When I feel pain, I....
What do you do when you feel emotional pain? Cry? Suppress emotions? Mediditate? Write down your feelings? Work out? Scream? Annoy others? Grimace? Physically hurt yourself? Go out for fresh air?

Myself, I first put my emotions at bay until I'm in a place where I can think clearly. Then I meditate, and maybe write or cry. Sometimes, I cann a friend and tell her what bothers me.

I want to hear from others. Maybe there are better ways to react to pain.

To help me cope with emotional pain- I clear my mind, and think objectively. I usually go for a long run (about10-20km), have a shower, sleep, meditate or listen to music. They all help me relax and destress. Once I am relaxed, I usually lie on my bed for ages and thoroughly think. This allows me to confront my problems in a controlled manner. However I do not suppress my emotions. Eventually I may talk to a close friend or family member.

I bottle up all my emotions until they burst out in public over ridiculously small things, or I break down in my room while listening to music. If I'm angry: Hole and Sleater-Kinney. If I'm sad: Modest Mouse or Rio de la Muerte.

When i feel physical pain.. no matter how bad it may look. I just dont register it as "pain" it's really hard to explain I don't cry or yell or anything... buttt when i feel emotional pain I break like a bull jumpin around in an antique shop =\

wraith, i think its only really the first part of his way is bad, the latter part is a perfectly good way to deal with it. suppressing emotion when the circumstances require it is and a reasonable thing to do, but it is best to get rid of the emotion at an appropriate time asap. my way is generally to play nirvana or metallica on my guitar (when angry) when sad go see my gf, and just chat.

I think i assess the problem. I ask why i feel this way, and try and see "is it my fault"- or what i percieve to be the "problems fault".-

and if im in the wrong...then i try to adjust my opinion.

if "they're"(the problem/r whatevea) wrong...than i die trying to fight it..

fear is my most...feared emotional trait.

i try to immediately catch my pain and examine and rationalize it, finding the very specific reasons for it, and once that is done i forget the pain/problem for later.

more often though, as i try to "catch the pain" it jsut slips away and i return to a more objective mindset.
