The art of survival

There are places I can’t go to, films & shows I can’t re-watch, songs I can’t listen to, things I can’t do, old habits I can’t slip back into, strangers who look or sound like you whom I can’t talk to, food I can’t eat, emotions I can’t let myself feel, scents I turn away from, memories I suppress and thoughts I can’t think, because they remind me too much of the past –

And the pain that comes along with going through all that, just isn’t worth it.

  1. How would we know pleasure if we didn’t have pain? It is those things that we refuse to face that keep the strongest hold on us.
