Jim Morrison

People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that's bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they're afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they're wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It's all in how you carry it. That's what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you're letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.

We can't discover new oceans until we have the courage to lose sight of the shore ....

Suffering for love is a suffering you should stand up to, I'm with this. and not having a love experience because you are afraid of being hurt is pure cowardness(?). I think one always have to try and learn, it gets easier and closer to reach what you really want with each more try..

J. Morrison.. huh?

I definately agree. Unfortunately there are manipulators and bully's out there that built up this gap between sharing a feeling or keeping it to ones self. I also know someone (let's just call him George) who, if you tell George what bugs you or makes you unhappy, he will continue to do it even more (I guess *George* gets a kick out of it).<br />
Also it is a shame that boys are taught at such a young age not to cry and be a man. Now a days, girls are being told that too. I think it's causing more issues than we think. Bottling up issues, not getting the right time of rest from work for example. Even fast food workers have a tough job and some people aren't always nice to them. It almost like man kind has build this sheild to prevent us from getting hurt... But no matter what we do, it still hurts because we see it with our eyes and hear them with our ears, which can effect our hearts too. I find the bullying population is very large in schools, and because of the lack of resources, many are leaning to suicide as their only hope, which is not good. Same goes for relationships. I find that love is support (of people around you), and without support from any pain, how can we trust in knowing that love still exists?
