I meant to share this awesome piece of information when I reviewed Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst, but I forgot.
“MRI studies show that the same areas of the brain become activated when we experience rejection as when we experience physical pain.”
We’ve all been so sad our chests ached, right?
“In fact our brains respond so similarly to rejection and physical pain that Tylenol reduces the emotional pain rejection elicits.”
How nuts is that? I just thought it was interesting. =]
