“Try to limit your pain, and you will also limit your joy and capacity to love.”
- Emily Gough
Pain is inevitable. Joy and love are not necessarily, because they require you to open yourself up enough to truly feel.
In some ways, you are the one that determines how deeply you can feel.
But most of us walk around in a state of avoidance, or trying to shut down certain parts of ourselves, prevents ourselves from feelings and experiencing certain emotions because it’s uncomfortable. We don’t know how to self-soothe or how to manage the emotions and it scares the shit out of us.
Particularly when it comes to love, because when we open ourselves up to love, we open ourselves up to the very likely possibility of pain and hurt at the same time.
