When You Enjoy My Pain

When you look at me enjoying my pain, I see your humanity. I see who you really are. Not the person you show the world, but the person you really are. It is not a pretty sight most of the time, but hey my life is far from pretty so I get it. I am fighting to be who I am, but most of you all do not know who you are. You have given into the pain of your experiences and taken it on as who you are. Your pain is not who you are. Your heart and soul are who you are.

I understand people needing to enjoy my pain to justify the pain they feel inside, but just know that pain is not who you are. It is merely a part of the experience of life. You are your heart and soul. Cultivate who you are, don’t cultivate your pain.
