Healing is honing your peace and health altogether, and it is essential that you know the signs before even beginning it. Read ahead to know more!
There are many things that we struggle with and survive. Your healing journey is something you can never turn back around on. When you start healing, you’re a wounded person, but when you come out healed, you turn into someone who you were not before. Some of us repress those uncomfortable emotions, while others jump to processing those emotions directly.
We have listed out seven signs that you are healing mentally!
You allow yourself to feel your emotions
When you allow yourself to acknowledge and embrace your emotions rather than burying them deep inside can be a sign that you’re emotionally healing. When you’re healing emotionally, you start accepting the positive as well as the negative emotions because you begin to realize that both kinds are important to make you whole.
You have better emotional clarity
When you are struggling with emotional challenges, the boundaries become hazy, and you are afraid of meeting rejection, feeling ashamed, and not letting yourself be a priority. However, when you begin healing emotionally, you become confident in setting boundaries, accepting yourself as a priority, and having the emotional clarity to do things and make decisions.
You respond rather than react
Another sign that you’re healing emotionally is that you are not responding rather than reacting. Before your healing, you used to treat everything as a threat and would react without thinking things through. But now, think logically and then respond. You understand that reacting and running away are not the right steps, but emotional regulation and self-analysis are.
You understand the healing process
You accept that healing is not linear; it is uncomfortable and that you will be confronting the ugly emotions that cause you distress. You understand that it’s OK and normal. It is, after all, the path to finding inner peace and accepting yourself. You know that you have had ups and downs, and what you’re feeling today would be different from what you’ll feel tomorrow.
You are ready to leave your comfort zone
Healing emotionally can also shine through your confidence in letting yourself step out of your comfort zone. You accept and are ready to leave your comfort zone. You are not afraid of things that felt scary before. When you see yourself turning a new leaf and doing things you never thought you could do, take it as a sign of emotional healing.
You acknowledge disappointments
Another major sign you’re healing emotionally is that you now acknowledge disappointments and take them in stride. You see life as a balance of successes and failures and accept that bad days will come but they’ll also be temporary.
You allow yourself to seek support
When you’ve been emotionally wounded and hurt, the urge to go away to lick your wounds is huge, but when you’re on the path to emotional healing, you have a changed mentality. You see the value of seeking help and acknowledge that you don’t have to do everything on your own.
