If you have periods of complacency and indifference, whether it’s centered around a specific topic, object or activity, that you should otherwise be interested in, you are experiencing apathy.
Apathy is the lack of interest or concern. It’s a lack of feeling anything. There is no spark or stimulation that leads to being motivated for action. Apathetic people get so passive that they just don’t care enough and don’t care that they don’t care. They have retired from the rough-and-tumble of life.
Apathy is a coping technique to deal with challenges that are too intense or too complicated to bear. It is a way for humans to deal with too much stress.
Often we think of the apathetic teenager–the slacker who give the minimum attention and effort to adult directed activities like schoolwork, household chores, etc. But apathy can be overwhelming at any age. As our population ages, we are seeing apathy in many older adults as they shift from a busy career and family life and try to find new callings and occupations.
Apathy can express the rebellion towards what is going on in your life when the person can’t express it any other way.
Apathy frequently masks underlying emotions. It’s likely some form of utter pessimism about the future and a cowering certainty of never being able to measuring up. Or a matrix of similar feelings. Removing the underlying emotions will remove the apathy!
Emotional Resolution offers a technique to root out the primordial emotions(s) of apathy.
Apathy, like it’s cousin depression, rides along in our life in waves; at certain times we are less apathetic then others. Then something–some trigger–sets us over the edge and into another spiral of apathy. Aroused by the trigger, the subconscious awakens emotions that were trapped in the body during traumatic episodes happening previously in life.
The Emotional Resolution uses the trigger-emotion couplets to highlight the trapped emotion, use the body’s natural capacity to metabolize the emotion and reset the subconscious’s desire to trigger the emotional event.
Without the underlying emotion, apathy will not have a place to fester and will leave.
Each trigger-emotion couplet can be addressed one at a time. It may seem like an endless well of work at the outset. But in most cases, progress is swiftly observed and the desire to rejoin life returns.
But the decision is yours to make….
Are you willing to do the work to get your life back? Will you follow through can kick apathy out of your life?
Just say YES! Your friends and family miss you!
