Can You Live Without The Struggle?

I like pain. It’s an inexplicable part of my personality. For example, I like the actual pain of getting a tattoo. I find it cathartic. It focuses me and helps my understand that pain is fleeting, temporary and often not as bad as we feel it is.

This affinity for pain extends much further than tiny needles drilling ink into the layers of my skin.
