Mental Pain Is Less Dramatic Than Physical Pain

Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain

“Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain, but it is more common and also more hard to bear. The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden: it is easier to say “My tooth is aching” than to say “My heart is broken.”

― C.S. Lewis

  1. My heart isn’t broken. My body is exhausted and it’s taking its tole on my mind. Strangely, my heart is totally fine. It’s moved on even if my body hasn’t followed in it’s footsteps, quite yet. I’m truly letting go of the people from my past. They don’t have a grasp on me like they used to. I’m actually becoming bored with them and this whole scenario, because I’m so eager to move onto good things and better people. People who are worth my time, attention and love. I want to begin living again. That means leaving the past in my past, finally. Including all of those people that’ve lived there for so long. I’m sorry if those people can’t except that as the simple truth, but it is what it is. Goodbye, my loves. ❤️
