If you've found that your quality of life has reduced because of anxiety, fear or some kind of mental hurdle that you just can't get over then lets chat.

You might have depression. Contact a therapist or talk to a family member or friend about it. Or us.
well, it depends.. im on medication for bi polar/ anxiety and the chemicals in that stuff tend to do that. but if you arent on meds id say its because we end to think our emotions are bad and we tend. numb ourselves. we get into a habit without knowing.
Because our brain need to reset from time to time, also it can be conected with something serious, but if it is not the best thing is to relax or talk with people that you like :D
Because you convince yourself that it's better to feel nothing do you don't risk the chance of feeling pain
It is good if you can talk to someone about this numbness that you have. Normally it will be triggered by some sort of disappointment or change in your life that was too much. Try getting to know the root cause before you can tackle it.
If you feel numb all the time ...you say to yourself again n again that you don't want feel so...n with that you should diverte your mind in totaly different atmosphere....
feeling numb can be overcome by keeping oneself physically active by working out physical exercise and meditation and proper rest
Because you are never really letting it all out. Scream and try to release this numbness!! Or bunch something soft, try to think about things that make you forget about your numbness
I too feel the same....like am not excited by things nor i feel down..i just feel numb!my friend said maybe, "you are interpreting it wrong,your emotional quotient is increased"!:)
Maybe you have blocked out your feelings just know that I am here for you you can tell me why you are upset?
Sounds like this is a managing emotions issue. It might be because you learnt to cope in that way. This is your mind's automatic response when you feel overwhelmed and there is too much to process. So you feel detached and numb.
