When we feel pain, we can see ourselves getting lost in it.
Not being able to get out of it. Despite being aware that it is not the right feeling, we are unable to nudge it away.
So it consumes us. Makes us feel hollow. And takes away our attention from what’s important.
Pain does not come with degree. It just is.
But if it comes for a shorter duration, is it even pain? Or simply a chance to be more self-aware?
