WOUNDS (WHAT DO PHYSICAL WOUNDS AND EMOTIONAL WOUNDS HAVE IN COMMON?)

WOUNDS        (WHAT DO PHYSICAL WOUNDS AND EMOTIONAL WOUNDS HAVE IN COMMON?)

OUR DAILY WISDOM WORD TODAY IS “WOUNDS”.  I AM NOT REFERRING TO A PHYSICAL WOUND, BUT THE SAME STEPS TO HEAL ONE, DO APPLY TO OUR EMOTIONAL WOUNDS.  IF A WOUND IS BLEEDING, AND THE BLEEDING DOESN’T STOP, IT IS QUITE OBVIOUS WE NEED TO TAKE ADDITIONAL STEPS TO GET THAT BLEEDING TO STOP SUCH AS STITCHES AT AN EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT.  IT IS NO DIFFERENT WHEN WE HAVE PSYCHOLOGICAL WOUNDS.  IF THEY ARE NOT TREATED FIRST BY ACKNOWLEDGING THEM, THEN TAKING STEPS TO HEAL THEM THEY WILL TAINT OUR PERCEPTION OF OTHERS, LEVEL OF TRUST, AND ABILITY TO HAVE SUCCESSFUL RELATIONSHIPS OF ANY KIND. 

LET ME WALK THIS THROUGH.  FOR EXAMPLE, I HAVE BEEN SEXUALLY ABUSED AS A CHILD.  I NEVER TELL ANYONE MY SECRET BECAUSE OF SHAME AND HUMILIATION.  I ACTUALLY PUSH IT OUT OF MY MIND EVERY TIME IT SURFACES IN MY MIND.  I CAN’T BRING MYSELF TO THINK ABOUT IT, MUST LESS GET HELP TO HEAL THIS WOUND.  IT LITERALLY BEGINS TO BLEED INTO OTHER AREAS OF MY LIFE.  I AM NOW IN MY FIRST SERIOUS RELATIONSHIP.  HOWEVER, SOME PART OF ME “HOLDS BACK”, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO SEXUAL INTIMACY. 

I HAD HELD INSIDE WHAT HAPPENED  TO ME AND BURIED IT, AND YEARS LATER, BECAUSE I DIDN’T TAKE THE NECESSARY STEPS TO HEAL THE WOUNDS THAT REMAINED, THEY WERE STILL RAW AND OPEN. 

WHAT STEPS SHOULD I HAVE TAKEN?  THE FIRST STEP WOULD HAVE BEEN TO ACKNOWLEDGE WHAT HAPPENED TO ME ALTHOUGH I DIDN’T FULLY UNDERSTAND WHAT HAD HAPPENED AT THE TIME. THE NEXT STEP WOULD HAVE BEEN TO TELL A PARENT OR ADULT I TRUSTED.  THE NEXT STEP WOULD HAVE BEEN TO TALK ABOUT IT WITH A TRUSTED ADULT AND THEN GET TO A PROFESSIONAL EQUIPPED TO GIVE ME THE PROPER HELP I NEEDED.  WOUNDS THAT ARE DEEP AND EMOTIONAL END UP BEING “REPRESSED MEMORIES” OFTEN WHEN NOT ADDRESSED ESPECIALLY AS A CHILD. DO YOU SEE THE SIMILARITY BETWEEN PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL WOUNDS WE GET?  WE CAN’T LEAVE EMOTIONAL WOUNDS TO FESTER IN OUR MINDS EVEN WHEN WE PUSH THEM BACK TO OUR SUBCONSCIOUS BECAUSE THEY DON’T EVER JUST “GO AWAY”. 

I FINALLY SAW A THERAPIST AS AN ADULT FOR SOMETHING THAT HAD HAPPENED TO ME AS A CHILD, IT WAS MORE DIFFICULT TO DRAG THE MEMORIES UP.  MANY DETAILS OF THIS SEXUAL ABUSE CAME OUT I HAD BLOCKED OUT OR FORGOTTEN OVER THE YEARS.  I LEARNED BECAUSE I HAD TOLD NO ONE AND THE EMOTIONAL WOUND CONTINUED TO FESTER, I WAS EMOTIONALLY UNAVAILABLE FOR ANY RELATIONSHIP.  THE SEXUAL ABUSE WAS DIRECTLY RELATED TO ME “HOLDING BACK” EMOTIONALLY.  IF YOU KEEP A SECRET TO YOURSELF, BE PREPARED TO DEAL WITH WHATEVER IT IS AT YOUR OWN CONSEQUENCES.  THE SECRETS WE KEEP ARE EVENTUALLY THE DETRIMENTS WE EXPERIENCE OFTEN WITHOUT CORRELATING THE TWO.  THAT IS WHY EMOTIONAL WOUNDS AS DEEP AS THE EXAMPLE I GAVE, NEED TO BE DEALT WITH BEST WITH A PROFESSIONAL PSYCHOLOGIST OR THERAPIST. 

