I can’t explain, you would not understand
This is not how I am
I have become comfortably numb
Your defenses are up and you can’t stomach the idea of opening up again, not even to yourself. Can’t blame you, it happens, why bother? But becoming numb to all emotion is tragic in itself.
It is more comfortable to turn off all the feelings, to disconnect from your emotional fountain because the feelings you don’t have don’t haunt you. But they do…we both know they do.
The emotions you have had, feelings of love, affection – that intimate link you felt with the person, place or thing all have been betrayed. The burn is very real, the knife twisting in your chest hurts more that any punch you’ve taken to the face. It is a runaway train the has hit you head on and isn’t going to stop at a station any time soon.
The pain passes, the scar will always be there as a reminder of the lesson you had to learn. Pain builds character, character develops strength, strength gives you the ability to dare to try again.
Getting hurt isn’t the worst thing that could happen, the worst thing that could happen is getting stuck in the pain.
Be careful but not stuck. Self love is about getting out of your comfort zone, it is challenging yourself to want more for yourself because you didn’t come into this world to hurt. You came to find your niche and then share your gift to the world. Don’t take away years from your life, put life into your years. Live, dare to feel, and allow it all. Big hug!
