How To Heal Your Emotional Wounds: A Monologue From Lee


When we encounter physical wounds, the initial response is to heal them with necessary medications. However, there are wounds that any medicine cannot remedy; the wounds that are ingrained into us by painful experience. These kinds are usually more painful and more difficult to heal. 


In this episode, I discuss how wounds can be a catalyst for incredible growth by citing deeply personal and painful experiences. When we’re wounded, we tend to behave from a place that I call below the line and hurt other people in the process. I share lessons from my ongoing healing in the hopes that they help you process your pain and live a life above the line. 


Tune in to the full episode to learn why wounds are a beautiful gift that contains the wisdom to start your healing.

“One of the ways that we drag ourselves below the line and behave below the line is when we come in from a place of uncontrollable fear, anger, shame. And even the so-called positive emotions, if they're going too far to the extreme, like we can be too happy and not paying attention to the finer the important things in life, for example. So whenever our emotions are going way out of balance, we are going to be operating below the line”.

“You've really got to be courageous, and you've got to start having a conversation with those that you love and with yourself from a really vulnerable place. You're going to have to talk about shame. You're gonna have to talk about how you feel. You're going to ask other people if your thoughts around what they're assuming about you are true or not. There's a lot of really uncomfortable things that you've got to do for you to get above that line”.

“Every single person listening to this right now has a wound, an open wound, and you're just not willing to let it scab over and heal. And I will ask you, what are the payoffs? What are the benefits you are getting by allowing that wound to remain open”?

“Going above the line and healing your wound and stepping out of the normal world means you've got to experience exalted states of joy and celebration but it's also going to be accompanied by uncomfortableness, pain and suffering, and you've got to be willing to get through that”.

What a beautiful gift that emerges from my wounding. And my decision to leave the matrix, leave the normal world—what a beautiful gift. I get to observe everything that's going on around me in a unique way. I get to see people who are treating me in ways I don't want to be treated, but I can see why. And I think, most importantly, I can understand why I behave the way that I behave”.
