The best way I can describe it is like a hurt, or torment or even like suffering. It can be physical, but what I am describing is internal. Mentally & emotionally, Like I said it can be physically but that’s not what I am aiming for.
This in which I speak of is pain, but not one that can always been seen or expressed easily. Yet one that is internal that many people having hiding inside them. Living with it & the side effects daily.
Physical pain is different, than what I am speaking about. Physical pain can be enjoyed, such as tattoos and piercings. Physical pain can easily be healed with medicine. Physical pain is easily seen or expressed. (like a stomach)
Pain is a very strong feeling. There is no denying this feeling when you have it. There are different forms of pain, caused by different things, resulting in different levels of pain with different feelings of pain.
Pain can be caused by many different things, from a death of a child or unborn baby to loosing the love of your life to another person’s harmful words to abuse.
This pain can result in many different things. Some people are very good at expressing them self in a healthy way. A lot of times people hide and hold it in until it eats away at them. There are times it dose not eat away at them depending on what its from, there are times they hold it all in until they cant hold in anymore and then they blow up. Sometimes we as people create physical pain to cover up the mental and emotion pain. We feel as though if we create this physical pain it will hurt more and our focus will be directed to it instead of the other pain we internally feel. Truth is mental pain dose more damage and hurt then physical pain, as much as we don’t realize it.
Pain is inevitable. Somewhere somehow some way, someone is going to hurt you. The famous quote “Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.” Has been said by many people, but holds true to its meaning. Pain will always come, its how we deal with it and what we make it out to be.
More and more these days it seems like people are always trying to prevent pain. Pain cant be prevented. Its going to come. Its kind of like death, you can always wear your seat belt in life and be very precautious but when the day comes and its time for you to go. You’re going to die. I compare this to pain because society today acts as though if pain is an option. More and more people guard there heart and don’t let anyone get close to them. Truth is, its not an option, as a human you’re going to get hurt one way or another in this world.
Its not so much that we are guarding are hearts. Its that we think we can run from our pain… but we cant, and when we try to run from our pain it only makes matters that much worse. It is possible to temporary distract our self from our pain, but it never fully leaves and is there until we move on. Sometimes some kinds of pain you can never get over, it will always be there. Depending on what caused it.
People act like running from your pain is the newest trend in society, between drinking, and partying and sleeping around to doing what makes you feel better about yourself. Since when has running from you pain became so easy. In the end you’re only going to be more hurt then you originally were.
Its only human nature to not want to feel this way. Pain is the number one leading feeling to depression. And for those who do not know to how to properly handle their depression, pain is one of the biggest leads to suicide. No one enjoys pain or being miserable to the point they feel they cannot take it any more and there is no outlet out.
Bottom line the point is, don’t run from your pain. Deal with it as it comes, find healthy ways to express yourself. Trusting friends sometimes can be very helpful. Even when it feels like it only gets worse, know that It will get better eventually. Sometimes it will get worse before it gets better. Pain can be the best teacher, even when your only learning about yourself.
Thats what life is all about after all. Learning to dance in the rain, Learning to laugh threw the pain. Learning to love when your hurt. Making the bad times the best times.
