    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.

    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...

    Pain is a strange topic to talk about

    as there is so much involved with it. It's crazy to me how we all feel pain, but individually we all feel it differently. We may hurt over the same thing, but we will never know how deep someone is hurting. That is a beautiful thing about the human body. It shows how everyone is...

    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.

    The pain is there simply

    because the relationship mattered to you. You felt an honest, passionate, authentic, deep-down LOVE for your partner. And that is a GREAT thing. That’s a wonderful thing. That means that you CAN feel honest love, that you are capable of believing in someone, cherishing the...

    Everyone deserves the right to be happy.

    But there's always more! More experiences to live through. More lessons to be learned. More people to lose. More pain to be absorbed.

    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 have to be careful with this though,

    as I am an empath and other peoples' emotions are absorbed easily. I can help soothe their pain as best I can without taking it on myself.
