Connecting is the key to healing

Have you ever wondered why people who go through a lot and live by themselves or cut themselves away from others have a harder time recovering from emotional/spiritual damage? It's because there is no connection. When people form deep and meaningful connections with others then overall health tends to improve. HOWEVER, the opposite of this is that too many shallow connections are just as bad. According to some recent research that I've been doing, having deep and meaningful family ties and bonds with friends is great, and having a go-to support group of around 6 people can help you heal faster, feel better and even live a longer life. My recommendation - make a list of all the people you know you can go to no matter what, and if no one comes to mind, then maybe its time to start strengthening those bonds. love you all!!!!

You are right but some might not have anyone to turn to. I find it hard to keep connections living so far away from home but I try to and I try and make friends where I live but I have never tried a support group thanks. I may try that especially since I go through my migraine phase.

I'm glad that you're wanting to try that. My sister frequently suffers from migraines too. It's difficult to make distant connections, but even having a phone call with someone you love or an email is a great way to do it. There are all kinds of supprt groups on Facebook as well that you can connect with. I'm in 3 and started one myself, however it hasn't gotten too much attention lol Just keep trying and you'll see what amazing things can happen.

@TraciDavis Yes, I am part of a migraine group like three of them. I am on a website as well and soon will make my own group too. I want to spread awareness and let people know that they are not alone when it comes to migraines. I have people that don't understand like my husband so I have to be a part of something that keeps me sane. Mine gives me panic attacks and stuff now so I am trying to always be calm.

@TraciDavis You are right on that since our connections or connectedness is where our anchors and roots of moral support lies my friend.

I absolutely agree, and now there is actually medical data to back it up on health benefits.

Yup, I agree. Connection makes you forget the negativity.
