How To Heal From Emotional Pain
We all have been emotionally hurt sometime in our lives, many times this experience triggers severe anxiety we just have a very difficult time recovering from. Anytime we are emotionally hurt our hearts are broken, a broken heart is the most difficult pain to heal from any other I have experienced in my entire life. These emotional painful times in our lives are the most dramatic experiences we have to deal with, any type of emotional dramatic experience can be a trigger for severe anxiety and depression.
Physical & Emotional Pain
Physical pain is much easier and quicker to heal from, there is a pretty good set of methods to heal from your physical pain. Now for your emotional pain it is much more complicated, everyone has some anxiety from a broken heart but everyone’s symptoms and severity is not the same. Some of the most common symptoms from anxiety from emotional pain are:
Guilt Blaming Yourself
Negative Self Talk & Thinking
The Loss Of Love
Dwelling On The Past
Low Self Esteem
Feelings Of Being Broken Inside
No Motivation To Move On
For many people a good start for recovering from emotional pain is to start writing your thoughts and feelings in a diary or journal, this is an excellent method for those of you who are similar to myself and are not comfortable sharing your thoughts and feelings with another person at this time.
Time & Patience
This type of healing takes time and patience on your part, this is a time in your life you need to treat yourself extra special. Everyone heals at a different rate from this type of pain, as hard as this will be you must forgive yourself and the person who broke your heart. Making this completely clear to you, you are not forgiving the other person for their sake you are forging them so you can start healing much sooner. Dwelling on the past and holding grudges only hurts yourself from healing and will also make your anxiety much more severe.
What Can I Do To Heal
Now its been enough time for you to begin to work on moving on with your life, as you move on with your life your self esteem will improve once again and your anxiety will return closer to normal. one thing which really helped me get back on track was me getting a pet, having a pet forces you to give and receive emotional love once again. It is extremely difficult not to feel loved when your living with your pet, if your not a pet person here are some next steps.
Positive Self Talk
Focus On Your Strengths
Making New Goals
I decided to write this article because it took me way too long myself to heal from my broken heart in the past, if I had used these myself I would have healed much quicker and been able to deal with my anxiety issues much sooner. You must move through these steps at your own pace, pushing yourself is not an option. Pushing yourself will only increase your anxiety, this will actually push you backward not forwards. I know this from my own experience, a broken hurt mends slower then any other part of our bodies.
