So many us live a life stuck in the past with our emotional baggage weighing us down. We can’t get over a past failure or hurt — in a relationship, at work, with a close friend — and we feel that failure or hurt every day of our lives.
We also don’t realize that this baggage we carry may have been something learned in childhood or as a young adult. Some dysfunctional pattern that is keeping us stuck and unhappy.
Too often, we may not realize that this baggage can contribute to a mental health issue, like depression or anxiety, or even anger that seems to have no rational basis. These past hurts continue to haunt and negatively affect our life, day in and day out.
How does one recover from these past hurts? How do you find a way to put the emotional baggage to rest, and be able to work toward a life full of success?
That’s where I’m hoping this blog may be of help to you. I’m pleased to introduce Dysfunction Interrupted with Audrey Sherman, Ph.D. Dr. Sherman is a psychologist and author of the book, Dysfunction Interrupted: How to Quickly Overcome Depression, Anxiety and Anger Starting Now. You can learn more about her here.
Please give Dr. Sherman a warm Psych Central welcome!
