People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality

“People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.”

    Yes! I've numbed myself out in order to avoid those painful feelings and that allowed me to survive some terrible circumstances but I'm not truly living when I don't allow myself to feel. Pain has motivated me to make a huge change and, for once, I want to feel everything so that I can live life to the fullest.
