“‘Cause I rather hurt than feel nothing at all.”
Pain is one thing that makes us human. It teaches us how to be emphatic towards others. When we feel pain, we tend to appreciate love and happiness even more. Pain also teaches us to be stronger, mentally and emotionally.
The challenge of being able to think rationally when feeling pain is real, and innate in every human. This is where the “moment of being stuck between life and death” occurs. Pain can actually kill, hence one should really make a choice; to learn and live, or to die drowning.
