However... this pain that they feel isn't exactly stomping on your foot is it? Honestly, I have no clue as to how protect everyone from pain. I can't imagine how it must feel to spend 30, 40 years dealing with this crap when I'm barely even 18, and have only been dealing with all this junk for maybe a year and a half/two years.
I think that's what makes this place so great. That there are folks like me who are new and excited and willing and ready and want to go out and fight that fight, and show the world who we are and run the race and such. And then theirs the folks that have run the race, who have been through shit and barely gotten out alive, folks who don't want to go through that again. See, when I get hurt, they catch me. When I go to far, they stop me, or at least warn me that I'm about to run into a wall (and its only after the bruise has appeared on my forehead that I'll listen, but that's a different story). When I'm too arrogant, they let me know. And for those folks who have no fight left in them, I'm here to fight for them, or with them, or to support them. This is a COMMUNITY, one in which we care for and protect each other. That's the beauty of it.
People get hurt, they remember pain. That is something I see no solution for. But this is a community, in which we care for each other, in which we love each other, and yes, sometimes argue with each other. I can't say that I have a solution to the pain. All I can say is we aren't alone, unique... yes, but alone... never.
