Can Talking Too Much About Your Problems Make Them Worse?

In a previous post we talked about how beneficial talking about your issues can be. Talking it out can give you perspective, help you garner opinions and advice from someone who is not directly involved and peace of mind. Unfortunately, sometimes we get caught up in talking about our situation and never really apply the information gained. We worry more about how it's ruining our lives than actually fixing the problem. We get stuck in the past and never move forward. Sometimes we might even forget what the real problem is because we're so caught up in feeling bad about ourselves in the situation we're in.

In serious cases it's important not to continue reliving the situation. Doing so can cause a lot of mental stress and often put up a block against the world. Dwelling on trauma can do more harm than good. Over-analyzing can also be troublesome.

This is why our suggestion is talking with a professional. Talking with a counselor might be your only hope at treating the substance abuse. It will give you perspective about your issue and can also help with a solution. Especially when it comes to addiction.

If you're worried about over talking about your situation or talking about it in a way that does more harm than good, consider using the following tips to help you discuss your situation in a healthy way.

Don't say too much. Stick to the facts. Don't talk anyone to death about your issue. Learn when it's time to end the conversation and switch to a new topic.

Don't exaggerate. People understand that you're dealing with something dramatic. Keep a calm and collected tone. Don't overwhelm your audience.

Focus on solutions. If you're only always talking about problems and negative effects of the issue, you might never get to a solution. Talk about your problem with others in a solution oriented way.

Talk with people who care. If you choose to talk to the wrong people, they may react in a negative way. Some people are interested in listening to others's drama. While that can be hurtful, move on and find someone who is willing to take the time to listen.

We hope this information helps you with your issue. We know that talking about it can help but often it leads to over analyzing and dwelling in the past. Use the tips above to help you talk about your issue in a healthy way. If you need help from a professional contact us today.
