How to Stop Wallowing in Self-Pity

If there was ever a time when you needed to feel better, it’s now. You might be feeling down because of your situation or how life has been treating lately but don’t worry! Self-pity is not the answer and here’s why: Sadness can actually help us understand what we’re going through while giving ourselves compassion for our feelings without getting into an unhealthy spiral that brings little smile along with its bad side effects such as shame (which makes everything worse). So take this opportunity – let go fully into sadness without trying hard enough just seem “right”


What’s The Difference Between Sadness And Wallowing In Self Pity

Feelings such as sadness and grief are natural responses to negative situations. What isn’t normal is feeling happy after a loved one dies or losing an important romantic relationship because it’s only appropriate that we feel these emotions during certain events in our lives – not all of them! These feelings will pass when they should but if you find yourself perseverating on being “over” your pain, take time out for self care by giving priority attention towards your mental health

When bad things happen, they do so to everyone. And when we think that these experiences are limited only for us but also come with no relief or blessing from God in our lives—which can be seen through a rejection on what is really going wrong within ourselves rather then focusing externally at all other people around oneself who may have caused such pain due merely habitually blaming them instead getting rid of any responsibility whatsoever even if it means turning away

When you feel as if no matter what, it’s all useless and nothing will change – that is a mindset of self-pity. Self-Pity focuses on the negative aspects to life without any good; while sadness or disappointment can be emotions which express themselves in different ways depending upon their root cause (grief).

Tips To Help You Stop Wallowing In Self Pity

Here are 11 steps you can take to get out of your own way and stop feeling sorry for yourself.


Stop pushing emotions aside

We have been socialized to hate our emotions. We’re taught that if we feel something deeply, like sadness or anger for example then it must be a sign of weakness and illness- so instead of processing these feelings with maturity in mind (which would require time), most people push them away until they can’t anymore whereupon putting on an “ox grin” as per facade becomes necessary because being sad is just too uncomfortable

We’re not trained how important this process actually may be–it feels better than anything else

Emotions can be tricky to navigate, especially if you’re not used them. As time goes on and the memory starts fading away from your mind’s eye (or maybe just getting dimmer), don’t forget that denial will only make things worse in later stages; ignoring feelings leads people down an inevitable path of self-denial which ends with depression or other extreme emotions such as anger disorder! So why not deal now? Processing through how we feel is important for understanding ourselves better – feeling sad might actually help lead us towards finding meaning behind our painful experiences rather than wallowing endlessly without end . Once happy times come around again after serving their purpose at ending this pity party–wipe away tears while enjoying what remains

Grief is a complicated process. It takes time and it won’t happen in one session, so don’t put yourself under pressure!


Refuse to be a victim

They say that the best way to get over someone is by moving on, but what if you can’t? What If your past keeps coming back and tying everything into knots
in ways both pleasant (love) or painful (humiliation). Maybe this borrowed time isn’t just enough; it feels like its dragging us down deeper every day as if there were some embedded destiny waiting for its chance at our lives – which means we’re never really free from those who hurt us…or even worse: They may continue hurting themselves long after their attention flags because of how much pain has already been given up front!

We all have bad days. But you can’t keep playing the victim card if your life is really nobody else’s fault but yours! So stop feeling sorry for yourself and take back control of what happens in those moments when everything seems overwhelming–even when things seem dark as night because there’ll always be another dawn waiting just around that corner anyway, so don’t give up yet.. It might not happen overnight but one small step at time…
I’m sure we’ve heard this before (and maybe even know how hard these words are)


Evaluate your perception

How many times have we made assumptions about someone only to find out later on that our perception was wrong? Even in court, new evidence can come up and overturn a previous conviction. Why would you want your judgement call taken away from yourself by assuming what seems like “right” now when it might not tomorrow or next week?


Try and focus on the good rather than focus on the bad

The amount of bad luck you would need to have for everything in your life right now, including the small moments that seem so insignificant and unimportant at times, is quite frankly impossible. No matter how much it appears like a dumpster fire on all levels – there’s always something bright about each day! So start or end every single one with some gratitude: write down 5-10 things which bring joy into our lives today (whether big or little), then share them together as family members do when they’re thankful too one another–I know we can feel better if everyone does this regularly because deep down inside I think most people want happiness more than anything

Gratitude helps you see the good in life, and it’s impossible to feel sorry for yourself when your mindset is positive.
When we are grateful for what matters most on a day-to date (our family members or friends), then no matter how much bad stuff happens around us; all of those negative feelings will disappear because there isn’t anything worth being unhappy about!


Spend time with people less fortunate than yourself

Life is full of contrasts, and it can be hard to find the silver lining when you are going through tough times. But there’s one thing that always brings your struggles into perspective: seeing what other people have done with their lives despite being faced with terminal illnesses or hardship at home; hearing stories from friends who escape poverty every day by working two jobs combined just so they don’t wake up hungry like many others in this world do on any given night (and still manage a smile). Spending time around these individuals helps remind us how lucky we really do get – no matter our circumstances-to live out each day as best possible!

