I Wish I Could Take Others Pain Away

    I wish I could just go up to someone

    that is in emotional pain touch them on the shoulder and tell them everything was okay. At that instant I would absorb all the pain they are feeling and lock it into myself. I would take their pain to the grave.

    Seeing someone cry make some want to know their

    story. I want to rob all the banks in the world to help them. I want to invent the cure for cancer or find world peace. But it's only a wish, a dream that isn't really true. I can't take others pain away when I can't even take away my own. Sometimes we just have to face reality...

    I Can Take the Pain Away From Others.

    Sometimes I can take away pain,but at great cost to me. Sometimes the pain comes into me when the other person gets relief. I am known as a healer....and some say I have "magic hands". People sometimes seek me out because I have helped someone they know in the past. I...

    Confusion Would Be The Understatement Of The Year.

    I generally don't post rants like this. Or I try my best to avoid whining. Whatever. So, I met you one year and one and half months ago. You have been humming in my ear this whole time, about your insurmountable love for me. We both have problems but we help each other deal...

    A few years ago, even being

    as young as I am, I noticed a correlation in my life. I began to in my mind see, that bad things would happen to my family and loved ones while I was experiencing happiness. After I recognised the pattern, it followed me everywhere. From small things to large, I continuously saw...

    I hate seeing people suffer,

    whether if I know them or not. I can never watch someone hurt and not wish that there was something that I could do. The more that I care about someone the more it pains me to see them hurt. I would do almost anything to help anyone that is in pain.

    Feel Bad Because I Can't Always!

    If I could, i would like to see no one have any pain of any sort, metal or physical. I would love to be able to talk to them and make them feel better, but sometimes what we say makes things worse for them. Sometimes just being quiet and letting them know you are there is the...

    If I could, I would take all the pain in your

    life, you don't deserve to feel hurt- no one does. But I don't mind, as long as you are happy. You deserve to be happy after all, if you're feeling hurt.

    So I need some advice.

    ..I found out a few years back that my older brother molested my sister for years before he went off to college and never lived at home again. I secretly hate him for this. My brother has been living out-of-state for years now and I don't talk to him anyway, but he contacted me...

    Hi, I have always had this feeling of wanting

    to help others the best way I can. I always plan that when I get older i will do lots of charities and volunteer at animal shelters and make sure others know that they are loved and important:))). I can't stand to see others cry and wish to take away their pain and suffering.

    I am a highly empathetic person

    and I am more likely to cry about someone else's troubles than my own. It's both a blessing and a curse.

    I think it's bad enough having to live with

    yourself in constant sadness every day, but it is even worse to watch someone go through thr same thing because there is literally no miracle that can completely remove the pain

    I am too inarticulate to ever be capable of

    telling someone just how much they are worth to me. I can say 'I love you', but my face won't shape the words the same way my mouth does. In the same way, I can say 'I'm always here for you', but my voice is too flat and my portrayal of emotion is all too wrong. So I show...

    If Only I Could

    Wounded hearts, scars and pains, I hear about so many on here.  Physical and emotional anguish of people who don't deserve the pain they endure.  I wish I could find a way to make it better for everyone, including my own problems.

    I think this should be the thought going

    Definitely. I truly hate seeing others upset

    about something. It hurts to see them crying or ready to punch someones lights out. I am always here for anyone who would like to talk. It doesn't mind on who you are. I don't judge and never will.

    than somebody else go through pain. It's just so horrible to see something bad happen to them. It makes me think what did they do to deserve such pain. I wish I could everyone's pain away.

    The pain is there simply

    If I could take your pain away I would,

    especially the people I care about. When ever I hear someone's stories where they were scared or got hurt, mentally or physically, I wish that I could suck it all up and take it away from them like it never happened.
