Numbness is a loss of feeling or sensation in an area of the body. But we also at times feel mentally and emotionally numb.That means that nothing stirs our emotions and we feel nothing at all. This may happen due to extreme shock, fear or depression, or the death of a loved one.

It’s a state where you can’t feel emotions anymore. You feel so hopeless and empty that you stop feeling anything.

Often, in life there comes a point when the whole world and its existence seem so meaningless. You may feel everything is unnecessary and this may fill you deep down with an emptiness that is unexplainable to others.

This feeling might have many underlying reasons like betrayal, disappointment, heartbreak, or a bad experience in life.
