How to Deal with Words Left Unsaid

I am sure every single one of us has had a life situation where we wish we told someone how we truly felt. Whether it was a childhood crush or wishing we spoke up at a group meeting or knew something was happening that wasn’t right.

Fear can immobilize us not to act. Then guilt or regret lingers on and on inside of us. This may continue throughout our lifetime. Guilt or regret can leave us feeling empty, unsatisfied or longing for something we didn’t have the guts to pursue. We all probably heard the old saying “Time heals all wounds.” Does it really?

“Time Heals All Wounds.” Does it really?

There are some wounds that will never heal, until they are dealt with. I know this is easier said then done.

How many of us have been ghosted sometime in our life?

It may have been a relationship, a job offer, a networking acquaintance or a business deal.

Did you want to know the reason why?

Unfortunately, most of the time a reason why, will never come.

Overthinking about the situation can really take a toll on a person. It may cause depression, anger, suicidal thoughts, sadness, ulcers, overwhelm, uncontrollable crying, anxiety attacks and so much more.

Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.” ~ Roy T. Bennett

Time may soften the disappointment, regret and hurt, but it’s still there deep down inside. Time is not the healer, it is the inner work of dealing with the emotions that heals you. Healing requires constant mental work of positive self talk and the ability of letting it go.

How do you get over it and move on?

Recite positive affirmations for healing and to eliminate negative thoughts.

Create a gratitude journal. Everyday in the journal write one to three things you are grateful for in your daily life.

Be aware of your emotions and feelings. Work on halting the complaining and overthinking about the situation.

Spend time with positive, happy and motivated people.

Pick your battles. Sometimes chasing the person may cause more damage to you. If the recipient doesn’t want to hear from you they won’t respond. Start focusing on want you really want in life.

Hire a life coach or therapist to help you let go of the hurt and disappointment.

“Your peace is more important than driving yourself crazy trying to understand why something happened the way it did. Let it go!” ~ Mandy Hale


Isn’t it time to be happy. Being upset, angry and overthinking really isn’t working. Love yourself and those around you enough to let it go. A huge part of healing is believing you deserve a better life of peace, joy and love. ~ Patti
