Living With The Pain

Why is it so difficult to release what gives us pain? Sometimes we don’t do what is best for us for fear of the unknown. Not knowing what will happen is scarier than living with what we are familiar with. It’s difficult to explain to others how a person can live with something that causes such a negative impact to their life, but it’s not for them to understand. Although acknowledging what hurts us is the first step in letting go, many may not be ready for even that initial step. For in identifying what is wrong, we begin to open wounds that have been long ignored. So we keep the door shut tightly for as long as we can and continue to pretend that all is well. It doesn’t matter what you decide to do for there is no right or wrong answer to this difficult situation. Pain has always played a part in our life, but it doesn’t have to be our existence.
Being alone may be the answer to living…
