Today’s entry is brought to you by the letter ‘P’. Pain starts with ‘P’ and it’s something I’m unfortunately familiar with. If I had my choice I would choose physical pain over emotional pain. Physical pain heals much faster than emotional pain. The most searing, blinding, agonizing pain I have ever felt was emotional. The emotional pain was so intense I physically felt it. Then the physical pain was gone, but the emotional pain still remained, the emotional pain remains to this day. I hope that it will fade with time, but I know it will always be there.
There are times when I wish there were a physical cause for the pain I feel, because there are ways to numb the physical. I realize that everyone has pain, pain doesn’t discriminate, it is something experienced by everyone and you can’t compare pain. There are people who have chronic physical pain and they may wish their pain was only emotional. For me emotional is worse, but maybe because I’ve never experienced the physical pain of others. All I know is as much as the pain I have experienced hurts; I wouldn’t trade it for another person's pain. I think maybe we are given the pain and hurt that will help us become better people. Besides, you never know what pain someone is hiding.
Until next time,
