Have you ever felt like something was off, but you couldn’t quite put your finger on it? Are there times when you just don’t feel like yourself? Do people tell you that you need to “snap out of it,” but it’s not that simple?
Well, my friend, welcome to the club. The truth is that many of us struggle with understanding ourselves from time to time. It’s okay though – we’re all a little weird and complicated in our own way.
In this article, we’re going to explore some of the reasons why we might feel lost or disconnected from ourselves at times. We’ll also talk about ways that we can start getting back in touch with who we really are.
So hang on tight and get ready for a wild ride through the maze of human emotions!
The Human Experience: A Roller Coaster Ride
Life is full of ups and downs, twists and turns. One minute everything seems clear as day; the next minute, confusion sets in.
But hey, isn’t that what makes life interesting?
As humans, we have a wide range of feelings and experiences. Sometimes these experiences are positive – love, excitement, joy – while other times they can be negative – anger, sadness or fear.
Our emotions help shape us into who we are as individuals by guiding our decisions and reactions to situations around us (and let’s be honest here folks), sometimes overreaction.
Here are some examples:
- You receive an unsatisfactory grade even after hours spent studying.
- Your boss ignores your talents repeatedly at work
- Your partner doesn’t listen/communicate effectively during conflicts
These events would most likely affect anyone’s emotional well-being negatively:
But Why So Emotional Though?
Emotions aren’t always related directly related specific occurrences though…
It could possibly come from dealing with too much stress, anxiety or mental exhaustion over time.
This can cause disconnections and misunderstandings as to where specific emotions are coming from.
Here is a list of more potential reasons why emotions can be all over the place:
|Reasons Why Humans Can Be Emotional|
|Mental illness such as depression, bipolar disorder or OCD|
|Sleep disorders such as insomnia and night terrors|
|Genetics and hereditary factors affecting mood|
|Chemical imbalances within the mind eg hormonal changes for those who menstruate/are pregnant /have menopause|
|Misinterpretation of external situations|
That’s not even it yet!
There are many other factors that can affect our moods including environmental influences like weather or diet; exposure to toxic relationships/cultures/work Environments could lead to emotional unwellness in ways we may not initially understand.
So How Do We Get Back In Touch With Ourselves?
Feeling disconnected from ourselves doesn’t have to be a permanent state of being. Here are some things you could try out below:
Acknowledge Your Emotions: It’s Not A Bad Thing
It’s ok not feel okay/these feelings don’t make one weak.
By acknowledging your emotional state, acceptance sets in quicker – This makes room for healing & growth by providing clarity on how they need ,could be redirected/handled moving forward
Examples include manifesting such sadness through physical outlets like crying (where applicable), self-care activities spa treatments/self-reflection meditative re-connection with oneself etc
Start Journaling – The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword!
We’ve heard it before but really have you tried? 😁 Keep track of feelings at different times throughout the day.
After interactions with individuals/jobs/projects/mental-thought processes etc; reflect upon them objectively jotting down any information on what caused these emotions/reactions for better understanding.
Speak To Someone-Talk it Out
Can’t seem to get a handle on things? Talk to someone through professional avenues such as psychiatric help or therapy.
It’s okay to admit that you need support with your emotional well-being (as we mentioned earlier) no-one should go at it alone if they don’t have to. This could be all the push one needs toward rejuvenating oneself back in line and reconnecting with their true self.
Accept Help When It Is Offered
Sometimes, our loved ones know us better than we know ourselves. If someone offers help during an emotional time, try not to turn them away right off-hand.
Remember “Laughter Is The Best Medicine”
Fresh Prince has something cooking when the lyrics “Smile even though its hurting” play out in his intro ~maybe will smith’s just saving lives unknowingly~ 😊 Laughter is indeed good medicine!
– Humor helps put things into perspective
– Share Jokes: As simple as that sounds, people sharing jokes amongst each-other creates a light-hearted atmosphere lifting everyone involved’s moods.
– Watch Comedy shows/movies: Amusing content eases break down of mental tiredness/amplifies positivity
Engage With People:
Recreating connections by actively engaging with trusted individuals who understand/care about your mental wellbeing can yield positive results in combating loneliness & disconnection which tend to appear as side effects of being emotionally imbalanced:
Such activities include zoom happy hours amidst Social Distancing Regulations; game night hangouts/etc – reinforce camaraderie without impacting finances too much.
Feeling disconnected from who you are sucks – plain and simple. However, having these moments doesn’t make you any less human because sometimes life takes unexpected turns throwing unpredictable situations/emotions our way…
With recognition comes action blah blah blah
Above all else remember this ‘you are still a boss’!
Takeback The Reins to your Mental Wellbeing/Emotional State, and watch the difference it makes!
So cleanse what no longer serves you emotionally And make way for new beginnings. 😊
