We always learn something from pain.
How can they do that?
Throwing away what I can
only dream about?
In a cruel world
I stand strong and gentle, though
full of wounds I am.
This pain will make sense someday.
People have scars in all sorts of unexpected places like secret road maps of their personal histories, diagrams of all their old wounds. Most of our old wounds heal leaving nothing behind but a scar. But some of them don’t. Some wounds we carry with us everywhere and though the cut’s long gone, the pain still lingers.
-Meredith Grey, Grey’s Anatomy
I was faced with two choices:
the choice to leave
and never see you again,
or to stay and feel the pain
of you not loving me.
Maybe it’s wrong,
maybe it’s stupid,
I don’t know…
but I stayed.
I broke my heart loving you.
He said goodbye. Her world crumbles.
It’s killing her. He didn’t care.
Ultimately, the worst kinds of pain do not come from your enemies,
but the people you trust and love.
Each person feels pain in his own way, each has his own scars.
Letting go is the easy part. It’s the moving on that’s painful. So sometimes we fight it, trying to keep things the same. Things can’t stay the same though. At some point, you just have to let go, move on. Because no matter how painful it is, it’s the only way we grow.
Stab the body and it heals.
But injure the heart and the wound lasts a lifetime.
Pain doesn’t show up in our lives for no reason.
It’s a sign that something in our lives needs to change.
