The strong emotion which we all feel within ourselves, the desire which keeps life going, is known as passion and it varies with each human and is present in all forms like, singing, dancing, writing, poetry, acting, cooking, making money and more. 

Passion is the fuel of your life and it must be kept charged up with consistent and focused actions. Sometimes, however, in the race of life, we often leave our passions behind. But we don’t forget it, we just need to refuel it.

Here are 10 powerful tips to help you refuel your passion:

1. Go Back to The Beginning

Remember why it all started. It sounds cliché, but going back to the first time you started acting upon your passion really helps you when you’ve come to a halt. Did you learn music to earn a sense of self or started painting because it gave you peace of mind? Did you start writing to let out all the bad emotions and preserve the good ones? Find out what made you passionate about your passion and maybe you will find new reasons to start them again.

2. Discover Your Why

Instead of being disappointed with yourself ask yourself why. Why did you stop following your passion? Why did you start working towards it? Why do you love what you do? This will help you in rediscovering what motivated you which will get you back in the game. So, what is your why?

“It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dream of meeting your heart’s longing.” – Oriah

3. Have A Balanced Emotional State

Being able to manage and be in control of your emotional state plays a huge role in the normal functioning of your life. If you’re stressed about work or depressed and angry at yourself and constantly questioning your worth, then you will never be able to grow and flourish in your life and have your passions fuelled. 

Take care of your emotional health by exercising, meditating or listening to your favorite songs. To be able to refuel your passion, you must first be in control of your emotional state.

4. Read Books

There are many books written specifically on how to ignite your passion and how to keep taking action towards fulfilling it. Books are the food for your brain and will get your creative juices flowing. So grab yourself an inspiring book or any other book which you love to open up your mind and guide yourself back towards your passion.

5. Watch Movies

If reading isn’t your thing, then you can watch movies at ifvod TV which could ignite your passions and help you get in touch with your creativity. The best thing about movies is that they are only a few hours long and won’t require much of your time. If you have a busy schedule, then movies will give a visual aspect to recharge your passions.

6. Be Consistent

Consistency is the key to the successful completion of any task. It doesn’t matter if you couldn’t play your piano piece correctly or couldn’t finish the task at work before the time it was due, what matters is that you commit to doing it every day without fail. Being consistent keeps you driven towards the end goal.

7. Become Part of a Community

Joining a community with people who share the same passion as yours helps in keeping your passions fuelled. If you find yourself unmotivated with a lack of inspiration, you can always count on your community or groups to guide you back to it.

8. Be Patient

You won’t recharge your passion in a day. It’s a long and laborious process and you must be patient with yourself throughout this journey. If at all, you find yourself being harsh with yourself then take a break, meditate or talk to other people about how you feel. But don’t give up. Being patient helps you a lot in the long run.

9. Do What You Love

If you don’t love what you do, then you’re bound to get disinterested. Having a passion for what you enjoy doing is also an essential part of refuelling your fire. Doing what you love ensures that you enjoy doing it, find what you love and work towards it instead of forcing yourself to do something you don’t like.

“What’s money? A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do.” – Bob Dylan

10. Embrace the Journey

Above all, it is imperative that you accept your journey instead of beating yourself up for not reaching your goal. No goal has ever been accomplished without an interesting journey. So, embrace it.

Do what suits you the best towards refuelling your passion to keep your spirits high.

5 Indicators of Unresolved Attachment Trauma

Published

on

Emotional Attachment Trauma

Trauma caused during specific stages of a child’s development, known as attachment trauma, can have lasting effects on a person’s sense of safety, security, predictability, and trust. This type of trauma is often the result of abuse, neglect, or inconsistent care from a primary caregiver.

Individuals who have not fully processed attachment trauma may display similar patterns of behavior and physical or psychological symptoms that negatively impact their adult lives, including the choices they make in relationships and business.

Unfortunately, many people may not even be aware that they are struggling with trauma. Research estimates that 6% of the population will experience PTSD in their lifetime, with a majority of males and females having experienced significant trauma.

Unresolved attachment trauma can significantly impair the overall quality of a person’s life, including their ability to form healthy relationships and make positive choices for themselves. One well-known effect of unhealed attachment trauma is the compulsion to repeat past wounds by unconsciously selecting romantic partners who trigger their developmental trauma.

However, there are other less recognized but equally detrimental signs of unprocessed developmental trauma.

