Golden Nugget of Thought: Pain is a Right


I love this quote because I think we've all felt the pressure not to feel what we feel at least once in our lives. I may do or say the wrong things, but I will never apologize for feeling the way I do. Ever. It's the most honest and genuine thing I have to offer the world. No matter how misguided or uncomfortable it might make someone. Numbness is never the answer.

  1. I SO AGREE. In college, I learned that it made some boys uncomfortable when I flirted with them. So I stopped flirting, or showing people that I cared about them because, ugh. Rejection and discomfort.

    I don't give a shit anymore. I feel the way I feel and I will share it. If it's thrown back at me, fine. I'll move along. But I will NOT apologize is someone is uncomfortable about MY feelings. Especially when they're good, kind, TRUE feelings.
