Who on earth would want this? I want to feel the pain. I want to cry all I want, likely totally in private. I want to understand the event fully, and that means feeling stuff. I even want it to overwhelm me at times.
Why? This is what makes me who I am. Why are we so determined to get rid of pain? Pain helps us.
What if I felt no pain when I broke my ankle? Likely, I wouldn’t have cared that my foot looked funny, continued to walk on it (because I could, after all, without pain) and then, severed a tendon.
What if I wasn’t traumatized by psych abuse? God bless pain, god bless the fear that it all produced. That was what got me out of the System and saved my life.
I am blessed. How are you blessed?