 

Five possible indications of unresolved attachment trauma are:

 

1.  Unconscious Sabotage

Self-sabotage is a common pattern among individuals with unprocessed attachment trauma. This cycle often begins with hurting others, which is then followed by hurting oneself. It is also common for those with attachment trauma to have heightened emotional sensitivity, which can trigger this cycle.

This pattern can manifest in lashing out, shutting down, or impulsive behavior that leads to feelings of guilt, shame, and self-loathing.

Many people with attachment trauma are not aware of their wounds and operate on survival mode, unconsciously testing or challenging the emotional investment of those around them, and pushing them away out of self-preservation and fear of abandonment.

This can lead to a pattern of making poor choices for themselves based on impulsivity.

 

2. Persistent Pain

 
Chronic pain is a common symptom that can stem from early trauma. Studies have shown a connection between physical conditions such as fibromyalgia, headaches, gastrointestinal issues, insomnia, muscle aches, back pain, chest pain, and chronic fatigue with the aftermath of chronic developmental trauma, particularly physical abuse.
 
Research has found that individuals with insecure attachment styles, such as anxious, avoidant, or disorganized, have a higher incidence of somatic symptoms and a history of physical and emotional abuse in childhood compared to those with a secure attachment style.
 
 

3. Behaviors That Block Out Trauma

 
Trauma blocking practises are used to avoid the pain and memories connected with traumatic events.
 
Emotional numbing, avoidance, and escape via briefly pleasurable activities that distract from terrible memories or suffering are common examples. Unfortunately, this escape habit stops people from successfully processing and recovering from their trauma.
 
Furthermore, when the pain resurfaces, more and more diversions are necessary to continue ignoring it. This can be seen in compulsive behaviours such as drug or alcohol addiction, emotional eating, numbing oneself through relationships, workaholism, excessive or dangerous exercise routines, compulsive internet or technology use, or any other compulsive behaviour used to distract yoursef from intrusive thoughts and emotions.
 
These actions have the potential to prolong a cycle of avoidance and repression, preventing persons from healing and progressing.
 

4. A strong need for control

 
It’s understandable that some people may struggle with control issues in their adult lives, especially if they felt helpless or vulnerable during their childhood.
 
This can happen if someone had an overbearing caregiver who didn’t let them make their own choices, expected too much from them, or didn’t take care of them properly. As adults, they might try to control everything in their life to feel more in control and less anxious or scared. This might be because they didn’t feel like they had control over their life when they were a child.
 
It’s important to remember that everyone’s experiences are different and it’s okay to seek help if you’re struggling with control issues.
 
 

5. Psychological Symptoms That Are Not Explained

 
Individuals with a history of developmental trauma may experience a range of psychological symptoms, including obsessive-compulsive behavior, intense mood swings, irritability, anger, depression, emotional numbing, or severe anxiety.
 
These symptoms can vary in intensity and may occur intermittently throughout the day. People with this type of trauma may attempt to “distract” themselves from these symptoms by denying or rationalizing them, or may resort to substance abuse or behavioral addictions as coping mechanisms. This can be a maladaptive way of trying to numb their symptoms.
 
 

What to do next if you’re suffering from emotional attachment trauma?

 
Everyone’s experience of healing from trauma is unique. It’s important to be aware of whether you have experienced childhood developmental trauma and how it may be affecting your relationships as an adult. Sometimes, the effects of trauma can be overwhelming and we may try to push them away or avoid them.
 
If you notice that you’re engaging in these behaviors, it’s important to seek help from a trauma therapist who can support you on your healing journey. Remember, you’re not alone and it’s never too late to start healing.
 

There are several ways that people can work to overcome emotional attachment trauma:

  1. Therapy: One of the most effective ways to overcome emotional attachment trauma is through therapy. A therapist can help you process your experiences, understand the impact of your trauma on your life, and develop coping strategies to manage symptoms.
  2. Support groups: Joining a support group of people who have had similar experiences can be a great way to find validation, empathy, and a sense of community.
  3. Mindfulness practices: Mindfulness practices such as meditation, pilates, prayer time with God or journaling can help you become more aware of your thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations, and develop a sense of spiritual connection and self-regulation.
  4. Trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy (TF-CBT): This is a type of therapy that is specifically designed to help individuals process and recover from traumatic events.
  5. Building a safety net: Building a support system of people you trust, who are there for you when you need them, can help you feel more secure and safe in your life.

It’s important to remember that healing from emotional attachment trauma is a process and it may take time. It’s also important to find a therapist who is experienced in treating trauma, who you feel comfortable talking with, and who can help you develop a personalized treatment plan.
