You spend your days on autopilot, you no longer feel either joy or sadness. You just exist, but you don't live.
1. You cry for no reason.
If you are emotionally traumatized, then you tend to cry over the little things, because you constantly feel pain on a subconscious level . You cry while watching movies, reading books and show excessive emotionality if you see something touching.
If you notice that you cry too often, think about your inner state, because this can mean that you are suffering inside.
2. You lose interest for the things in which you previously enjoyed.
Emotional wounds prevent you from focusing on familiar things. You are demotivated and negative emotions play a much more significant role in this behavior.
After realizing that you no longer enjoy the things you previously enjoyed, ask yourself why and don't just sit back. The longer you do nothing about it, the more painful your emotional wounds will be.
3. You are annoyed by the behavior of others.
Having emotional wounds makes you emotionally vulnerable to the behaviors of others. You will be very sensitive to other people's words, tone of voice, questions and jokes. Emotional wounds will cause you to avoid interacting with people, which will eventually make you a social outcast.
Being alone with yourself can be very helpful at times, but remember that others can also help ease your pain.
4. You feel your hopelessness and worthlessness.
Most likely, heartache will make you look down on yourself and feel your own worthlessness. You blame yourself and your foolishness for allowing yourself so much pain. You also feel hopeless and unable to heal.
If you think you've hit rock bottom, reach out to your loved ones. Allow yourself to be cared for and loved by them: Social support can quickly boost your self-esteem and encourage you to be more responsive to current life circumstances.
5. You are constantly replaying unpleasant events from the past in your head.
If you cannot forget a painful event from the past by constantly remembering it, it is very likely that it has already turned into an emotional wound.
Failure to let go of an unpleasant situation suggests that you must become aware and accept it. Try to identify and find the reasons why you were in so much pain and accept the fact that it is okay to suffer because of what happened.
6. Your pain is so intense that it kills all other senses.
Most of the time, your mental wounds hurt so badly that you hardly feel anything else. You live your days on autopilot, oblivious to your surroundings. You no longer feel either joy or sadness. You simply exist, but you do not live.
In fact, this can be a survival defense mechanism. Try to manage your emotions as this can also help you reduce your psychological stress levels.
7. You tend to overthink
Emotional wounds rob you of your self-confidence, which most likely makes you think too much. This is because you don't want to get hurt again.
Hence, you feel the importance of thinking and taking control of your environment. However, instead of relieving your condition, this habit makes emotional wounds even more painful.
8. You have erratic sleep patterns.
The habit of overanalyzing your heartache keeps you awake at night. Your mind is overwhelmed with thoughts, and night is the time when despair, feelings of loneliness and depression tend to be especially acute.
Your sleep patterns change with your inability to fall asleep at night, which you compensate for throughout the day.
9. You feel uncomfortable and confused.
Emotional wounds can lead to feelings of confusion. You will feel like there is nowhere to go and that no one can help you heal these wounds. You will think badly of yourself, and your mind will be in perpetual confusion.
Try to take control of this confusion and unravel the tangle of your thoughts by writing them down in a journal and sorting them out one a day.
10. You recognize the need to be healed.
It is difficult for you to explain this to other people, but you just feel that you are broken inside and you realize that you need healing. You will look for something to distract yourself from your heartache, and over time you will realize that you cannot be healed overnight. Emotional wounds are okay as long as you are aware of them and acknowledge them.
Try to find activities that are relaxing for you, like writing, music, meditation, or sports. In the end, all that matters is that sooner or later you will be healed. You will survive this period and you will be fine.
