How to get out of emotional suffering
There are four causes of emotional conscious suffering: fear, frustration, submission and “Not wanting to do” and “Not being able to do” (laziness or impotence). It should be clarified that these four causes of conscious suffering can generate great unconscious pleasure to the person. We suffer all the time, and we are not able to do anything.
We suffer at all times, and even more so when we are adapting to the environment around us. Since the environment is dynamic, suffering is more intense the more dynamic it is. Suffering is less intense in situations that we already have under control (these situations can be exhausting, but it is difficult for them to cause us pain, unless we reach extreme exhaustion). When a routine is changed, various sensations are generated: Anxiety, stress, desire, vehemence, everything will depend on the environment and the sensation of danger, the body will secrete more or less adrenaline, raising the capacity of the organism to react faster.
Education is man’s way of adapting to suffering. No matter how we have been educated, since we are not exempt from encountering situations that push us to our limits, what is really important is that the rational part enables us better or worse to face these changes. Under new conditions or any change that requires a process of biological adaptation, man can respond in an exaggerated way for fear of punishment, not finding a reasonable way out, he ends up acting vehemently.
Types of suffering
Anxiety (a feeling of worry or uneasiness), fear, uncertainty, anger and sadness are common feelings that patients and their families sometimes have when facing cancer. These are normal responses to the many stresses of cancer.
You may have problems with family obligations and loss of control over events in your life. Changes in your appearance or just the shock of finding out you have cancer may lead to feelings of fear or anxiety. Many people feel uncertain about their future and worry about suffering, pain and the unknown. It is normal to regret the changes in your body, and perhaps losing the healthy future you wanted.
Emotional Suffering pdf
This week we leave you in the blog an article about Psychology. Our mind can sometimes play a trick on us if we do not manage correctly certain feelings or certain situations. Well, this is what we are going to talk about this time, about the inadequate management of our feelings, causing us emotional pain.
Throughout our life, we will experience and go through certain phases or periods that can be full of successes, but on the other hand can also be full of failures or disappointments.
Emotional pain can be felt or carried differently from one person to another. Each situation and each person is a different world and each one manages or copes with feelings as he or she can.
So, we can say that when one suffers from physical pain one can always resort to some medicine, but when a person suffers from emotional pain it is very difficult to detect them, because sometimes we are just tired or apathetic. But as we have said before, it is the pain that nobody knows that we have it, but nevertheless we suffer constantly, even to the point of causing great disorders or alterations in our body.
What is suffering
Physical pain can be defined as a localized and subjective sensory perception that can be more or less intense, annoying or unpleasant, that is felt in a part of the body and that is the result of an excitation or stimulation of specialized sensory nerve endings.
Generally, when we think of pain, we think of physical pain, injuries or diseases, and we rarely think of psychological pain or emotional pain, which can be defined as an intense feeling of grief, sadness or pity experienced for emotional or emotional reasons.
Other explanations for the phenomenon of pain began to be sought and one of the theories that emerged was the one developed in 1965 by Ronald Melzack and Patrick Wall, called the Control Gate Theory.
In other words, the perception of pain is not direct, but there is a filter of the message at the level of different structures. This is the control gate, which depends on physical, emotional and cognitive factors.
