Some people are suffering a lot of emotional abuse and don't have the slightest clue how much healing they need to get their lives back in order.
Maybe you lost someone you loved so much, and the grief became a permanent part of you. That's not healthy, and emotional healing is much needed.
Some ways you can heal yourself are through meditation, introspection, confrontation, or letting the tides of time wash away the pain.
But obviously, before the healing begins, you have to admit that you need to heal. And so, here are signs that show that you need emotional healing.
1. Mind-numbing Routines
If you feel stuck in a rut in the way you work or relate to people, then understand that there is an emotional aspect to your behavior that you should address. Why should you date the wrong person again and again? Even if it seems like a coincidence, understand that it's not.
Either your emotional pain has given you a warped view of things that makes you pursue the wrong people, or the wounds of your emotional pain are so open that certain kinds of people respond to them.
2. You React Instead Of Thinking
When your emotional wellbeing is messed up, you can't handle emotional situations. In fact, even situations when you need to use your head end up being handled emotionally.
This means you will react to things in ways nobody will understand. You see things from a point of brokenness, not emotional stability.
When your emotional wellbeing is in tatters, and you can't think of ways to get yourself back together, you seek a distraction. The most common form is focusing on your thoughts.
But thinking too much makes you stressed, and that also hinders your productivity. Your mind needs to rest so you can focus some of that energy on emotional healing.
4. You Completely Lack Trust In Anyone
If no one seems trustworthy to you, then it should go without saying that you have a lot of healing to do. A person who cannot trust is very stressed, and other problems like insomnia and lack of satisfaction with life also plague them. So, if you are increasingly losing trust in people, it's time you took time to heal emotionally before you completely wreck yourself.
5. You Lack Intuition
Have you ever felt like you were "off your game" on an issue you always figured out even without thinking?
For instance, in the past, you could identify a sleaze before they opened their mouths. But these days, you notice you are dealing with one when you are in too deep. That's because your emotional pain has dulled your senses. And that has made you blind to things you usually figured out so easily.
Based on what we have just seen, do you think you have some emotional wounds you need to heal? You might not like to admit it, but that's usually the first and the most important step towards healing. So, if you have any reason to believe you need to heal yourself emotionally, make sure you do to get your life back on track.
