7 Tips To Overcome Your Negative Emotions

Emotions are what express the present status of any human being. It is the positive thinking that can drive you to success.

On contrary, negativity can make you the loser of your life. In today’s life it’s very easy to fall prey to negative thinking. Negative emotions are just like a movie which can only give you pain and loneliness many times throughout your life.

Negative emotions consume your inner energy and peace and steal your present from your life. The most menacing problem of these emotions are that once you start thinking about them, they start to accumulate more and more and become stronger which will make it harder to change. If you know a few tricks, you can easily overpower your adverse emotions and achieve whatever you want from your life.

So, let’s check out 7 great tips to overcome your negative emotions:

 

1. Face the mirror

It is a common phenomenon that humans can see the reality about himself/herself only by standing in front of the mirror. This case stands true in case of negative thinking too. Whenever you feel yourself to be the slave of your emotions that hurts you, stand in front of the mirror and dare to look into your eyes in the mirror.

You will see your dull face due to that negativity within your mind. And as you come to know that you are becoming dull, start energizing your mirror image. Boost him to expel that thinking. It has been seen that a person can perform a task only when he has the inner desire to do that task. Similar to that, when you see yourself within the mirror, your mind will stop bringing negative thoughts and in reverse to that, it will start boosting your soul to energize.

“Negative emotions like hatred, destroy our peace of mind.” – Matthieu Ricard

2. Recall your happy moments

Whether it is a happy occasion or a sad one, memories are made to delight you. There are many situations, when your negative emotions start hurting your inner peace. In that case, old and happy memories are the best remedy. Whenever you feel unhappy, start recalling your happiest moments. Within minutes, you will see a smile on your face. A new charm will replace the dullness.

 

3. Get surrounded by cheerful people

Loneliness is the home for cynical feelings. The best alternative for it is to change your environment. Whenever you feel like negative sentiments and you are alone, go out to some pragmatic area. You can call your friends and run a get together. Actually, in terms of science, whenever a task is allotted to the mind, it stops working on the existing one and starts thinking about the new task you put in your focus. Your mind will get busy on planning the meeting with your friends and all your destructive emotions will come to an end.

 

4. Start your hobby

When you find yourself uncomfortable because of negative emotions, start doing your hobby. Many people love to read books, many love to sing, others love to listen to music. All these hobbies are the best medicine to curb adverse emotions present within your body.

As soon as you notice negativity, start your hobby, like for example start reading a book you love to read. Your mind will automatically get diverted from recalling negative thoughts. Also, by reading your favorite book, your mind as well as your body will feel relaxed and positive emotions start to spark within you.

5. Pursue meditation/yoga

It has been scientifically proven that meditation is the best medicine to each and every mind related problems. Whether you are suffering from low concentration or you are having a bunch of adverse sentiments within yourself, meditation has the best outcome. Start meditating by closing your eyes. Within darkness, try to concentrate on an imaginary source of light. Meditation is suggested to the people of every age group.

The main use of meditating is to bring freshness into your mind. With regular practice, you will be able to control your thoughts and as you will become the master of your mind, there will not be any negativity within your mind. So, from now on, add meditation or yoga within your daily routine. The best time to perform them is in early in the morning.

 

6. Read positive quotes

Your mind thinks pessimistic only because of defeat, but with every defeat, you got an experience of how you cannot win your battle. What if you command your mind to only have positive emotions? It will act accordingly. If you need motivation, you need positive feelings. To get positive feelings, you need some positive source to read. Reading motivational quotes is a good option. The internet is filled with populous motivational, inspirational quotations. Start reading those quotes that enforce your mind to developing efficacious feelings daily.

“The sign of intelligent people is their ability to control their emotions by the application of reason.” – Marya Mannes

7. Start laughing

We all know that laughter is the best medicine. Whenever pessimistic emotions overpower your mind, leave everything aside and start laughing loudly. It may sound silly, but this is also known as laughing therapy to bring life back to hopeless people. To convert your negative emotions into positive ones, come to a place of peace and start laughing loudly. Laugh artificially once, twice, or three times. Later you will automatically start laughing naturally. To implement this, you must not bother about what others will say after seeing me laugh like this.

 

With these above mentioned golden tips, you can overpower your negative emotions and mold them into positive emotions.

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.
