I walk down the hallway at work and people just look at me... they don't say anything just look at me with sadness in their eyes or they simply touch my shoulder as they pass. I know what has happened, I know what I have lost... I don't need everyone to remind me all the time. It makes me so angry and then I just want to cry. But then I get angry because I'm crying. I don't think I can do this......
Is our pain diminished with the knowledge that someone elses pain may be greater? Should it be? Why compare our pain with someone elses? If we empathize with anothers pain, does it detract from our own? Some would say it gives perspective, but is this just another way of cataloguing individuals or putting them into a hierarchy? Is our pain not unique to us and us alone?
