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 our emotional development. Pain brought about through trauma isn’t always something we recognise or we may 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 will do us more harm than the trauma itself.
The mind is often distracted, or usually stuck in the past, or on other things. But a struggle in one area of our life will spread into other areas and unless we’re prepared to address our struggles, we will never make the link between our struggles and staying current.
Failure isn’t prejudiced. But how our mind interprets what we remember is responsible for us failing, but we’re still intent on holding on to things. And where time can heal memories, other memories keep us stuck.
