How To Deal With Emotional Damage

Published on

In this Current Generation, almost everybody knows what emotional damage is. If you don’t, then it is the way a person feels after having had their feelings hurt as a result of traumatic experiences or bad situations they have been in before.

Here is what Emotional damage truly is and what causes it:

First, I’ll take you through what causes emotional damage.

Traumatic Experiences
Should it happen that you ever survive a traumatic experience, like an accident, war, or sexual assault, then there are high chances that you can have a severe and long-term effect depending on how the impact was on you.

Loss
If you lose a loved one, lose your job, or are going through a breakup of some sort or divorce, that can cause some serious damage to your mental health if you can’t control it.

Mental Health Issues
These are what most people are experiencing at the moment, especially Gen Z. Disorders such as depression, anxiety, or even PTSD are serious mental health issues.

Childhood Trauma
As far as many don’t really take this as something that can put you down, trust me, there are those who aren’t as strong as some of you.

Experiencing abandonment at such an early stage or any other form of abuse when you were little is something that can lead to emotional damage that extends to adulthood.

Drug Addict
The side effects of abusing any drug-related substance, whether it is for the first time or not, as long as you’ve exceeded and taken an overdose, will definitely affect your behavior and brain, which can lead to emotional damage.

It is not easy to deal with emotional damage; it is a journey that takes time and effort. It is just like healing a wounded wound; every day you feel the pain, but you definitely know I am making progress as long as I am doing what is right.

Consider abiding by this:

Accept the Situation You are in.
The first step towards healing is acceptance. The moment you tell yourself that, you are certain that it won’t haunt you as much as it did when you were refusing to associate with it, accept it, and feel it. This will help you express your emotions in a more positive way.

Prioritize Yourself More often.
Blend and plug in activities and experiences that contribute to and bring you happiness, events that make you forget your problems at least for a while, but I am not strongly advocating you go drinking heavily, do things like skydiving, swim, eat, race, or do stuff that is good and right.

Seek Professional help.
There are those who will need therapy sessions and counseling more often so that they don’t slide along the way.
Actually, having a conversation with a trained psychologist can help you address the root cause of your problem. A problem shared is a problem half solved; don’t let it kill you.

Be Cautious With yourself.
You know what brought about that trauma and that bad experience; how about now you start threading carefully so that you don’t end up in the scenario that you were in?
Always avoid any circumstance that might trigger negative emotions.

Go Slow On yourself.
Recovering and healing take time, and so it is important to put your time and effort into them. Be kind to yourself.
