Emotional pain…why does it hurt so much?
Why does emotional pain hurt?
Let us look at a few things that will help you understand where emotional pain comes from and how to deal with it.
If you have been alive for any length of time, then you know that emotional pain can stop you in your tracks. If we knew where this pain comes from then we can take control over it.
If we knew what causes emotional pain we would be well on our way to healing wouldn’t we? It’s not that difficult to learn if we know where to look.
Emotions that are responsible for emotional pain:
Fear is the first emotion that we must look at. Let us read what Hebrews has to say about fear.
Hebrews 2:14 Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15 and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives.
Did you read verse 14? It says that Jesus was subject to the same emotional pain that we do…he had to so that he could help us deal with this and all pain. Do you remember when Jesus went to raise Lazarus up from the dead John 11:35 states that “Jesus wept”.
Let us look at this further and we will find out what makes fear so potent…
Read Hebrews 2”15 again…
“15 and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives.”
Did you read FEAR OF DEATH”? You see death and fear are good buddies and go everywhere together.
If you think about it you will see it. If you are afraid of dogs…why? You fear that they will kill you.
Fear of flying…fear the plane will crash and you will die.
The list goes on and on always with fear as a part of emotional pain.
Emotional pain fears loneliness…and when you are treated badly or are forced to live a life that you did not plan on then fear of rejection comes into the picture.
When I think about the many people that I have worked with over the years I realize that even those who don’t like to be around people still need companionship…the fact is EVERYONE NEEDS PEOPLE EVEN IF THEY WON’T ADMIT IT!
When a person gives their heart and soul to another, they expect it to be a love that lasts forever. But all too often it does not work out that way. Instead it takes a twisted turn and both people get hurt…and to be honest with you, neither party wanted it to happen that way.
All too often it does turn out that way and it can be a debilitating life to the very end if you let it.
God created you unique…and you are different from any other person. God created us a spirit that lives in a body and has a soul.
There are 5 different temperaments and thousands of various “blends” of temperaments. Knowing how God created us with the specific temperament that he did will assist us in helping you get back on your feet so-to-speak.
