Pain & Torture : LUSENET : chaos : One Thread

"The truth that many people never understand, until it is too late, is that the more you try to avoid suffering the more you suffer because smaller and more insignificant things begin to torture you in proportion to your fear of being hurt."

--Thomas Merton

I believe it holds true for me.

Pain is life. The more you overcome, the more you understand how to survive. You become stronger for it. Avoid it, and you wither. I won't be that person.

I have experienced pain t00 many times and pain feels t00 bad for me. I know that you need to experience pain to gain pleasure of any sort... but ahh fuck it. I can't express it.

i believe pain should be dealt with as it comes... and neither sought out nor avoided. although i can't say i've always lived by that standard.
