When I was going through stuff, I felt nothing but heartache. I found it hard to eat, hard to sleep, I was always deep in thoughts…I was literally depressed.

And in these moments, I said to myself. “I can’t heal on my own”. I felt the whole healing process was beyond my power. And some days, I talked to few friends; so I could heal faster. But for a situation like mine, the more I talked about it, the harder it was for me to heal; because I kept on repeating the same thing, and it was like I was refreshing my memory of the pain.

Don’t get me wrong, talking to someone is actually part of the healing process; but it doesn’t heal you completely.

After months of not getting better, I realised only I had the power to heal. It was something that could change everything; and that’s DECISION. Everything comes down to the decisions you make, and if you change your decision, it changes everything. Because your life comes down to your DECISIONS. It was at that moment I decided “I won’t let this get the best of me” and so I pushed through.

If you don’t decide on healing, You never will. Change begins with the mind and the brain. The mind is associated with the brain. Every minute of everyday, your body is physically reacting in response to the thoughts that runs through your mind.

So, whichever way you channel your mind, it has the ability to change your brain. And that brain has the ability to control what you think and how you feel. You have the ability to decide whether or not you want to heal.

After months of soughting on how to heal elsewhere, it took me 5minutes to decide that I wanted to heal myself; and it happened!

It’s your job to make decisions, it’s your job to make a change in your life.
