50 Shades of Grey – Day 37


‘Self Inflicted’ – Counting down.

People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.”
― Jim Morrison


Since Morrison died in 1971 . . .  I think we can update his quote  . . . “Pain is something to carry, like a radio.”   . . . to something like “iPod” and instead of carrying that radio so everyone can hear your pain – put the ear buds in and listen to the music that soothes your pain or even makes you sad, it just may not be a great idea to be shouting your pain on the street, because in the 21st Century people might think you need to be medicated. But you get the drift of what Jim is saying.
