How many times I have felt that my pain is so great I can only begin to tell you. I realized abt two years ago that my pain is no different from your and your from his and his from hers. We all share pain, we all share love and happiness. Our pain and our joy does not separate or individualize us.
This is a tough lesson for most people to grasp. Most people see their pain as greater than others. I had to learn that I am no greater and as such no less than others around me. My experiences do not separate me, instead they make me even closer to every unit of life because they validate my existence.
The world is smaller to those who are so self ish that their pain or their joy overwhelms them so. Because then their world is only made up of themselves.
