We’re all in pain, in one way or another. For most, it’s not the constant kind, but it comes and goes, and when it’s there, you still have to go on living as if it’s not.
There’s a kind of pain that paralyzes, weakens the knees, takes the energy out of you. You don’t understand – heck, you don’t know if you’d ever understand – but even with the uncertainty, you still feel it to your bones. You pray to God it doesn’t last long, but maybe you’re supposed to feel the pain in its entirety. Maybe that’s the only way for you to – in time – not feel in pain anymore.
We’re all in pain, in one way or another, so it pays to be kind.
