|Otherwise known as philosophical crap. Read if you wish. Then rate. Then tear it to pieces with criticism. It's an expected cycle. Note: Not finished work.|

You could be feeling happiness and life or feelings of desperation and death (not that you FEEL death, exactly). Now you ask: Have I felt love? No. Have I fully experienced life? No. Have I been hurt? Yes. Once you are old enough to emotionally feel, you are officially prey to the dangers of emotional pain. Not all of emotional pain is crippling though. Most you will forget and go on, and some are so insignificant that it really couldn't be called emotional pain. For example, when you are a child, you were hurt when you didn't get what you wanted. In time, you forgot about it, and even if you remembered it, would think it was a silly, childish thing. Compare that to the pain of when you didn't get the love of someone you cared for, and it's not so different...only the intensity of it is multiplied many, many times. You cannot believe how emotional pain can drive us to thinking such crazy things. Or maybe you can. The least of it is a few tears, while there can be thoughts of suicide, and maybe even the act of it. And if your pain is not quite enough for thoughts of suicide, you think of hurting yourself. Now, of course, a person would ask who would be stupid enough to do that? I understand, actually. First of all, it makes you feel better. Hurting yourself certainly has a pain/stress relieving effect. The blood that trickles down your wrist is mesmerizing, and with it trickles away your pain. Sometimes its not enough, and you just have to end your life to escape it. Secondly, no one can be rational under any effects of great pain, whether emotionally or physically. If you were hurt physically, and if it was very, very painful, you would scream, squeal like a stuck pig; you would lash out like a wild animal because the intensity of the pain overwhelms you. When have you ever been rational when under the influence of strong emotions? Unless you have the greatest self-control, there is nothing to stop the average person that was, say, very jealous, vengeful, or angry. You lash out, except you do not scream, or maybe you do. Maybe scream or yell at the object of your anger, abuse it physically, whatever. Only when all emotion is spent will you calm. Tweet
