Pain caused by emotional distress such as rejection, loneliness, guilt, failure etc., is more deeply felt and cause longer-lasting damage to your health and quality of...
Comments27/06/2016 #33 Vivian ChapmanGood buzz but I'm just not sure it's true. Doesn't physical pain cause emotional pain, if it's bad enough or prolonged enough? If we are whole integrated beings, is it right to distinguish between physical and emotional pain? Physical pain can cause people to commit suicide. One might argue that physical pain has an explanation, therefore others will understand. But will they? Both kinds of pain can cause loneliness, isolation, and desperation. Both body and soul do have remarkable healing mechanisms.18/06/2016 #29 Louise SmithYes @Emilia M. Ludovino. People can improve their emotional life by becoming aware of something that hurts and starting to do something to heal it sooner. Mindfulness, meditation and self reflection through journaling are good for developing this awareness. We have busy lives and need to set aside some time every day to process what has happened.17/06/2016 #23 Franci Eugenia HoffmanEmotional pain is difficult to deal with because it is not always evident to others. Plus, some people harbor their feelings, which your article states numerous health problems. You fix a broken arm by putting it a sling but you can't do the same with your emotions. Insightful buzz, @Emilia M. Ludovino.17/06/2016 #21 Emilia M. Ludovino@Jim Cody @Deb Helfrich @Henri Galvão @Cyndi wilkins - Thank you all for your amazing support in reading the buzz, sharing it all over the internet (special LinkedIn) and for your beautiful comments that resonate so much with my outlook on life and work. Big Big thank you all. It's a privilege to have such beautiful people like you in my connections. Blessings to y'all.17/06/2016 #18 Brian McKenzieLock it down, comparmentalize it, mitigate future losses by always expecting the lie & betrayal - get rewarded often for your new diligence. "Love" is just another happy bullshit lie they use to sell you shit and goad you into a mind numb dumb herded compliant sheep.

I know when I get stuck having a session with another person who doesn't have my blindspots can truly help.17/06/2016 #15 Deb HelfrichThis is a really great article, @Emilia M. Ludovino for those people who still focus solely on their physical health. The mental aspects really do underpin so much of the foundation of our health.
I do have one point to make, though, which is that being introverted is not caused by negative emotions. In fact, most introverts, who recharge by enjoying alone time to think and process life are overall more likely to be in touch with their emotions and be able to deal with them more appropriately because they are not always focused on outward validation from others.
