Much like a fever signals illness in the body, emotional distress can signal a problem in the mind, and the relationship ones physical body has with the brain. Rather than avoiding the problem or suffering in quiet desperation, seek help. Counseling alone may not solve the entire problem, but it can significantly reduce the impact of negative or unwanted emotions and give you tools to manage emotions and navigate situations that disrupt your life.
