There are people out there, who needs comforting when in pain, emotional and/or physical.
They like to be hugged, talked to and well fed and I don’t know what else, which is totally okay!
And then there is me:
When I am in any kind of pain, I don’t want to be touched. Or talked to. Unless I am ready and say so!
I feel highly uncomfortable when someone wants to hug me when I am sad and down and nothing a person could say or do, would make it better in that very moment. Nothing!
All I want is to be alone, work it out myself, let it all out and get over it.
When I did all the above, than, but only than I might be ready for talks and hugs.
That has nothing to do with the person who wants to help, that is just me.
In the end, we all have to fight our own battles, right?
