    There was a time I felt nothing.

    .just an empty shell,Ha many times....Pain can be a great motivator to show me what I DONT want.If I feel nothing than nothing changes,nothing becomes.At least feeling pain I can make a choice to start the Healing.

    I think I heard this phrase

    before in a Green Day song once... and I had to pause and think about what that really meant. And why someone would rather feel pain than nothing. And at first I thought how dumb I would rather feel nothing, I don't like pain. But now, I would rather have pain. Something...

    For the past few months,

    I've been feeling so numb inside. I have no clue why, but it feels so wrong. I have everything I have ever needed, why do I still get the feeling that something will go so terribly wrong? But having to adapt to a new environment without the ones you are used to by your side is...

    Really?

    Really? Really? When someone opens your heart, and leaves you to bleed, I'll ask you then.  I feel nothing but pain. Most in the world would like to not feel. But still, I   carry in myself the pain of my environment. Whatever you do, the pain will not go away. I can be happy...

    Ok, I need to correct a mistake from last time.

    Pain is the most terrible thing, but it means you're alive. When you stop feeling, you're dead. Only item that takes up space. That's all I wanted to say.

    Negative emotions are actually good things

    if you think about it, We experience negative emotions in a positive manner mainly when we are kids. So if we were to feel bad or get scolded we would never or at least try not to do what it was that gave us painful emotions. No point being emotionless as it gets us nowhere...

    Can You Recover?

    If you get to the point of feeling nothing, can you recover, or will you forever feel nothing? At least feeling pain you still feel, and are capable of feeling joy and happiness given the right circumstances.

    That's how you know you are still alive.

    As someone who can become and feel empty, i must say it is a very scary place. So even pain is better than emptiness
