  • Emotional trauma is never ending; always finds its way back to you.
  • Dealing with it and facing reality is the way to heal yourself.
  • Accepting, forgiving and letting go are the first steps to healing emotional trauma.
  • Surround yourself with people who love for you are.

Emotional pain has a way around people; it always comes unannounced which we have no control over. But dealing with the emotional trauma is something we do have control over. Just like a bruise or a scar the emotional trauma also goes away but you can’t escape it as it’s a part of your life whether you like it or not. Augustus wasn’t wrong in saying that pain demands to be felt in the famous John Green novel “The fault in our stars”. Healing emotional trauma the right way is when you face it.

  1. Acceptance

The first step to healing emotional trauma is accepting it. If you keep something locked away it eventually goes bad and smells, just like that accepting the existence of the pain is necessary to get rid of it. Don’t throw fits and instead embrace the situation because everything does happen for a reason no matter how bad. The important thing to remember is to keep the faith.

  1. Healing emotional trauma involves Forgiveness

Grudges can sometimes destroy your inner peace more than you could imagine it to be. When you hold on to a something for too long your arms start to pain and eventually give up on you. Similarly, holding on to grudges hurts you more than the person you’re holding it against. The smart choice for healing emotional trauma would be to let the baggage go unless it’s Gucci.

  1. Don’t think and ruin it for yourself

Overthinking a situation ruins your inner peace and also makes you intensify the graveness of the pain. What’s done is done, don’t ruminate on it for long. The best option would be to chuck it and move on with your life.

Dealing with emotional pain can be nerve wrecking and facing reality alone can be scary. In times like those, you need people who will understand you and accept for who you are. Toxic people who put you down or fail to understand you as a person are not the right way to heal your emotional trauma.

Rising Awareness Among Indians Towards Mental Health

While mental health has often remained a widely ignored topic and a taboo in the Indian society, a new report shows over 80 per cent rise in the number of people seeking help for mental health issues, especially in tier-2 cities.

According to domestic digital healthcare platform Practo’s annual healthcare map, there has been 82 per cent increase in the appointments with psychologists, psychiatrists and psychotherapists in tier-2 cities — Indore, Kanpur, Nagpur, Jaipur, Vishakapatnam, Bhopal, Chandigarh, Lucknow, Coimbatore, Ahmedabad and Patna.

People in these cities sought help mostly for depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), marriage counselling, stress, de-addiction and anger management among others.

“This indicates that unhealthy lifestyle habits, long working hours and work-life imbalance are taking a toll on people and their mental health,” the Practo report said.

“It is a common belief that mental issues are mainly arising in metro cities owing to the stressful lifestyles. However, the non-metro cities are also in immediate need for access to mental healthcare,” Aparna Mahesh, psychotherapist at Practo, told IANS.

“The sharp increase in the number of physical appointments with psychologists, psychiatrists and psychotherapists in these towns and cities clearly indicates that Indians beyond metros are seeking timely help to address their concerns rather than ignoring or self-medicating,” Mahesh added.

In tier-1 cities — Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Pune, Chennai, Kolkata and Hyderabad — a 24 per cent increase was seen in the appointments with psychologists, psychiatrists and psychotherapists.

A World Health Organisation (WHO) report states that 7.5 per cent of the Indian population suffers from some form of mental concern or disorder.

Further, it was found that Indians visited their doctors 3.2 times a year in 2018, up from 2.7 times in 2017. Gynaecology, dermatology and paediatrics emerged as top three specialties where most visits occurred.
