Finding Emotional Healing
Emotions are a powerful force. They make us feel good, happy, peaceful and content. We may experience the warmth of love, friendship, excitement, and nervousness—all part of the human condition. Emotions also can rip apart any human when it is not handled correctly. Things like hate, anger, flying off the handle, and not being able to see a clear picture all can distort our feeling and thoughts. You can stuff emotions all you want, but those negative ones will find you. What can we do to avoid a breakdown? Just like the body, the mind needs to be taken care of. It is no longer a stigma to admit that we are struggling mentally—unlike it was years ago. Here are four strategies you can use to find emotional healing and face our emotions.
