when something rocks your world, so to speak, you never forget. some parts of you heal properly. nevertheless, various parts of you seem forever unsettled and you forever view the world through those unsettled parts.
consequently, the pain you see in others is inevitably (though often unrelated) your pain on display…an interesting phenomenon.
and if you still feel it, you know you’ll never say those unfortunate words: i understand. coz no one understands yours.
and it’s okay after a while. you can’t expect the world to feel you–that’s unfair. and you know that not everything happens for some explicable reason though God can work it out for good.
pain offers a perspective that never existed before your world got rocked.
