I believed that to be a successful therapist is to be able to empathize and connect with all clients. My work with clients is to help them identify resources to cope.

I talk about it. I talk to close friends. I talk to people who I love and trust. It's important to express it instead of keeping it bottled inside, even if expressing it involves talking to a stranger online in a platform like 7cups. Sometimes that's all you might have.

Music and meditation. It also helps me to be outside with nature and taking long walks. The more time you have to clear your mind about things, Youll notice that the pain and hurt will just linger far behind you.

I overcome the pain that is always keeping up with me by focusing on positives and keeping my mind occupied with things that I find enjoyable

Try to keep the mind somewhere else. Doing something, even small things can help. Like listening to music, reading, drawing, just something to keep you busy.

There are different kinds of pain. There are physical, emotional, mental, muscle, etc... pain. Can you please be more specific in what you are trying to say?

Express the pain the hurt made you feel, whether it’s directly to the other person, or through just getting it out of your system (like venting to a friend, or writing in a journal, or writing a letter you never send to the other person). Get it all out of your system at once. Doing so will also help you understand what — specifically — your hurt is about. We don’t live in a world of black and whites, even when sometimes it feels like we do. While you may not have had the same amount of responsibility for the hurt you experienced, there may have been a small part of the hurt that you are also partially responsible for. What could you have done differently next time? Are you an active participant in your own life, or simply a hopeless victim? Will you let your pain become your identity? Or are you someone deeper and more complex than that??
