Pain Gives Us X-ray Vision into the Pain of Others

February 19, 2018




Years ago when I was acting I had an experience with a well known actor that I’ll never forget. We worked on a tv show together and talked a lot in between takes. He opened up to me about his 20 year struggle with bulimia and alcoholism. He was 8 years into recovery at the time and he was reflecting/sharing about the agony of addiction and how he would drink till he was blacked out then binge and purge- this cycle would continue until he’d start vomiting blood. It was hell on earth for him. I sat their listening moved by his vulnerability and asked “why did you feel comfortable enough to share all this with me?” He replied, “I’m a Martian looking at a Martian.”✨
