accept responsibility for your actions.

It’s pretty hard to look in the mirror, right? Deep down, you know your actions resulted in the hurt you feel. But it’s difficult to accept the part you played.

Confront your wrongdoings. Be courageous enough to accept responsibility for your actions.

Inner peace can elude you if you try to cover up the role you played. Inner turmoil can feel just as unbearable as physical discomfort.

In the same breath, be willing to forgive yourself so you can move on to better days ahead.

Live according to your moral compass.

You likely have a set of morals to live by. And while you know they exist, you may sometimes avoid them when making decisions. Abandoning morals is the easiest way to make missteps in life.

Go back to your roots. Take a hard look at what really matters to you. Start to embrace those morals one by one.

Start to repair how you approach situations. If making a decision means abandoning your moral compass, take another route. Just like any other compass, your moral compass keeps you on track. It’s the best way to avoid getting lost in the sea of emotional decision-making.

Commit to daily renewal. 

The road to emotional healing is long and winding. It’s something that usually takes quite a bit of time to achieve. But it can be done! All you need to do is re-commit to the cause every morning when you wake up.

Daily renewal is the best way to turn your healing into habit. When you go for days without that renewal, it’s easy to slip back into the heartache. Be fair to yourself. Remember you deserve the healing.

At the end of each positive day, celebrate your progress. Congratulate yourself for completing one more day of healing and positive living. You’ll find you rest more soundly at night.

Achieving emotional healing isn’t an automatic process. It takes time and a lot of attention. Now is the time to really take care of yourself. Focus on what you need and block out the noise around you. Use these tips to help you on your healing journey.
