Discovering Strength Through Vulnerability

The Purpose of your Teeth

Do you hurt for others? An ache so deep the very nerves in your teeth tremble with sobs of injustice. A shared pain gallantly attempts to feel doubly, so that others might be saved the temptation of annihilation.

No matter how vast you carve your wounds, you cannot protect others inside your spongy flesh. They will suffer. And here you’ve gone and suffered doubly for your heedless wants.

Still, I suppose it’s a romanticized bravery, and at least helps you feel like you made a good effort. No one knows any better, anyhow. It’s like your teeth were made to sob.
