"Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it." -Helen Keller. The human body has an amazing ability to heal itself, but how we care for ourselves influences that process. If you got a tiny sliver in the sole of your foot, but didn't remove it or disinfect the area, it would soon become infected. Without antibiotics, the infection would eventually spread. The pain would affect how you walk, leading to hip or back problems. If left untreated long enough, this tiny sliver could eventually mean serious disability or even death.
Your mind is also capable of healing itself! However, without proper treatment, emotional "slivers" - such as abuse or trauma - can lead to serious life issues, strained relationships, problems at work or school, drug or alcohol abuse, disease, legal problems, and even suicide. But, there's always a ray of hope!
In addition to CBT, one incredibly effective method I utilize is EMDR, which accesses the brain's memory networks to resolve trauma and negative beliefs that have formed over time. It goes straight to those "slivers" and empowers the mind to remove them, enabling the self-healing process, and replacing suffering with peace!
