Turning pain into poetry & healing - the story of Ruby Dhal, Bestselling author

Sometimes we put our love into others without receiving any in return because we care about them. Sometimes we do it because we don’t see any other way, and sometimes we do it because there’s no one to guide us. As a result, the misery and dejection is inevitable, unless we seek out answers to have a better understanding of what’s going on in our life.

Ruby Dhal - The Healer

With the passing of time, it becomes very hard to maintain relationships; friendships fall apart, families break down and love in a romantic partner is no longer what it used to be. And although most of the time we try our best to mend broken relationships, sometimes a broken heart can’t be mended, especially when the bond has overwhelmed every ounce of a person’s willpower and wellbeing. Often, people give their love to those who don’t deserve it, and after putting their all into others – they still feel miserable and empty because all they receive in response is anguish. 

Sometimes we put our love into others without receiving any in return because we care about them. Sometimes we do it because we don’t see any other way, and sometimes we do it because there’s no one to guide us. As a result, the misery and dejection is inevitable, unless we seek out answers to have a better understanding of what’s going on in our life.

Experiencing turmoil is a part of life, but it’s still vital to understand how to tackle such difficulties. Should we keep waiting and getting suppressed or should we stand up for ourselves and put an end to the anxiety and stress? We should all know how to take care of ourselves, right? We should grasp our self-worth and learn to let go of things and people that no longer make us happy, but how? Do we become ignorant, do we stop caring or do we become reticent? Because a lot of the time we’re taught to surrender in front of our loved ones, but that’s not what will bring ultimate happiness in our life. Sometimes you have to stand up for yourself – just like Ruby.

Ruby (19 October 1994) is someone who has witnessed some traumatic events in her early life, such as leaving her home back in India to move to the UK at the sole age of 3, and subsequently losing her mother a year after. This tremendous loss of her mother was a great turmoil for Ruby, add to that years of discomfort in her childhood, and a difficult heartbreak at 21 and things weren’t looking so great. But Ruby gathered the courage to empower herself through her vulnerabilities and move on with grace.

Today, after years of healing from trauma, she is known as Ruby Dhal. Ruby Dhal, an entrepreneur, influencer, content creator and author of 5 best-selling books of poetry and prose that uncover themes of love, heartbreak, healing, self-love, grief, relationships and self-discovery. Ruby’s sole purpose is to make a positive change in other peoples’ healing journeys through words of encouragement and honesty, and through her raw and vulnerable pieces that she shares to a social media following of over half a million.

Life is a constant flux of loving and learning, of being happy and being broken, and losing friendships, love, and family members is a part of life that we all undergo. Sometimes it occurs through fault of our own and sometimes through events that are out of our control. Everyone wants to be loved but not everyone is ready for the responsibility and pain that it often brings with it. Ruby explains, through her words, YouTube videos, blogs, articles, and books on how to manage these constant changes in our lives and how to find a softer place in our healing journeys.

Ruby motivates her readers to become the best versions of themselves. She elaborates on topics such as self-love and healing and she encourages her readers to learn to accept, to grow and to let go. Often people stay in a toxic relationship because they find it difficult to move on, even if the situation is far from ideal. Ruby, through her words, emphasizes the importance of understanding your worth and doing what’s right for you. No one should ever settle for less than what they deserve, and we must all come to terms with our qualities and imperfections and understand what we can bring to the table so we can positively accept what we’re given too.

Ruby’s books have helped thousands of people all around the world, having crossed over 50,000 copies sold worldwide. Ruby also helps people through guest blogs and articles, her personal blog, her YouTube videos and 1-2-1 healing sessions, available via her website. Presently, Ruby has a readership of over half a million worldwide. Ruby is a substantial embodiment for everyone out there as even after experiencing some of the darkest moments of her life, she has proven herself in every way possible.

“I've stopped.

I've stopped giving

parts of myself

to help heal others,

because in the end

when they start to

feel complete again,

I am the one that

ends up with

all the missing pieces”
