| | Re: Counseling/Self Help..can it all mentally drain even more?
I am going through a similar issue and I also am still struggling with it. I can tell you that over-analyzing can definitely create more confusion. It does for me. Many resources available often contradict the other - in the end it's all about what works for you. Put that book down and try another. I see them more as suggestions and guidelines rather than a how-to fix it manual. Also, hammering a subject over and over again does not help anything if you feel you are getting nowhere. That is what causes emotional numbness. For me it helps to just stop. Reflect on what has transpired and give yourself time to think about the issue. Get some more input from different sources. Try again later when emotions are not running so high and you have a more objective view on things. Perhaps a different approach will yield better results. These are some things I picked up from MY resources and have found them helpful.
