Emotional honesty - don't run away from that pain

12 comments  Add a comment

Hello, my gripe is simply this:  Isn't it funny how we often prevent out ourselves from getting what we really need from life?

We instinctively know what we have always wanted to do in the world based on our memories of childhood hobbies and dreams. But no school syllabus and sadly too few family units advise us that in order to release our full potential and really have complete freedom, volition and emotional honesty, we have to endure so many rites of passage.

How come it is not common knowledge (at least not to me anyway) that to feel we are fulfilling our destiny we may have to shed buckets of tears before we get back to our core personality and not the sad reactionary adults that too many souls grow into?

Natural selection has got a very warped sense of humour Some readers may recognise my sentiments, some won't; but if you have ever gone all through the night till dawn night after night wondering why you feel that when you look around your world you somehow don't feel "at home".  Life seems to be leading you down too many blind alleys because you have an inherent sense of being "lost".

Why doesn't the message get through to us silly sods that cannot accept ourselves for who we truly are?  Natural selection has got a very warped sense of humour in the way it produced the human brain.

Still, not to worry because change takes time and I have personally changed my mind once again.  When I say changed, I mean a sense of revelation about how the cosmos actually works.

Chris King, Don't run away from that pain. The “straights” speak of love curing all ills;  I think they are sadly mistaken.

It is only being CONNECTED that leads to understanding, this involves complete and utter emotional honesty to both oneself and everyone else that matters to you.

Base your decisions on unknown subconscious fears and you end up nowhere one day.

Is it only me, or did the truth not get ratified by the plain English campaign?

In short, if you feel like you are going out of your mind now and again, ITS OK!  You are just finding out who you really are.

So don't bother to try and numb the pain my friend, it is part of your growing up.  Be gentle with your self, you only have one head so don't take this nonsense any longer.

Open up your heart and mind to the rest of the universe and you will get home much quicker.

Oh by the way, DON’T RUN AWAY FROM THAT PAIN!

Why shouldn't we look at the book called "Lost Boy"? It sounds vaguely familiar. What is it about?

Do us a favour and change the record - the only reason you're awake from night til' dawn is because your conscience bothers you - read this rubbish from you once before.

there hasn't been that many comments on this one, I wonder why? perhaps because most people want to live a life of happiness and not want to endure pain. can you really explain why being in alot of emotional pain is good because as far as I can tell it is very bad for you. I am not saying that you should live a life without taking any risks but moderation is the key and taking dangerous risks that will leave you with nothing in the long run can only be a bad thing really.

If you never cross the road for fear of getting knocked down by a car, you will never see what's on the other side of the road and therefore you are missing out. You have to face your fears and take the rough with the smooth, if you have never experienced true sadness, how can you tell when you are truly happy?

Seriously what? Can anyone translate bullsh*t? I have read this over and over and cannot understand the point except that going out of your mind is ok, have you checked that with a local psychiatric proffesional? I'm sure they would disagree!

This is so funny. And I quote "The 'straights' speak of love curing all ills; I think they are sadly mistaken. Buddy, what are you talking about. Are you on drugs or something?

Have your partner just ran off with someone who they was having an affair with for years and everyone new of and you knew nothing, Did she take everything with her and left you with nothing, Time heals but for now If I was you I`d run from the pain.

Personally, I feel that the answer to your problems lay in the fact that you look like Kilroy Silk! De- kilroy yourself, and a whole new world will open for you.

Well thats good news, Next time I feel the urge to stab my husband, I wont holdback, and do it! When the police arrive to take me away I shall tell them that YOU told me its ok to have moments of insanity, as I'm 'just find out who I really am'

Techno, I'm not entirely sure what your message is. Are you saying sh*t happens in life and we should just get over it and move on, or that life has to be painful to be 'real'? If love cannot cure all ills, does being 'connected' have to mean being depressed? (Or am I just being a bit thick and missing the point completely?)
