Complexity comes when we try to numb ourselves to grief, sorrow and pain, but not without also numbing ourselves to ecstasy, euphoria and joy.

Like it goes The dark does not destroy the light; it defines it. It’s our fear of the dark that casts our joy into the shadows.”

Building up the avoidance of emotions is such a trap and we cannot numb our emotions selectively. We never get to explore our lives with depth and intensity.

And so surrendering to whatever pain may be bleeding in our hearts by allowing ourselves to connect with what we feel we are ironically also blessed with the joyous emotions that motivate us to live, laugh and love. This happens even when our hearts, our minds and our worlds are aching, bleeding, perhaps even exploding into something that may feel like the very atoms of death, destruction and disastrous oblivion.

We should always remember that the curse and the gift of embracing our variety of feelings will eternally go hand in hand.

The wellness of our hearts and the fitness of our bodies depends on never numbing or trying to avoid the many different emotional flavours, we accept and appreciate all the many and subtle nuances of life.