IN TIME, WE DO HEAL.  WE RECOGNIZE DANGEROUS PATTERNS BEFORE THEY AFFECT OUR RELATIONSHIPS.  WE THEN FIND STRENGTH WITHIN BECAUSE WE ARE GIVEN TOOLS AND SKILLS TO COPE WITH OUR EMOTIONAL WOUNDS. 

THERE ARE MANY OTHER EXAMPLES I COULD USE, BUT I THINK YOU ALL GET THE GIST OF THIS.  WE MUST NOT STUFF IN OUR EMOTIONAL ABUSES OR PSYCHOLOGICAL OR PHYSICAL ABUSE.  ONCE WE DEAL WITH THESE TRAGEDIES THROUGH WHATEVER STEPS NECESSARY TO LEARN COPING SKILLS, UNHEALTHY PATTERN RECOGNITION, AND WORK TOWARDS HEALING, WE GO FROM “VICTIM TO SURVIVOR”!  IN THE END, WE WIN.  THANKS SO MUCH FOR READING.   SAMANTHA/DAILYWISDOMWORDS.COM. 

 

LIFE CAN BE FULL OF HAPPINESS OR TRAGEDY.  IT IS UP TO US TO MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICES TO HEAL OUR EMOTIONAL WOUNDS.  BENEATH THIS POST, THERE IS A PLACE TO “JOIN THE DISCUSSION”.  THE EXAMPLE I GAVE IS TRUE, BY THE WAY.  IF I CAN SHARE MY STORY, YOU CAN AS WELL.  I AM NO STRONGER, BIGGER, BETTER, OR SMARTER THAN YOU.  I JUST CHOSE TO FIND A SOLUTION.  PLEASE BE AWARE OF OUR “WISE ADVICE” WEBPAGE AS PART OF YOUR OVERALL MEMBERSHIP TO OUR WRITING COMMUNITY OF AUTHORS, POETS, AND OTHER CREATIVES.  NOT ONLY WILL WE HELP YOU BECOME THE WRITER YOU WANT TO BE, BUT WE ALSO DO IT BY OFFERING MANY OPTIONS INCLUDING MENTAL HEALTH ADVOCATES WHO VOLUNTEER WITH 100 % CONFIDENTIALITY.

Founder: Daily Wisdom Words, LLC. I love Poetry and am an Author as well.   There is a lot of meaning in the title of my book, Daily Wisdom Words, Volume l. My previous experience is in Sales and Marketing. Previously, I was in charge of Development through the Marketing and Sales of New Homes' in new home communities for close to 20 years.  I was a licensed Real Estate Broker selling/listing homes in the Colorado market.  While doing this, I hosted a cable network show called, "From Trees to Keys", my portion for Colorado Living Inc.. I enjoyed creating interview questions, working for Developers of New Home Communities, hosting Live on actual construction sites, describing and displaying on television camera various stages of construction as the home was built from start to finish. I interviewed various land developers, New Home Builders, Real Estate Brokers, and other people in the Real Estate Business for one year. Previous Experience: I was licensed through the "Securities and Exchange Commission" as a Principal for Limited Partnerships and sold them as well. I held a Series 22, 63, as well as License, to manage a brokerage firm called a series 39. I enjoyed running a small branch office of an Oil and Gas Company in Colorado for approximately one year. Hobbies: I have always loved Poetry and Writing.  I was declared "Permanently Disabled" due to Breast Cancer and CRPS-(Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome).  I began focusing on my writing. I volunteered for an online poetry community,  "Realistic Poetry" for approximately six months. I decided to start Daily Wisdom Words, LLC after volunteering for an online poetry community and thinking of ways that I would improve this concept and offer something for every KIND of #Writer:  Authors, Bloggers, Poets, Songwriters, Original Quote Creatives, and short story writers. I have two grown children, a son, 33, and a daughter 31,  who lives in Idaho with her husband. They have a son, my first grandchild who will be three years old, soon!  They welcomed their second child, Easton Jay into the world, 5/4//2021. Updates are necessary as my son is now married to my lovely daughter-in-law who is awesome.  She just gave birth to their first son on 5/5/2021, who is so beautiful having the name Logan James Leboeuf. This is her and my son's first child.  Hard to believe their child has a birthday one day ahead of my daughter and son-in-law's second child, Little E.  So exciting!!  I love children!
