Recognizing that something is not right with your emotions is not a signal to hide, stuff or avoid what is happening internally. Much like a fever signals illness in the body, emotional distress can signal a problem in the mind, thinking patterns or beliefs. 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.
