No you will not. In fact you will never feel this pain again because the pain you feel is unique to this moment in time and space (it may shrink/grow/change/dissipate). As with almost everything in life... it's cyclical (without this pain you won't be able to compare how happy will you be at some point in the future or how happy you we're in the past). It's all good, all feelings are good. They signal you that some changes are necessary.

You will not always feel this pain. Pain will morph and change. Pain can intensify or it can slowly ease away. How you handle your pain will reflect how you are able to feel it.

I can promise you that pain only lasts the moment you have felt it. Besides pain there is love and when you understand that pain will only last such a short time compared to all the beautiful wonders in the world. Then and only then will you be happy. Happiness comes from love and compassion. When your feeling pain rely on those close to you to life your spirit.

I think pain shifts.. I mean it may always be there but it changes and get less, it depends on the situation but I know things that destroyed me in the past now barely upsets me. Control your feelings, don't let your feelings control you

You won't always feel this pain, although it may seem like you will currently. Believe me, it will phase out :) Talking to a listener or a close friend will help speed up the process as well!

Pain is of course temporary. Sometimes it lasts longer than expected; sometimes it's seems as though there will be no end; pain is tricky and tough to endure; just have faith and take it easy; one breath at a time. You can and will surpass this feeling for sure.

No you may not always feel this pain. Pain is supposed to be temporary & can be if dealt with correctly. Find something that makes you happy and maybe the pain will go away.

pain will eventually fade but it never truly goes away. But there are no highs in life without lows. Every high and every low defines you and makes you the person you are meant to be.

Absolutely not, eventually you will begin to grow and soon enough you will rediscover yourself. You have a great life ahead of you!

No, you'll experience happiness and positivity and comfort. Maybe not as soon as you would like but there is a life for you without all the pain and the dreadful thoughts. The realisation will hit you at some point and it will be such a relief but all you can do now is work towards getting there. You have control over what you can do now and how it's going to be so no matter how little the step is you're moving forward, and the setbacks are there to remind you that you're getting back up so keep trying. Later on you'll find a lot of wisdom and kindness that came from this experience but for now it's the small steps that count.

No, nothing in life lasts as it is, everyone has his own pain story, if life was all about pain and suffer then the word happiness wouldn't have existed, no matter how long your pain lasts be sure that you will get rid of it one day, try to change the way you live now, try to be honest to yourself and try to discover it to know where does your pain comes from so you can change something about it.

Yes. But the pain that you are feeling will start to wear down and move to the back of your mind and everyone as that but only some days but everyone has bad days eventually you can go day to day and not think about it but it will still be there stay strong

Pain will pass. What you are feeling now will not always be the same, even if you don't realise it, as people we are always changing and developing. You'll get there.

It's true that time does heal. Pain will come back but as long as you have the tools and support network, you can get through it.

No you wont always feel this pain. All pain is only temporary and everything is impermanent even if it doesnt feel like it now. Things will get easier its just about finding those little steps that help that little bit and to just take it day by day

Will you always feel this pain? It depends. Sometimes we need to let go of the past for us to move on from the pain. Usually you are the only person who will be able to dictate if you will feel this pain forever because it is your life and you make the decision. Make good decisions that make you happy and slowly you will start to see the pain evaporate.

No, you won't. Some days are worse than others, but on the flip side, some days are better. Someday, that better day will become your new normal and then suddenly, you have another good day and that day becomes your normal. Every good day after that that plateaus off is another milestone, another goal achieved.

No, certainly not in the way you are feeling it right now. Whatever has caused the pain you are feeling now is here in this moment in time, and as time passes so will the pain. It may never be gone completely but you will learn to live with it and feel it less and less. You will feel it in different ways, but they will become ways that you can process and cope with. It will get better!

You may be feeling depression. In depression, some of us experiences constant physical effects, a dull hollowness or heaviness feeling. If it's a sharp pain, then a doctor is heavily recommended.

Remember that time is infinite. You may feel like this now but I'm sure it'll pass, bad feelings usually do not prevail over good

No! Nothing is forever. Emotions are something we all have but certain feelings come and go. It will get better!

No, pain is something that only gets better with time, even if it seems never ending. It is hard to feel like something so intensely painful will pass, but it will pass. It may not disappear all together, but it will fade enough that you will be okay and you will be able to manage what you are feeling. You are strong and capable, I promise everything will pass overtime. Think about a time where you've felt intense pain before and think about how that pain feels today. As people, we are built to get knocked down and pick back up, and I promise you will get back up. Please do not hesitate to reach out for help and trust the ones you care about to help. You are not alone! It will pass.
