    Emotional pain is killing me right now.

    What It Takes

    I have always preferred physical pain much more than emotional pain. Not that I'm a big fan of physical pain, It's just all that emotional pain takes away from me. You can almost always heal from physical pain, but for me, emotional pain seems to always be there, on the back...

    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...

    Everything seems so hazy when there's no pain. Not that it brings clarity, but the pain itself is in such vivid colour and detail. It's your link to reality.
