When we’re not emotionally present, we will fail to make the connections between what we think and what we feel.
Traumatic experiences will always prevent emotional development. Pain brought about through trauma isn’t always something we recognise, or we may know and keep it to ourselves. It’s rare we open up and say what we feel.
“Trauma isn’t what happens to you, it’s what happens inside you.”- Tim Ferriss. Although trauma happens to us, the biggest trauma is keeping the pain and confusion around our experiences to ourselves. It’s the silent battles that do us more harm, than the trauma itself.
The mind is often distracted, stuck in the past, or it’s on other things. But a struggle in one area of our life will spread into other areas, unless we’re prepared to address and deal with our struggles. We can never make the link between our struggles and staying current without addressing those struggles.
Failure doesn’t prejudice. How our mind interprets what we remember is responsible for us failing. With work on ourselves, emotional and spiritual healing can happen, but where time heals certain memories, other memories can keep us stuck.
