Spinning Lady Antebellum's Need You Now.
Ok I know the title sounds emo but its a phrase taken from the song.
Then again, back to the topic. Would you rather hurt than feel nothing at all?
Blogging this because I really felt for a few close friends. Wished I could do something but superpowers are beyond me. Nor am I capable of magnificent feats. I can only provide a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, a comforting presence and the sharing of joy.
Sometimes, I whole-heartedly wished that I am blessed with the Gift of Healing.
Maybe in a way, it's better to have felt nothing. Then we don't have to go through the suffering of enduring all those pain. No pain means we go through life in a monotonous manner, no 'suddenly's...no unexpected slamming of invisible forces onto our chests leaving us feeling vulnerable, breathless and curling up in excruciating pain...no emptiness within...
But, we do feel pain. Most of the time. That invisible force slamming into us. That dark matter draining us of all feelings and leaving us feeling devoid and empty inside. That huge piece of dark cloud robbing us of our sunlight and all that is cheery. That shower of thorns raining into our hearts leaving deep scratches of painful bleeding scars.
They say time heals. With pain, we learn to grow. We learn how to appreciate. We learn to let go. Live and let live. We learn to forgive.
And perhaps, we learn to love again.
Nothing is ever permanent. We'll get by. And we'll emerge stronger. Better. Just like the formation of diamonds through intense heat and pressure.
A BIG HUG goes out to my close friends who are reading this and are feeling this. My heart is with u all. *HUGZ*
