Basic Psy: False Beliefs About Our Emotional Pain
    #11232357 - 10/12/09 12:52 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

False Beliefs About Pain

When we were small we couldn't handle the pain alone.
Loving parents should have helped us.
Instead we may have learned ways to numb out the pain.

As adults we can deal with pain.
We have choice and options we didn't have as a child.
We can learn to understand our thoughts and feelings.

And so we carry false beliefs about our emotional pain.
Such as: 'I can't handle it. I'll go crazy. Showing my pain is a weakness.'

To move beyond them you have to test them and prove them false.
Stop blunting the pain with addictions or trying to control.
You can feel your pain and not go crazy.
It is rather a source of information than a weakness.

Open to feeling, learn about and heal your pain.
Learn to release deep pain, don't avoid it.

Focus inside your body, attend to physical sensations.
Embrace painful feelings and keep them company. :drlove:

Love your topics, especially this one, I also learned recently to go into the pain and accept it, if you don't, you block other good feelings too.

Thanks. I'm doing a bit of study on it to see how it works for me. I didn't always have a good childhood and want to see what i've been taking along. Since i'm home with a flu i have some time to work things out. Because i find it so meaningful i want to share it here on the psy forum.

Can you explain a bit more how you see it that blocking pain does at the same time prevent good feelings? Thanks man...

Well for example if you have a broken heart and instead of crying you decide to block the feeling like a real man, the muscles around the heart will stay cramped as if they are litterally holding on to the emotion. As long as these muscles stay cramped you can't feel new emtoions of love flowing through. You need to cry, you need to release the pain in order to be able to feel again. See Wilhelm Reich and the body armor theory.
