That is what they are suppose to do.
They are suppose to move you.
You come across all types of wonderful feelings in this life.
Some of them hurt.
They hurt bad.
Anyone who has ever come across a goal or romantic relationship that has failed knows this.
You fall hard.
A good musician separates you from this feeling. So does an artist. So does a poet. So does a great quote.
If you come to terms with this feeling
The only enemy you will ever have to face, is the one inside you.
This is not easy.
It’s really hard.
Any individual who has ever made a wonderful piece of music, art, or anything else worth doing
Has been hurt.
They’ve been hurt hard.
So do what makes you come alive.
It may hurt.
But do it anyways.
