Every person has their own way of dealing with the emotions they experience throughout the course of life. But, an emotionally drained human being who has been broken too many times and has been through hell in life might have a bit different approach to life.
While some of us are not afraid to get out of their shelter and shout at the world, some find comfort in their own solitude. They prefer to cry it out, let their intense emotions flow through their body and just feel. Regardless of how painful or dark their feelings might be.
Here are 8 things that people don’t realize that you’re doing because you are emotionally exhausted:
1. YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN THINGS THAT ONCE MADE YOU HAPPY
Your emotional scars and the negative energy inside of you have made it difficult for you to function and focus on doing the things that once made your soul flourish. The fire that once kept you going is no longer there. The things that you once enjoyed doing are no longer bring you any satisfaction.
2. YOU ARE EASILY ANNOYED BY PEOPLE’S BEHAVIOURS
Emotional exhaustion is a dangerous condition in which a person feels extremely drained and fatigued due to overexposure to stress from personal life and emotional relationships. This state is also known as burnout. And I believe that it has happened to every one of us.
One of the consequences of this condition is getting easily irritated and annoyed by people’s behaviors.
Dealing with your painful emotional scars and being emotionally drained has made you feel worthless and lose every hope for the future. You feel as though you’ve hit rock bottom. You have no strength to pick yourself up and find your way out.
4. YOUR MIND OVERTHINKS EVERYTHING
On top of that, you cannot find a way to calm your mind. Because your insecurities and fear about your life are louder than the inner voice that is telling you not to give up. You cannot seem to hush your mind because you don’t want to be hurt once again. Your heart wouldn’t stand the pain.
5. YOU CAN’T SLEEP
Your loud overthinking mind messes with your sleeping schedule. There is a hurricane of irrational thoughts, fears and mixed emotions. And the night time is when it hits the hardest.
As a result, you cannot fall asleep and get the rest you need. The only good thing about this is the fact that no matter how dark some of those thoughts are, you are working on yourself.
6. YOU CRY OVER SMALL THINGS
Crying over emotional movies that have touched your heart is a normal reaction. But you are constantly crying over small things. You cannot seem to stop your tears from flowing. That is a sign that you’re experiencing a serious issue that needs to be addressed as soon as possible.
7. YOUR OVERTHINKING MIND MAKES YOU FEEL NUMB
After a long period of overthinking and expressing your emotions through crying, the pain inside of you has slowly faded and turned your soul into one dark pit of emptiness. You no longer feel sad, happy or angry.
You just exist and accept every energy that flows through your body. Because deep down you are aware that no matter how dark it is right now, everything that you experience, even those feelings of numbness are a part of who you are.
8. YOU ARE AWARE THAT YOU ARE THE ONLY PERSON WHO CAN HEAL YOUR WOUNDS
Even though it is truly difficult to explain your pain to other people, you are completely aware of your condition and you know that you are the only one who can truly help you heal emotional wounds.
You may be emotionally exhausted, insecure, sleep-deprived, confused and lost, but you are not afraid to acknowledge those feelings and accept them as they come.
Because at the end of the day, you know that no matter how painful your scars are, you will heal. It will take some time, but you will get there.
