hitting the raw nerves

We don’t even know where they are,

They get touched at the oddest of times,

When a musical note echoes through bones

Or the words in a book bring tears to your eyes.

I find it really strange when something really random sets off the tears and you have no idea why it’s proved to be too much for your nerves.

I went to Disneyland Paris when I was in a bit of a difficult place and the light show set me off, the drums at an Indian wedding and the lyrics to worship song at church. It can seem quite embarrassing but it must be something deep inside that has never been addressed.

I kind of imagine us a bit like those bodies in the Operation Game and when somebody says or does something to hit the metal edges, you can’t help but make a funny noise and give people around you a quick zap.

I just wish there was a little more warning before the buzzer gets set off.

Much Love

    I know just what you mean, Rachel, about those seemingly random, sometimes very small things that set us off. When that happens, we have visceral reaction, whether it’s tears or something else. As you say, something touches a nerve. It’s perfectly natural, but yes, it’d be nice to have some sort of warning or alert…
