I’ll tell you something about pain though.
It can be eased, definitely put off, and distracted but the only way through it is to heart wrenchingly sit with it. There are nights I clench my chest, right above my heart, and wince in pain because man, it can hurt. Some nights, I believe that’s all we can do, gently put ourselves to bed with our breaking heart and wait for the sun. There’s some beauty in that.
