The most dangerous lover is one who greets pain with a smile.- R. M. Drake
Pain is a feeling that everyone has dealt with at some point in their life, and if they have yet to enjoy such pleasantries, then they will. I don’t wish it on anyone, but like some other things, pain is inevitable. Whether it stems from love, losing someone, abuse or whatever else there is, it is inevitable. We feel it literally and metaphorically. It can be physical or emotional. To me, pain is a deciding factor. It’s either do you take it, accept it, and use it to mold you and your future decisions, or do you wallow in it, crumble at it’s feet and use it as an excuse to not try again? I’ve never thought to do the latter.
