some are born to endless night

Pain… like I’ve never felt before. Mind-numbing, heart-ripping, overpowering, intoxicating. The kind of pain you cannot resist. And in fact, I am giving in, totally. They say the only way to get over a painful experience is to brace yourself and live through it, try to make it to the other side. Explore the depths of your anguish, let all the negative feelings wash over you, and keep breathing. Don’t lose yourself in this very dark place.

I wonder, if I ever make it to the other side, will I still be capable of feeling?

“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 wonder, if I ever make it to the other side, will I still be capable of feeling?” – La risposta è sì, chiaramente. Sì a tutte e due… sì, ce la farò ad arrivare dall’altra parte e sì, non sarò completamente anestetizzata. Come dicono i White Stripes, “I must be fine ’cause my heart’s still beating”, giusto, no?

    hey. sounds rough. my experience is that at the end of these ordeals, i feel more, not less. more joy, more hope, more love & more easy relationship to the shadows of these: sadness, burden, even depression. a good book is Thomas Moore, Care of the Soul. there’s a chapter, The Gifts of Depression. it saved my ass and helped me find direction when i was lost. best luck.

    Thanks Matthew!
    Now, in perspective, I can say that you’re right :-)
