What does it take to overcome past trauma? How do you teach yourself to move on from the pain even when no apology ever comes your way? Pain and disappointment are a natural part of life. Everyone deals with their own kind of pain, each one seemingly worse than the last.
And because conflict makes every story intriguing and truly interesting, it makes journaling therapy a valuable addition to life. Emotional writing is what will keep you going. It will make you deal with the pain to hopefully find true inner healing.
Everyone has their own way of dealing with pain. What may seem like a simple coping mechanism could turn out to be the most significant part of moving on. Sometimes, the methods of coping for others may not work for us, but that’s okay.
Each person has to find a way to express themselves and how they feel. The goal is to make sure that your feelings are dealt with accordingly—one of the best ways to deal with pain is through journal writing.
Journaling for healing is a therapeutic technique that helps people find healing and clarity in times of emotional confusion. Whenever it feels like your heart is broken into pieces, it is the power of writing that will save you from doing painful things to yourself and to others.
It will help you deal with loss, cope with pain, and eventually move on to a happier and healthier life. The power of writing can make you overcome any pain and hopefully become a better version of yourself.
Journal writing can affect you in so many ways. How you open yourself to it can determine the kind of effect that it has on you. Instead of focusing on the pain, writing will allow you to look into your strengths, so you can begin writing about it.
If you are wondering what writing does to you, here are some of them in a list:
Whether it is a pain or pleasure, writing lends itself to you, so that you can continue to finally have some closure in your life. While it is normal for people not to deal with pain, it is highly important that they do deal with it in their own way before it decides to eat them up inside.
Spending time with other people as well as keeping yourself busy with something else helps you forget about your pain, but it doesn’t make the pain go away. When a situation or circumstance triggers the pain, all the memories of it will keep coming back to you.
By then, it won’t be easy to deal with it. Maybe, it might be too overwhelming, and that overwhelm can really pull you down. So if it helps, get yourself a piece of paper and write about it. Write about how you feel at the moment. Or you can write about what you think.
When you write about your trauma, the process helps you learn what is really hurting you. What happened was beyond your control. All that you can do now is help yourself become stronger to face the reality that happened.
It is only then that you can truly move on.
Forgiveness is something you give others because you owe it to yourself as well. Living with the hurt all your life is not going to help you in any way. And because forgiving others for what they have done to you is not easy, it takes strength to make it happen.
This is the part where writing becomes a useful tool to help you realize that hate will not help you move on. In some way, hating the person for what he has done to you only shows how much you still care.
If you want to move on, embrace life, and learn to forgive. In the process, you will also learn to forgive yourself. In writing, you will be able to see how letting your anger go and accepting what has happened is a way of helping yourself.
It is no longer about who hurt who or who started what. At this point, all that you should really care about is how you can be better. In the end, you will feel so much freer because you wrote about it. Now, all the pain is on the page and not in your heart.
When you want to understand how you feel or what is bothering you, the best thing to do is to write about it. Writing is a platform that lends itself to you without judgment or prejudice. You can write about your trauma and not worry about other people saying mean things about you.
You can write it in many different ways. How your narrative will go about will depend on how you want it to. When you understand your situation, you are more likely to move on from it. You can decide to take other steps to help you feel and heal better.
Understanding the emotion and what triggers it will help in the healing process. At the end of the day, when you thoroughly understand what is causing your pain, you can get to its root and put an end to it.
You know you deserve closure, and there is no one better who can give you that but yourself.
Writing can help you find healing in ways you never thought possible. There is no need to worry about who you are writing for. The goal is for you to use it as an avenue to express your thoughts and your emotions.
Dealing with trauma can be very difficult. What is worse is that it could lead you to develop various mental health issues. But with writing, you can express how you feel and simply dump all those emotions on the page. You will learn to forgive yourself and forgive others as well.
