“Pain has to be felt”
Phenomenal quote from the romantic tragic new film, The Fault In Our Stars. I hadn’t read the book but I wanted to see this movie. It was very therapeutic for me. Having lost a family member to Cancer only four months ago, I knew it would be hard for me to watch the film. But my mantra for this year is resilience so I went to see it by myself. As soon as I heard the quote- Pain has to be felt, I felt a sense of peace and a healing sensation in my body. I’ve never cried in a movie as much as I did today but the tears were cleansing and made me feel lighter. We all have to die someday, some sooner, some later. The love and connection we feel with our soul families continues even after they are no longer with us. I finally understand the meaning of feeling your pain and not trying to runaway or escape from it. This was an amazing experience!
So tonight’s blessing is for other precious souls to not be afraid of feeling your pain.
