Hurt is one of the most powerful feelings ever felt. It might not be the most common but definitely the most memorable. It feels like there’s a raging voice inside you that grows and soars in volume until it becomes more than the body can take. Until you feel like you’re going to rip yourself apart to let the voice out and scream.

It is a visceral scream – a bullet ricocheting inside the skull. You feel too big for your physical body and too small to even matter. This is when you feel hurt – when you do not matter or you invest too much love in someone who disrespects you.

In time, I have realized there is no time to invest energy into negative emotions. I have created an inner system that allows me not to feel so hurt but I cannot feel happiness in its entirety either. I guess hurt requires the sacrifice of joy.
