HELPFUL TIP:

Emotional wounds will steer a character's behavior, corrupt his worldview, and cause negative traits to form. To understand exactly how this occurs, please read our tutorial for the Wound Thesaurus.

NOTE: We realize that sometimes a wound we profile may have personal meaning, stirring up the past for some of our readers. It is not our intent to create emotional turmoil. Please know that we research each wounding topic carefully to treat it with the utmost respect.
NOTES:
Our senses enable us to appropriately interpret and interact with our environment and the people around us. We don’t realize how much we rely upon the senses until we lose one. While many people are able to live happy and fulfilled lives after such a loss, there’s always an adjustment period, the length and severity of which varies case by case. Until the person is able to come to grips with their new reality and move forward, the wound will continue to negatively impact them.
