What is emotional healing? It’s the process by which you recover emotionally and mentally from a negative life experience. We can’t keep tough times from occurring in our lives, however, when we are emotionally healthy and balanced, we can deal with those difficult situations (that will inevitably pop up), and then easily move on with our lives.

That’s the problem. If you suffer some injury and have a broken bone, you can see it. You can certainly feel it. You know you have to get it fixed.

This isn’t always the case when your emotions are out of whack.

You might think your responses to your emotional experiences are correct and healthy, but they may be anything but. Here are five situations that could signal you could use some emotional healing, in order to live a more complete and fulfilling life.

 

    1. You Don’t Experience a Wide Range of Emotions

According to psychologist, Robert Plutchik, there are 34,000 different and unique emotions. Professor Plutchik stated that most of us only experience eight primary emotions. These are anger, sadness, disgust, trust, fear, joy, surprise and anticipation. For more information see Plutchik’s Wheel of Emotions

If only a couple of those emotions are present in your day-to-day life, you probably need more emotional balance. This could indicate that you aren’t properly processing situations or are having difficulty in human interactions.

    • Low Self-Esteem and a Poor Self-Image

Do you look down on yourself? It is normal for people to have times when they doubt their abilities. We feel doubtful and then recover and move on. An emotionally unhealthy person has a low sense of self-worth, even when there is evidence this isn’t the case.

 

    • You Have Difficulty Trusting Others

A lack of trust can come from emotional imbalance. Having trust issues isn’t in itself a standalone condition, but it may indicate an underlying disorder. Examples of underlying disorders that have trust issues as a symptom include attachment disorders, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and some personality disorders.

 

    • You Can’t Move Past a Negative Experience

Life can be difficult, at times seemingly impossible. It might look like you’ll never recover in the middle of the most trying hardship. Continue to have faith that you will. Think of all the other trying situations you have been through in your life! Don’t hold on to negative emotions. Practice gratitude for both the great and small things in your life. Have a support network and lean on them when you need to. If for some reason you don’t or can’t enlist a support network, get whatever help you need, especially if you can’t seem to let go of a negative emotion(s).

 

    • Constant Anxiety and Stress

Chronic stress is a killer and has been directly linked to many common causes of death. A constant display of stress and anxiety could mean you’re not always responding to life correctly where your emotions are concerned.

There is no miracle pill you can pop to always enjoy perfect emotional balance. You will have ups and downs, experiencing difficult times that hurt you emotionally, as well as those wonderful moments that lift you up.

For you to live your best life and for those that you love, you need to learn to recognize a negative life experience, give it its due, and then move on. Please consider seeking help, if you find yourself displaying any signs of unhealthy emotions. You are important and worth getting every ounce of help you need to bring out the true and wonderful you.
