You might be thinking that I am talking about the emotional pain that results from a problem that you are aware of, like a recent breakup or a work-related issue.
But actually, the emotional pain I am talking about is one that can ruin your life without even noticing that it exists.
The actions that we do in our lives don’t always bring pleasant outcomes, and usually, the subconscious mind finds itself facing tremendous pain that results from the consequences of these actions.
Unfortunately, the subconscious mind doesn’t always manage to suppress all the bad memories and events you have been through, so some of this pain remains. You might not notice that this pain is there unless you focus on it simply because you got used to its presence!!
Are you Living with Emotional Pain?
If you suddenly entered a room that has a foul smell and stayed there for a few minutes, you won’t smell that bad smell anymore.
The same happens when you use perfume, then a few moments later, you stop smelling it; this happens because our minds get used to repetitive patterns and then ignore them.
- But what if the repetitive patterns were guilt, sadness, or even helplessness?
- What if you got used to feeling bad to the extent that you don’t notice that anything is wrong while you are actually feeling bad!!
If you were unable to break a bad habit for years yet, you are acting as if you don’t can, re you might be living with a pang of carried-over guilt that you got used to!!
If you had big dreams that you never managed to achieve, you might be living with sadness, helplessness, and mild depression, even though you never think of them anymore!!.
You might be wondering how someone can live with bad emotions without affecting his ability to feel bad when facing new problems?
Actually, you will be living with the emotional pain that you are used to. Still, whenever another problem occurs, you will experience intense emotions that others don’t experience when they face similar problems.
Examine your emotions deeply
Meditation might help you understand your emotions but staying alone in bed thinking will do the job too. Try to analyze your emotions to determine whether you are really feeling fine or just got used to bad emotions.
You might discover that you are living with guilt that comes from constantly violating your values, or you might find that you are living with depression that resulted from not living the life you want.
Whatever the emotion you find, your task should be examining the reasons behind it and working on eliminating them. Why do you keep making a certain habit for years, then live with pain and guilt forever? Why would you give up your dreams and live depressed for the rest of your life?
Don’t you want to be happy? If your answer is yes, you must get rid of this emotional pain before seeing the light.
