Emotional Scars Of Pain

Have you ever been through hell and back?  I'm sure you have and if you have, then you know what this is all about.  Emotional scars of pain cut deep.  They cut hard.  They have no concern how deep they cut.

Lately, I've experienced some pretty large emotional scars of pain.  I'm writing about it because this is the only way I know to work through the pain that runs deep.  There have been many moments lately that I didn't know if I could make it through this.  I've questioned everything in life severely with no stone left unturned.

Emotional scars of pain are hell.  They hurt.  They make you believe that you're nothing and you are never going to make it.  They take the essence of life from you as if you are gasping for breath.

Emotional scars of pain make me want to scream out in anger and hurt an anguish.  They make me want to see those that have hurt me, hurt in the same way that I do.  I lose all sense of humanity in these moments for the pain is so great.

Emotional scars of pain rob me of my essence and purpose and truth.  They rob me of the desire to go on and care about anyone.  They deplete my compassion for others.  I'm left raw in the face of these pains as if someone keeps taking a knife each day and slicing over the inflicted wound.

Somehow I hold on to the fact that this too shall pass, although it is hard to believe.  Somehow I hold on to the fact that I'm strong enough to make it, although I feel very weak.  Somehow I know that lashing out at those who hurt me will in no way help me is almost impossible for me to comprehend.

I will go on, somehow.  I will make it through this, somehow.  It will pass even if I can't see that in this moment, somehow.

The emotional scars of pain suck.  They are horrible.  Somehow, I will conquer and move forward.  Somehow, I will realize that the people who inflicted this poison upon me are no longer worthy to be in my life.  They add nothing that I need to go forward into my truth.
