Many of us were taught lies like, “pain is weakness leaving the body,” or “what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger.” The truth is that[emotional] pain is a need begging to be met. The longer a person lives in pain, the more likely it is that his or her heart will shut down. See, most of us don’t even know who we are, because we haven’t stopped long enough to say hello to ourselves or ask ourselves, “How can I help you?”
