Behind the meaning of passion: The DONG-A ILBO

Sometimes the best thing is the most dangerous thing. The one you love the most sometimes hurts you the most. The person you love the most is the one you should be afraid of. You are afraid that your loved one will be ruined or that you will be hurt by this person. Therefore, loving someone is a very dangerous and courageous act. It’s about giving someone the right to hurt you.

As I am not a surgeon but a student of liberal arts, I rarely see injuries on the body. But I often see hurt feelings. The calluses on your heart are created by life’s hardships, but the scars on your mind are created by those you love. The scars caused by your family, lover, relatives and friends are usually fatal and cause a lot of bleeding. The scars on your mind are like those on your body. They can destroy you.

Consolation does not work for those who are heartbroken. But it is necessary. I chose this poem as a consolation. Those who don’t cry have been hurt as much as those who cry. No one lives without pain and is pain free. However, the pain is sharp and the consolation is dull. So I hope you hang in there.
