Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil & dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain wakes us up. People try to hide their pain, but they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry. Feel your strength in the experience.That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling and feelings are a part of you and your reality. If you feel ashamed of them, hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. Stand up for your right to feel your pain.
"Ideal love is fostered only between two sincere, mature and independent people. Real love is not two people clinging to each other; it can only be fostered between two strong people secure in their individuality." ~Ikeda
