We talk a lot about holding each other’s pain but when the time comes, some of us do not uphold this promise. And I finally come to an understanding – not everyone is willing to talk about difficult emotions. We would immediately erect barriers to protect our fragile hearts from having more negativity entering this sacred zone. Not all of us can tolerate sitting with uncertainty of not knowing with another person whilst he griefs. It is only those who truly feel the depth of pain of another person are able to carry this additional burden. It is those who understand how a heavy heart feels and the agony of pain throbbing through the veins can truly identify what sorrow is. Oh how rare are these people!
