5 Signs That Say You Need Emotional Healing

Human beings are nothing without their emotions. It affects our day and our mood in general. However there are times when we feel especially low and drained, and that shows that it’s time for some emotional healing.

“Trauma is personal. It does not disappear if it is not validated. When it is ignored or invalidated the silent screams continue internally heard only by the one held captive. When someone enters the pain and hears the screams healing can begin.” ― Danielle Bernock on Emotional Healing

2) You end up reacting rather than responding

Your daily life seems to leave you emotionally exhausted. You don’t feel like doing anything. However, you cannot become numb to your surroundings.

You need to let yourself feel all that you go through otherwise it will be more detrimental to your mental health.

It kick-starts the healing process. Reacting makes you tired and confused, you feel the mad rush within but feel lost.

You don’t know how to address this mess within. However, to take your time and carefully analyze the situation and then responding accordingly is a better approach to a happier self.

Sorting out this blur will help us to be clearer about ourselves. Embrace the good and positivity around you.

No matter how difficult, go ahead and make someone happy. Their happiness will flow through you and warm you up.

4) When the negativity fills you

Do not harbour negative emotions as it will only worsen your emotional state. Emotions like fear and anger are harmful in the long run.

We should not let ourselves be controlled by them. Try and analyze the reasons that make you angry or scared and try to tackle them.

Observe yourself and channel that anger and fear into something productive. Try and let go of emotions that make you uncomfortable and affect you a lot.

It will do you no good to hold on to things that give you pain. It cannot happen instantaneously but baby steps will bring forth major changes.

5) Take the step towards a better self

Learn to love yourself. It might be hard but take the plunge. Go that extra mile.

Pamper yourself – take a solo trip, watch a movie, treat yourself to some delectable cakes and pastries, go out and party with your friends.

Do what your heart says. Don’t hold yourself back any longer.

Don’t let stress and pressure eat away your life. Free yourself from the negativity, be it horrible ex-partners, selfish friends, or ruthless bosses. Distance yourself from them, for your own sanity.

Never let others walk all over you and label you as weak for your kindness and generosity. You are brilliant. You are worth all the goodness. Let no one tell you otherwise.

Lack Of Individuation: From Codependent Chameleon To True Self


Being Codependent means being unable to identify with your own feelings and needs. Here's the process of individuation that'll help to regain your true self!

When we first met, I told my husband I was very adaptable. I didn’t realize the price of being a chameleon until I started recovery and my journey of individuation. By then I was dead inside. I’d spent years adapting to abuse and belittling that I’d absorbed. I was detached from my feelings and needs, and passion eluded me.

By accommodating a narcissistic mother, I’d long been disconnected from my true self. I’d learned to play various roles, but who I was wasn’t something I thought much about.

Do you need some words of encouragement to let go of the anger and bitterness of the past? Then read through these quotes about forgiveness.

Lack of forgiveness takes a hold of your life and it comes in many forms such as breakups, trauma from family, or betrayal of any kind. This can easily lead to resentment taking root in your heart.

It's crucial to realize that choosing to forgive doesn't mean you're downplaying or justifying the hurt someone has caused you; rather, you’re making room for true joy in your mind and heart.
