The life of every individual touches another. Relationships are the foundation of our lives. We have relationships with our parents, children, spouses, siblings, co-workers, friends and others. When problems arise in relationships, it can truly shake the emotional well-being of a person. When relationships end, or the dynamics change, in cases of divorce, death, or a move, sometimes the inability to move on emotionally can bring a person's life to a halt.
Emotional pain can affect a person's life more than physical pain. Physical pain can be alleviated with medication, and it eventually will pass. Emotional pain and heartbreak can linger far more indefinitely. There is no meter to gauge a person's suffering level, and no two people are the same. Many may try to camouflage the pain with bitterness and anger. Others may find they have an inability to trust, or give and receive affection.
Relationships can cause pain. There are individuals who will try to numb this pain. They may use alcohol or drugs to try and take the sting off their feelings, while others may turn to pornography, self-mutilation, eating disorders, and some withdraw from society. Phobias can develop, as well as chronic depression. Some people may simply no longer be able to get out of bed and function.
