We’re going to talk about something in this episode that's really dear and near to my heart because I see so many people suffering. Relieving emotional pain is so important for people to feel better so they can stop self harm.
When they're suffering so intensely sometimes they decide to hurt themselves. They do something that brings them to the present moment – some tangible pain because the other pain, that emotional pain that they're feeling is so overwhelming, they need to do something about it to relieve the emotional pain.
They need to take some kind of action to ground them into the present moment into reality because they're so up in their head, overwhelmed by the anxiety, stress and the sadness – the deep desperate sadness that they’re feeling, so they hurt themselves in some physical way.
There's many other things that can take you out of your head, stop self harm, and bring you into the physical. I'm going to share something very simple in this episode that you can do. It’s going to put you in the present moment, ground you, and help you feel so much better.
