The mind is a very powerful tool and can be used to make decisions, think about what is best, and reflect on the bad and how to work it out. The mind can also create and relive memories and soo much more. But it is also important to remember that the mind is in between your two ears, so what you hear can also impact your thinking and how you reason.
No matter what people say or do, your mind is like a sponge and can absorb what took place, the things people said, how it made you feel and those who were around. Talking therapy is very important for those of you who want to talk about what they have been through or currently going through, because the worse thing you can do is keep things in the mind especially the bad and not speak about it.
Doing this will impact your mind and your decisions and how you interact with people day to day, there will be unhealthy triggers within all this and so having the time to talk things through in a safe space with a counsellor who won’t judge you, but support you, will help you make sense and understand what is troubling you as well as bringing closure to childhood hurts and pains you didn’t address.
I have noticed with adults and young adults I have counselled that they in one way or another had hurts and pains they could not figure out where in their adulthood it came from. Until we went back in time to their childhood and they were able to feel and talk through what was coming up for them in that moment. There will be complicated, uncomfortable feelings which will cause unhealthy living patterns but until you are able to address the root it will be hard to move on from it and heal.
The mind keeps as memories things such as-
- Traumatic events
- Relationship/ friendship breakups
- Any illnesses
- Low confidence
- Pain and more
