Adulting: Step 166: Maintain perspective when you get injured


Whenever I get hurt, no matter what sort or scale of injury it is, I sort of subconsciously assume that this is how it will be forever, that my toe will always remain stubbed and that now there is nothing to do but stoically accept this new life of pulsating toe pain. Why me, Lord? Why…

"Have you ever been in love? Horrible, isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens up your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life… You give them a piece of you. They didn’t ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like ‘maybe we should just be friends’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love."
