I Wish I Could Take Others Pain Away

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,164 People

    I cant help but noticing the slight subtleties

    in a person that inform me of the distress in them. I am drawn to figure this out for them. As in I try and learn why they have this painful step in their walk, I am also trying give them a reprieve from it. I wish I could trade something good from inside me for what ever is bad...

    It bothers me so much

    that I cannot take his pain away. I can love him, and I do. But it isn't enough. I get angry when I think of all the crap his family does to cause him pain and hurt. I hate that I can barely make ends meet right now.....so I can't even help him financially. I feel helpless...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I think this should be the thought going

    through every human beings head. Instead of devoting our lives to making money and buying swimming pools and tigers on gold leashes we should all be helping each other, offering shoulders to cry on, helping the sick, carrying the wounded. Wouldn't we all be in such a different...

    I Sincerly Feel This Stament All The Time.

    I've tried and tried to take others pain away. It can be done and does work. The only problem with this is the pain needs to go somewhere, where does it go when it is taking away from the distressed? In my experience I took on the pain from loved ones to innocent strangers...

    ** Take it all- so that the people I care

    for won't hurt. Nothing is more difficult than seeing a loved one suffer. Or even a stranger. If I could take it all- I would.

    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.

    Do you know the pain of rapture from loved one?

    It comes from the stomach up to the chests, painfully dries the throat.. And ends in cold shivers down the spine. You want no food you feel no body needs, your arms too heavy, hard to lift... A force seems to drag you on the floor, and you wish for the earth to open up to...

    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.
