Pain

Pain is an exaggerated emotion ...its spiral in nature...the more we try to go away from it...its root...the more it widens.....covering even those aspects of life which had been spared earlier.The more we try to express it, the more it deepens.Cutting us,slashing our hearts ,ripping out our souls. Tears unleash. There is no respite.Sometimes even no tears.Sometimes they dry too soon,unwilling to give warmth and company.And leave us alone,cold.

The only way out seems to restrict it as close to our hearts as possible,as far from the outer world as possible.Narrow its path,hold it ,convert it to circle.Give it a well defined boundary.That will give shape and reality.Don't allow it to escape it wants to,because it won't...it will just spread further in that case.

I read the post over 6 times, trying hard to get insight into what exactly you wanted to say. Much in vain though. The more I read it, the more I disagreed.
Pain, indeed is an exaggerated emotion - you're right at that. But the charateristic of pain being spiral is not really true. Reminds me of "dard baantne se ghat taa hai". The more we express it, the more we relieve ourselves of its burden, the more it coagulates...a simple analogy can be drawn from a cut or a wound - it isnt going to stay fresh always. The blood one day will coagulate, a crust will form and will eventually fall off, and the wound then, would be long forgotten (lets not talk of scars - No Marks lagaa lenge, lol).
I personally feel that pain should be shared, conversed, professed - that way, it wont take a toll on our lives. And we would be able to derive happiness from situations around us.
Smile, come what may.

You look like a compulsive writer. Yeah, it’s a great piece of writing. Especially the way u compare the pain with spiral stuffs looks good. But restricting the pain to your heart level is totally out of my understanding.
You can’t lock it in certain boundaries. It will always persist in your mind and in that situation you can’t enjoy the life. Pain is an emotion, and the display of emotion is necessary. If you want to get rid of it, enjoy the pain feel the love. This is the life.

Very nicely written... but ya as always i have a different opinion on this issue .... it's right that if we try to get away from it it will widen more but the thing is we need not to go away from it on the other hand we need to find it's reason and try to get over it and many times it happens we are not the best judge to judge our pain and it's reasons so it helps if we share it not share exactly but i will say discuss about it with someone we find we can talk with not someone who will make fun of it but someone who can feel it and suggest you the way to get over it .... may seems weird but thats the way i feel about it

Tha analogy that u mentioned...think in terms of it...if we try to keep touching the wound or scrapping it....it will just get worse.Somethings need to be left alone to get over them.Too much attention to ur emotions by the world...esp too much care can sometimes exaggerate them further.

welcome to bolgosphere!
ya im a compusive writer...not in the sense that i write a lot but when there is something in mind ,then the need to write ina lot!
Ok maybe we can't restrict pain,but to express it doesnt really help always..at times...we can starve it of any energy and allow in to die off.
but its true ,its not possible to enjoy life till it goes away.

Your wisdom is very reassuring.It is required to get over it.But atsometimes it feels wrong...as i said,pain is an exaggerated emotion...so we may think we feel more than we actaully do.So when discuss ,we show that.And to talk it over wid someone who feels it,can make them also experience it at times and thats what makes it tough.At times i wonder if not better just to keep it there and starve of any attention,(esp when there are no solutions bcoz its illogical and evn we know dat it shudnt be there) instead of allowing it to spread to anyone else.
