Emotional stress is one of the stressors that attaches itself to one of the other stresses we discussed. If your mind is all over the place, allowing you to think about all kinds of thing it will affect your emotions and can cause physical stress. You can’t really be mentally or physically stressed and it doesn’t mess with your emotions. They are sidekicks to yourself.
However you can calm your emotions to began to handle things and alleviate the other stresses. One of the reasons is that out of your mouth your heart speaks. What you talk about, give life to shows where you are. When you say you are over something and you think you are but keep talking about it still has you. When you aren’t phased by something is when you let things go. So how do you handle emotional stress? Getting to the root of what is tugging at your heart. If you are hurt you tend to hurt others in your words, deeds, etc. Lashing out sometimes only reveals what is really going on. However don’t expect the world to give you a pass just because something is bothering you. Everyone around is having a hard time and only really mature people even take the time to weed out your mess and want to assist you. Others will tell you that they are here for you but aren’t. These types of heart issues have to come from you doing some work on the inside out.
I have said it before sometimes writing things down or even saying it gets it out. Once out you can own it and then find ways to fix it. Not everything can be fixed. There will be tines when apologies will never come from the very ones who are fully aware that they did you wrong. There are so many people in the grave who have power on those of us who are living because we won’t forgive. And although some take it as cliché, forgiveness is really for you. It frees you. It makes you whole. You can be whole without someone apologizing to you when you learn to drop the charges against them. It doesn’t mean that they deserve it. It doesn’t mean you will forget about it. It just means you don’t need to carry the weight of what others have done. Let’s be honest, people are rude People are inconsiderate and people say and do mean things. You don’t have to like it but nothing that someone else has done should make you not live the best life that you can. It’s like being miserable while the others around you continue their life. This happens all the time. It’s hard to forgive and move on but its worth your peace to do it.
Take some time not to mask what you feel but to deal with it. You may not be able to get closure but you can close the books to your heart and move to a positive place in your life.
