Emotional pain comes in many forms. It may be a sudden tsunami of reaction to a disturbing event, or it can be a mild but persistent undertow from an on-going issue, dragging us down. What do we do when these triggers arise, which may be external or even from our own thoughts?
In essence there are two reactions: fight or flight. The fight reactions are more obvious, with aggression, blame and bubbling anger to self or others. But the ones to watch for are the flight reactions such as distraction, avoidance and denial. They can become so entrenched that it just becomes what we do and who we are.Roblox HackBigo Live Beans HackYUGIOH DUEL LINKS HACKPokemon Duel HackRoblox HackPixel Gun 3d HackGrowtopia HackClash Royale Hackmy cafe recipes stories hackMobile Legends HackMobile Strike Hack
Whichever patterns you experience, ask yourself this simple question: are your strategies working? How quickly does the affect of the emotional trigger last? All day?
So here’s a simple technique. I’ve just used it this morning. When you become aware that something is slowly but surely eating you up from the inside, you simply stop and face it, and challenge it to do it’s worst. So with the lingering worry I had this morning, I just sat and gave this feeling 100% attention, and invited it to go right ahead and destroy me. It almost instantly dissolved.
I don’t know if this will always work for everyone, but my personal experience is that we have reserves of strength and resilience that far exceed most of what our emotional demons can match.
Of course, building that inner strength is the key, and for that, regular mindfulness meditation is the best way IMHO!
