nice Crystol! and Gandhi said ;'Nobody can hurt me without my permission.' If we could all remember that how much more peaceful out hearts and the world. it also entails a broader more expansive understanding of Hurt. It beyond our feelings and reaches to our Soul and Heart. We are more empowered when we Know and Live this... and then our feelings are also safe from hurt.

Enough is enough when it takes more out of you to hang onto things (anger, resentment, guilt, hurt) than it does to let them go. All it takes is a change in perspective. You cannot change anything about anyone but yourself and how you react or don't react to other people. Eleanor Roosevelt said no one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

Forgiveness is a gift for-giving yourself. Let go of your need to be right and shift the focus to DOING right. Read A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson; read Your Truth is Calling by Scott Abel.

And amen to the exercise, meditation, prayer, etc; whatever it takes to quiet your mind, stop your racing thoughts, and just BE, even for a few minutes a day. Part of enjoying the blessings you have is consciously expressing your gratitude, daily. What you focus on expands. Focus on all that is RIGHT and GOOD, and give thanks for it (doesn't matter whether you're giving thanks to God, Buddha, or the spaghetti monster... just adopt an attitude of gratitude).

these are hard but, sadly, common issues.
first create a space and place where you can be quiet, breathe, write, create through art, rest your mind and your body.
Regularly use physical exercise as a way to help defuse stress.
I am glad that you are not engaging in Battle as that is a debilitating choice to personal energy and soul.
However, yes stand up for yourself, but choose how and when.
See if there is some kind of group around - who meets for coffee, through an exercise class, an art or writing class.
Take time to truly see and acknowledge what is good and beautiful all around you - the sun coming up, a garden, children playing, good music, whatever makes you feel warm and strong and happy. When you can draw on what is outside of yourself as a way to connect to Joy then it helps move that through and into your own soul.
I wish you well and stay in touch as you wish

Who we are and how we Be in the world, has a direct impact on how we handle our health and wellness issues. Any real experience of our health encompasses the trilogy - the physical aspects, how we think about it, and that intangible 'other' that gives us grace and gets us through. This applies to mental and physical health equally. if we can cultivate our spiritual aspect of the triad, it will be there when we most need it, as we face our own aging and illness as well as when assisting others. This group is here to share resources and avenues to connecting the three, most particularly to embracing and articulating our personal appreciation of Spirit. This group does not advocate for any particular brand of spiritual practice or religion. Simply by sharing your stories, pointing us toward books, articles, poems, art, workshops, or other expressions of Spirit and health you will contribute to each individual's personal journey.
