Today, I’ll be answering a very interesting question someone asked. It’s about leaving a relationship and then ignoring everything, ignoring the pain they put you through. Ignoring everything won’t take the pain away; it just seems like you’re pushing everything away. Logically, it may appear that the pain will go away because you’re ignoring it and pushing the thoughts of abuse away. However, you’re not really ignoring it. Ignoring the pain will not make it disappear; in fact, it leads to prolonged suffering.

Suffering is pain that has been endured for a very long time. Ignoring the pain means the pain is already there. To illustrate, imagine there’s dust under your rug at home. Instead of sweeping it out, you decide to ignore it. Initially, you may see the dust, but as days pass, you forget about it. However, the dust remains under the rug and may even manifest through symptoms like chronic fatigue, physical symptoms, fibromyalgia, or other autoimmune diseases. Ignoring the pain is like keeping the dust longer in your house to the point where you forget about it.

The best solution is to address the pain when you notice it. If it’s emotional pain, seek help to process the overwhelming emotions. If the pain persists and you’ve tried various methods without success, don’t ignore it; seek help. When you’re in pain and find it unbearable, that’s the best time to seek assistance.

Consider it like dealing with a physical ailment. If you have a headache, you might take over-the-counter drugs, but if it persists, you seek help from a doctor. Similarly, with deep emotional pain, if it persists, it’s time to seek help rather than pushing it aside.

Seeking help for your pain is crucial when you’re aware of it or even when you’ve forgotten about it but feel that something is not right in your life. Don’t push away the pain; release it, let it go, and allow fresh air, perspectives, and insights into your life. Cleaning your emotional “house” allows healthy relationships, new decisions, and choices to come in and help you grow.

Ignoring the pain leads to sinking deeper. When you face it and bring it to your awareness, you begin the healing process. Don’t ignore it, face the pain, and you will grow out of it.
