Few things are as mentally challenging as emotional abuse. Emotional abuse is constant exposure to insults, destructive criticisms, berating, and belittling. Personal abuse of words, actions, and ideas can come from virtually anyone: a spouse, coworkers, family members, or even from your own mind.
Emotional abuse degrades self-esteem, creating a negative cycle of self-doubt and depression. Keeping negative feelings locked inside is very damaging both to the mind and body. Emotional darkness locked inside stifles creativity and personal progression. Negative emotions can be stored in muscles, joints, liver, and digestive organs, causing physical symptoms such as pain, decreased mobility, and indigestion.
There are ways to overcome the patterns of emotional abuse. With proper help you can effectively process negative emotions and break the downward spiral of low self-esteem.
First, it’s important to distance yourself from the emotional abuse. After the source has been resolved, use essential oils to start healing from the trauma.
