Why is my Life Falling Apart?
There can be many reasons why your life is falling apart. I’m going to touch on The Law of Assumption to explain why things can be playing out in your world.
We all have our own beliefs and assumptions about life. These beliefs are mainly created in childhood but can also be formed when you’re an adult.
These beliefs and assumptions play out in our lives, without us even realising. When things happening in our 3D world trigger us, it is triggering a limiting belief that we have about ourselves.
Mainly things like, “I’m not good enough” or “I’m not worthy”.
Not only do these beliefs trigger our inner child, they also are reflected back to us in our life. Our mind is constantly working to prove itself right. So if you have a belief that nothing works out for you, it will always feel like nothing works out.
When Your Life is Falling Apart Know it is Temporary
Circumstance change all the time, everything is temporary. Even if it doesn’t feel like it. When you know that you create your life, it gives you your power back.
When you’re going through a hard time, tell yourself “this too shall pass”,
Know that you have the power to change how you think and feel. Remind yourself that what is going on right now is just your old thoughts and beliefs playing out.
Nothing lasts forever and you can start to change how you think right now by affirming that things will get better every day.
Shift to Gratitude When Your Life is Falling Apart
A great way to shift your focus in the moment is to stop and think of all the great things in your life. Write a gratitude list every day, even if you can only think of a few things at first.
If you practice this every day, it will soon start to compound that feeling of gratitude.
The more you focus on the good things, the more good things will happen.
Always try to add things to your list the things you are grateful for yourself. Often, when it feels like everything is falling apart, it’s because we let our circumstances define our worth.
Write down all the things about you that you are proud of and how amazing you are.
Self-Love and Inner Child Work
When you feel triggered by your life, this is your inner child that feels scared and alone. By doing inner child work, you create a feeling of safety and security.
When fears come up or you’re feeling triggered, go within and tell your inner child what they need to hear.
Things like, “I love you, I’m not going anywhere, I’m here for you and you are safe”
Tell yourself you love yourself as much as you can and you are already worthy of a good life!

Work on Your Self-Concept
Your self-concept is how you think about yourself in each area of your life. It’s what you believe about yourself and how others see you. You could have a really good self-concept in one area and a not so good one in another area.
If you believe that life is hard for you or nothing ever works out for you, you will continue to manifest this in your life.
Your self-concept is everything because this is how you think of yourself. How worthy you think you are and if you think you are good enough.
If you don’t feel worthy, you will find it hard to keep what you manifest in your life.
Working on your self-concept will change your life.
Start to notice what your dominate thoughts are about yourself. Especially when things feel like they are going on. What thoughts do you have when you are triggered?
This will give you a insight to what your self-concept is.
A great way to change your self-concept is to flip these thoughts and create some affirmations with them. Affirm these new affirmations every day and you will soon start to feel differently about yourself and your life.
Calm You Nervous System and Self-Care
If you have suffered any kind of trauma, I would highly suggest working on calming your nervous system. Yes, I believe our thoughts create our reality. However, if you are feeling panicky in your body it can be hard to challenge your thoughts.
Even focusing on your breath and doing breathing exercises when you feel triggered can make a huge difference.
Often when we feel triggered, our fight or flight is activated and we are in survival mode. We need to ground ourselves in these moments and bring ourselves back to the present moment.

Self-care is so soothing when you feel like your life is falling apart. Focusing on your own needs and taking care of yourself is a huge act of self-love.

Try Journaling When Your life is Falling Apart
Journaling is an amazing tool to help you change your life. There are many different ways to journal.
You can journal all your thoughts to get them out of your system. I would recommend either burning or ripping up any negative journaling, as a letting go practice.
You can also use journaling prompts, to help you discover more of yourself. I have some free self-love journaling prompts here and my Self-Worth Journal has 100 self discovery prompts.
You can also script out how you want things to be. This is a great way to shift your state and feel good again. You can get as creative as you want. Start by writing out how you day would have gone if everything was going your way or how you would like your day to go.
Start Focusing on What you Want in Life
Now we know that our thoughts and beliefs shape our life, it’s start to practice on thinking about we do want. Try not to give your circumstances any power over you and practice focusing on what you want instead.
Use your affirmations every day to refocus your mind.
As you go though your day, think about how you want things to go and how you want to feel. If you do this every day, you will soon become a master of shifting your state of being.
For example, when you wake up, affirm that “today is going to be a great day and I’m going to feel amazing”.
Set intentions every morning, don’t get too hung up if some of your intentions don’t comes true. This is just a practice to focus on what you want to happen.
The more you do this, the more positive your mindset will be.
When your life is falling apart, remember it’s an opportunity for growth, self-discovery, and personal transformation.
Understand this is temporary and know you can shift your mind to what you want to create. Practice self-love, self-care and gratitude every day.
Work on your self-concept and how you feel about yourself.
Remember, this is a journey and every little step counts.
And always be kind and gentle to yourself, you’re doing an amazing job!
Lots of love
