Everyone's pain is different.
I don't like when people compare.
I don't like when people marginalize their feelings because they think they're not allowed to have them.
Someone will always have a tougher go than you.
Does that mean you're not allowed to feel hurt?
To be sad?
And then I start to realize that this is exactly how I treat myself.
I myself am not allowed to feel pain. I am not allowed to be sad, to be hurt.
I have to function because there are so many people feeling worse or having it worse than me.
Everything I know, it doesn't apply to me.