There are people all around the world who live in extreme circumstances and yet, they always find a way to be happy. By witnessing their strength you can easily see your own blessings which may make it easier for us when we feel down about our lot in life
I know what its like because I am one of those lucky few with everything going well right now but there’s something beautiful about being able tp appreciate other lives even more given time!


It’s hard but try and stop complaining

Complaining about things that you can’t change does nothing for your mental health or self-confidence. The best thing to do instead of wasting time and energy on complaining, take action in either accepting the situation as it is or making changes so we may all feel better!

Some people think that the best solution to their problems is just complaining about it. It’s not clear how this helps anyone, and in many cases there are much more productive ways you can spend your time such as finding a solution or working on changing what needs changing!


Set yourself realistic goals

When we’re not working towards a goal, it can sometimes feel as if there’s nothing to look forward too. You may function better when striving for an outside target because the sense of accomplishment and confidence that comes with hitting your target is amazing! The memories are enough motivation in themselves; making reaching new goals easier than ever before
Achieving anything takes effort- even something small like getting dressed each morning has become more difficult recently due do constant distractions

We all have moments in our lives where we feel really proud of ourselves. Maybe it was the first time that you managed to pass an exam or get promoted at work, and now everything seems possible for your future career goals! Whatever accomplishment is running through your mind right now – use this as motivation so you can set new personal bests with S-MART technique (set realistic expectations); Achieving them will make us even prouder than before because these accomplishments took hard work but also show how strong & capable people truly are

Specific Goals

You need a clear, unambiguous goal for your to succeed. For example “I want to get fit” is not specific because it could mean any number of things- but when you say something more concrete such as losing 5 pounds then this becomes much easier and achievable!

Measurable Goals

Measurable goals are crucial for achieving your dream. You can track the progress of these measurable steps on a daily basis using an app or fitness tracker, which will help you stay motivated! For example, 500 calories less every day and 30 minutes at exercise 4 times per week would be perfect criteria to measure how successful my strategy is in reducing weight without starving oneself Niche specific websites often have helpful tips about what equipment best suits different kinds lifestyles

Achievable Goals

Your goal should be achievable with the resources you have available, but not so difficult that it’s impossible for you. For example losing 5 pounds in a week might only happen if there are very strict diet rules and rigorous workout routines involved–which isn’t always possible! So an ideal weight loss plan would involve dropping about 1-2 pounds per month (depending on how fast your metabolism works).

Realistic Goals

If you believe that attaining your goal is possible, even if it requires time or resources to do so can be done with effort. You have the power within yourself and all factors are under our control

Time Bound Goals

The steps below will help you set goals with a deadline and end date. If your goal is not bound by time, then there’s no sense urgency to work towards it—you’ll likely put off achieving this until later when the pressure gets too intense or some other reason why now just doesn’t seem right! You should follow these simple guidelines if want well thought out objectives which can be accomplished using discipline & focus so they won’t slip through our fingers unnoticed


Look for the silver lining in situations

The dark cloud that is hanging over you right now may be hiding a silver lining. What’s challenging about your situation makes it an opportunity for growth and development, not just suffering! You can learn things through challenges – even painful ones- if they’re in line with who are becoming taller or stronger versions of ourselves later on down the road then maybe this challenge will help shape us into better people today instead tomorrow morning when everything seems hopeless at first glance


Don’t be lazy or idle

Time is the most precious resource we have. It’s so easy to spend our days feeling sorry for ourselves when there are things in this world that can be accomplished, but it may not make you happy right away – instead give yourself permission start working on building up your relationships and using that energy elsewhere!


Stop the “why me”

Life is hard with no reason or justification. You will never get the answers to why you are experiencing hardship, so it’s best that instead of asking “why me?/Why this happening now?!,” we focus on what our next steps should be in order for things improve again- like asking ourselves “how do I get out?”. These questions lead us towards solutions which move life forward whether they’re small ways such as appreciating all good moments while they last; large changes by moving away from locations where there seems little opportunity available (elevator music may help!), etcetera . Besides if not just being dealt tough hand isn’t enough cause someone might say something along these lines:
I deserve ____ because

Before the bad comes, build a support system that will help you pick yourself back up when it hits.


Start your day with positivity

We are often bombarded with news of doom and gloom on a day-to-day basis. It’s easy to get sucked into the negativity, but there is plenty that should make us optimistic about our future! The world can be an ugly place at times; however good things happen too instead of the bad–so always remember this when looking for entertaining material or checking up weather retention rates may have changed in your area because let’s face it: nothing makes sense anymore anyway right?

Some good in the world is still happening despite all of it. You’d be surprised by how much positive things can go on when you least expect them! Start your morning off with a dose of news to encourage and rebuild hope, or just take some time out every day for yourself – network away while getting pumped up with affirmations that will help get rid any negative feelings coming through during these chaotic times…
I’m sure there are plenty more moments like this around us-we need only look outside our windows (or smartphone screens)
