0.05 | A Quote | Jim Morrison “The Doors”

“People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality, their feelings most of all.

People talk about how great love is, but that’s bullshit. Love hurts, feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous.

How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel?

Pain is meant to wake us up.

People try to hide their pain, but they’re wrong.

Pain is something to carry, like a radio.

You feel your strength in the experience of pain.

It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters.

Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you.

Your own reality.

If you feel ashamed of them and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.”

-Jim Morrison, Singer of The Doors

Motivations for writing

I wanted to share this quote because it speaks to me as a writer  and as a human being. My friend Sena shared Jim’s words with me and he said also, “Your pain and fear shouldn’t stop you from being an artist. Those emotions are what make you an artist.”  Being human is a very special thing indeed, and I want to express my soul so that I won’t drown in my emotions.-Delise Vann
