It also might simply be that I am a passionate person who has always felt in tune with his heart. One thing I’ve learned about being passionate is that passion brings both pleasure and pain. And pain comes at you in a lot of ways. Some catch you off guard. With some people, it’s the pain that comes after a loved one passes. For others pain comes when a close family member or friend disappoints, and for others pain comes from feeling passionate about living when all that surrounds you is despair. Some of my pain has come from the revelation that someone I loved and cherished was cheating on me and deciding that I just wasn’t enough for him. That pain was especially unbearable. But like I say, pain can come at you hard when you least expect it.
