A Tribute...

“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.” ~ Jim Morrison
I have come across this quote a few times and it seems to have a new message for me each time I read it.... I like to let it marinate in my deep thoughts...Perspective in life changes as our situations do which can give us a gage on our own personal growth, or the lack of it.. it depends on where on the road of life we are at that moment. I just wanted to share ~ maybe you will let it take you to that deep place inside yourself... feeling everything painful or not is healing in itself and we can all use a little more of that ☺
