Is it possible to know how something one has never experienced feels? Is it okay to say moving on is not a difficult task? Is it okay to still be scared shitless of a specific pain?
For instance, putting oneself in the shoes of a person who has just been slapped. Can you describe the feeling when you have never been slapped in your lifetime before?
I am not looking at these from the perspective of writers, because writers have a way with words.
I’m looking at these from the perspective of someone who has been a victim of a specific pain. And another who has never been a victim of that specific pain.
How does one deal with psychological pain that is eating one up? Your comments and thoughts are appreciated. Thank you 😄.
P.S: This post was inspired by a conversation with a loved one about the fear of a certain event I experienced, that has refused to leave my mind and he dismissed it saying it happens all the time, not new. I didn’t know how to express that fear he just readily dismissed as nothing so I just told him, I pray you never experience this kind of pain.
