    Am I That Insignificant??

    I don't have the creativity nor vocabulary to make my story something worth reading.. All I can do is just tell it like it is and hopefully someone will relate.. My name is Morne Liversage but my friends call me "Bones" not because I do cool stunts and break bones, no.. But...

    Gah

    Emotional pain makes my brain turn into ****. My internal self slowly destroys itself like tar in lungs. alternatively if I physically feel pain it is MUCH easier to express the discomfort. If only I knew how to handle emotional pain

    That Doesn't Mean I Like It, Though

    I just seem to be able to deal with physical pain a lot more easily than emotional stuff. Cuts and scrapes, falls and tumbles, they all hurt, yeah, but I can deal with them. They go away. Scars fade. But, for me at least, emotional pain stays far, far longer. I don't know why...
