How to Heal Emotional wounds

  • Why do some emotional wounds never seem to heal?
  • Why would the same person keep suffering from the same wounds for years and years without being able to deal with them?

Some people get emotional wounds and live with them for the rest of their lives, while others manage to get over them.

This article will tell you why some emotional wounds never heal and how you can heal them.

Why some emotional wounds never heal

I have said earlier that the brain was designed to prove whatever beliefs in your mind correct. Let’s suppose that a person had a self-image problem (I wasn’t sure whether he looks good or not).

In such a case, whenever any person rejects that guy, he will assume that he was denied because of his ugly looks, and so his emotional wound will persist.

If that same guy approached a girl and ignored him, he will also believe that this situation happened because of his ugly looks.

This is why some emotional wounds never heal. It’s because some people keep feeding their injuries with incorrect information every day in such a way that allows the damage to grow bigger.

Healing emotional wounds

Now that you know that the mind will try to prove whatever beliefs it has real, it makes sense to heal your emotional wounds by changing your thoughts.

If you changed your beliefs, your mind would try to prove your new beliefs confirmed, and you will get over your emotional wound.

Back to the guy who thought that he was not attractive, if that guy managed somehow to believe that he is not ugly, then the next time someone rejects him, he will never think that it happened because of his looks.

In short, healing any emotional wound can happen by first changing your beliefs.

Now the critical question is, how can someone change his beliefs?
Earlier, I have said that affirmations never work if they didn’t match your internal beliefs because your subconscious mind will regard them as a self-deception attempt.

To change your beliefs, you need to take real-life actions. For example, that guy in the previous model must make friends and get into a good relationship. If he managed to do so, he would prove that he is not ugly and his emotional wound will heal.

In short, emotional wounds can be healed by taking action and not by repeating affirmations.
