Increase your self-esteem by exploring feelings (1 minute read)
This post “Increase your self-esteem by exploring feelings” continues with how you can increase your self-esteem by getting to know yourself.
Increase your self-esteem by exploring feelings:
Feelings need to be heard or they can turn into physical or psychological symptoms. In fact, many studies indicate that over 75 % of mental health problems and physical illnesses comes from our thought life.
Stress plays a large part of this. Unheard/unprocessed emotions are stressful for the body. One way of hearing your emotions is by writing about them.
Of course, we can never write painful events out of our lives, even if that sometimes would be preferable.
But writing about difficult events can start the healing by helping get emotional closure and lessen their emotional charge, gaining some distance and making the event and associated feelings more graspable.
This can be done among other thing by going through your 5-10 most important life events. Think about each of them. At the same time write about the feelings, associated needs and reactions that emerge. Also include what you would like to happen.
