What do all humans have in common? That at some point, things and people make us uncomfortable. Plenty of reasons in the world have the ability to make us uncomfortable, we do not quite know how to handle our discomfort.
Why we are not comfortable?
The uncomforting feelings usually have a trigger. They provoke an anxious response in humans. We encounter conflicts that are not actually life-threatening. However, our nervous system does not know that and we react to a variety of stimuli with the flight, fight or freeze response, irrespective of whether it is appropriate or not. A constant reminder of traumatic past, physical problems or mental challenges also makes one uncomfortable. Such feelings can also cause confusion or disassociation and makes you want to purely isolate.
What are the symptoms of discomforting feelings?
- Worrying excessively about many things at once
- Restlessness or irritability
- Feeling fatigued often or getting tired easily
- Difficulty concentrating or blanking out on thoughts and ideas
- Sore or achy muscles
- Difficulty falling or staying asleep
