No one can say he or she has never felt pain. Wether it’s been fairly light or thorough or acute is not the question, the thing is it’s been there and we’re all familiar with it.
It’s a pretty abstact feeling that unfolds into a particular type of emotion – not always bad. It also makes us a little a lonely, uncomprehended and perhaps uncomprenhensible, but even if we acknowledge it pretty negatively, it’s actually a great thing: it pays the income of everything precious. Even if we wallow in self-pity and doubt as a result of it for a considerable amount of time, it’s frequently a root to knowledge because there’s no real coming to consciousness without it. It makes you see everything dark and with a slight sense of sick humor, but your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding and no one can really experience neither life nor the world without hurting every now and then.
So yes, pain is indeed necessary and I have absolutely nothing against it… but I must say it sure is swell when it’s not there.
