Start by paying attention to your thoughts and feelings and avoid feeling sorry for yourself. This narrative won't help and you have the power to change it. Instead of feeling sorry for yourself try to see what's the lesson to take from that event that left you feeling like that. Get up, shake off the dust and bounce back! I know that it's easier said than done, but it's a process, a long and worthy one.
Get your power back. Others don't have to rule how you feel and you have a saying in that. This is a major energy drainer for empaths, which is getting extremely affected by the words, actions, or energy of others. If that's the case for you, remember that that energy is not yours and give yourself some space. Also, if you feel resentful, angry, or disappointed with someone, you are giving them the power to transform how you feel. A great tool to prevent this from happening is being grateful and forgiving, and remember that to forgive is not the same as to allow things from happening again, or to forget, it is releasing yourself from bad energies, accepting, and letting it go.

Embrace the change and don't worry too much about things you can't control. Be prepared though! Accepting change is a significant aspect of building mental strength because life is ever-changing and we must adapt.
Dwelling on the past serves you no good, neither feeling worried about the future. Do your best to resolve your past, once again forgiveness, acceptance, and gratitude are important to help you grow and get unstuck. Regarding the future, set your intentions and values in the clearest possible way and be prepared for the unforeseen and this can be as simple as having a backup plan if something doesn't happen as expected.
Don't get discouraged if you don't get immediate results, great things take time.
