Emotional pain can intensify physical pain. The body has a powerful way of telling us that there is something it is struggling with. Pain is a great way to get us to look at the part of the body that needs attention. Emotional pain can do the same thing when it comes to dealing with healthy emotional pain. However when you introduce unhealthy emotional pain to physical pain the combination can be destructive and overwhelming. When dealing with physical pain, it is important to educate ourselves of the difference between the two and how they express themselves in our lives. Controlling the unhealthy emotional pain can and will help to make physical pain more manageable.
