Hiding Pain

Never underestimate the pain of a person, because in all honesty, everyone is struggling. Some people are just better at hiding it than others.

Sometimes… no, mostly, I am hiding a lot of myself…

Not many people get to see the full me. Actually, almost none of the people I see every day know the pain in my heart. I tend to hide, not always wanting to talk about the difficulties of life, and how hard it sometimes is. I share a lot on here, mostly because this is my little corner of the net, and I never think of who reads it, but only want to get the thoughts out of my head, and onto ‘paper’. Only sometimes, it’s hard to hide, and I want to scream out to the world that it hurts, that I sometimes don’t know where this road is leading me, but don’t scream, because I know I am not the only one struggling, and others have a lot more pain than I do. Just like many don’t understand my pain, I don’t understand the pain of many others. This is why I always try to be kind to everyone… and hope they pay me the same respect.

  1. Everyone’s pain is valid, because everyone is on their own personal journey. But I can understand that it can be hard to take the space to talk and vent. So I am glad that you have this blog to share your innermost thoughts and struggles, and get the validation and support that you need and deserve.

  2. It is always so difficult to understand how others feel and to pick up on what my lie beneath. I get not showing things the same in my other world too as I feel I can be more open here. This is a gorgeous image and it caught my eye as soon as I saw it 🙂

  3. I get why you’re hiding this part of you. I used to hide my depression as I didn’t want to bother anyone nor be seen as weak until one day I got so frustrated and thought: well if people don’t accept me the way I am, even if that means depressed right now, or forever, then what’s the point of having these relationships?
    It helped me a lot, not having to hide it anymore and when I open up to other people the response often is that they open up too and feel safe enough to also show their vulnerabilities. And you can take up as much space as anyone else. Your struggles matter too!
    It’s a beautiful serene picture by the way. Your boob and body are very attractive

  4. You work with karma and it will work for u in return – that is my take on it.
    Gorgeous image – love the stark background – all focus on your breast

  5. I hear you feeling torn by your frustrations and heartache. Health is sharing as much of your pain and joys with someone as is appropriate to the type of relationship you share. Your selfawareness is so rich and your sharing yourself here is such a gift to me. It’s tragic that the ideal world where everyone is totally open and compassionate everywhere doesn’t exist, however relationships such as you form as you share with us enter that brave new world. Keep being your best self.
