Separation Hurts


chainbreaking

Death is a part of the cycle of life, but what I don’t understand is why that separation hurts as much as it does considering that we don’t own or possess those people and we didn’t create them, nor did we come into the world with them; but their loss…the separation of their existence from our lives…hurts.  A lot.

Break ups are a part of the cycle of life, but what I don’t understand is why that separation hurts as much as it does considering that we don’t own or possess those people and we didn’t know them all our lives, but just for a fleeting moment did our paths cross; only to walk along side them for a time, but their loss…the separation of their existence from our lives…hurts.  A lot.

Same can be said about losing a job, a pet or a material object that we had for a time.

Truth is…the hurt that comes from separation is pathetic.

  1. The measure of hurt is almost the equivalent of your involvement with them/it. When my mother died I felt an emmense loss. I wasn’t concerned about her so much as I was the loss of her to me. We had a very close relationship. Far from pathetic, this pain is a testament of our love and it is an important part of life. It teaches us to appreciate the people who we care about and are still with us.

  2. Really well said. For most of us it hurts every darn time, but for some it never hurts at all. Believe or not, those people are the most pathetic of all. There is something worse than hurting and that’s not being able to feel at all.

  3. Hurt can come from any type of separation. From loved ones of course, but even from people and things that are no good for us. I just heard the other day someone say that comfort doesn’t necessarily mean feeling good and at ease, it can also mean just being so used to someone or thing being a part of your life that it would be extremely difficult to let them/it go. To grow and thrive though, let go we must.

    Hang in there my friend, things will get better.

  4. I think there are various stages and strengths of Hurt. Some things hurt immediately when they are lost, others hurt for an age afterwards. But there are always those who make the hurt tolerable. They are called friends.
