It might feel like your heart and mind are constantly at war with each other. It’s possible that your imbalance is due to an underlying mental health disorder like depression or anxiety. Or it could just mean that you have a harder time controlling your emotions and need to learn new coping strategies. People who struggle with emotional imbalance often experience symptoms like stomach aches, tense muscles, trouble sleeping, and irritability. While it can be difficult to live with an imbalance, this is not a fixed state.
