A prce to pay

Theres a price to pay for being a human being and most of us are deciding which one we prefer: being vulnerable and getting hurt again, potentially feeling more pain, or not feeling very much. And then the depth and wealth of our experience is limited. And i don't blame anyone for shutting down,sometimes its the only way we get through some things. But the reality is that we can't stay shut down and be human beings coz' thats part of the human experience. If you want to experience depth in your life and a rich full experience of life, you have to fell the cost of being hurt and in order to really get what is about, the big picture, you have to feel a lot!..

I believe I have learned from all the mistakes and pain I have gone through in my life, which has in turn made me a better person. I can understand shutting the world out for a while after a particular hardship, but not forever, learn and embrace the pain. It can only make you a stronger human being !!
