Underestimating the emotional pain
Anyone of us will stop doing whatever he is doing the moment he gets injured even if it was a small injury. Few drops of blood coming out of our bodies will make the most of us anxious and will result in delaying our activities for at least few minutes.
We have learned to respond to physical pain right away but unfortunately we have learned to underestimate emotional pain which is usually the root cause of our physical pain!!
Do you know what emotions really are?
Anger, stress, fear and other emotions are no more than the sensation you get when certain physical changes happen in your body.
If you ignored these emotions and acted as if they are not there your mind might increase their intensity in order to draw your attention to them, but since you give higher importance to physical pain, your mind might send you the message in the form of physical pain in order to motivate you to take actions.
Headaches, chronic pains and even colds are usually the result of an emotional pain that you didn’t manage to respond to!! Actually research has shown that more than 75% of the illnesses we get are psychological, this means that most of the physical pain we are experiencing is the result of emotional pain. (see Why do we get sick).
If these strong signals were also ignored your mind will find nothing else to do other than to send you other than the “I lost hope signal” which is otherwise known as depression.
Can you respond?
Some people don’t respond to these messages out of indifference while others don’t respond because they don’t know how to respond.
If you are experiencing a big emotional pain and you don’t know what to do then you must consider seeking help from a friend, a professional or a website like this one. (see How to talking to someone about your problems can make you feel better).
Ignoring your problems will only result in making them accumulate and you will end up with a bigger pile of problems then in the end you will be forced to seek help, So do it now while you can and save yourself from the pain.
