Monday Musing...

For the most part I believe it is a burden feeling everything so deeply. For a long while I prayed to feel less - It is draining. I suppose it is because I focussed on the deep sadness I felt, but never on the great happiness. I am trying to come to terms with the way I feel everything so deeply, as much as the intense sadness is a curse, it really is beautiful to be able to feel such immense happiness, delighting in even the smallest things...

“People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.”    
- Jim Morrison
I hope you have a lovely week friends - embrace your feelings.
