Emotional wounds often activate the same pathways in the brain as physical wounds, meaning they cause us just as much real pain as a physical hurt would. Therefore, part of self-care really calls for treatment of all emotional wounds. Many of us fail to treat our emotional wounds, however, because we are afraid to face the pain. Maybe the pain is traumatic, or maybe it is humiliating. We act in denial but this only hurts us more in the end.
