happy

Sometimes pain reminds too.

There's this saying: Pain teaches, fear reminds, anger protects, hatred blinds. For the most part, I'd agree with this. Except I just realised something about pain.

There are two kinds of pain. There's the pain you get from stress headaches and woman stuff, and broken arms and legs, that you just want to curl up in a ball with the curtains closed and forget about. This is the kind that you take painkillers for.

Then there's the pain you get from enjoyable activities, that reminds you of the fun you've had. There aren't many spots on my body that don't hurt right now, but every little twinge is a reminder of cool times. Thus, I am revelling in the pain.. it makes me smile.

Does this make me weird?
